My youngest is 3. We were watching Independence Day and all of a sudden he points to Will Smith and screamed "Mom, his ears is black and he gots a black head!!!"
I honestly laughed out loud! HAHA!!
So we explained to him that different people look different, but that they are still all people, just like him... He said, "I like purple!" I don't think he completely got it, but it was an interesting talk...
How did you know your kids noticed other races? How did you explain it to them? How old were they? My oldest has never made a big deal out of it. He's noticed but never cared - I know he noticed cause he told me about his new girlfriend (some girl he met at McDonalds) and he called her his "brown friend," he's 4. So I was a little caught off guard for this out of the lil one... I'm fine with it & happy about how it all went, but I wondered about how it happened for others...
