Edit* How do I get my 4 year old to accept kids of other races?
Where we are from is predominately white. We don't have any friends or family members of different cultures or races. It's not that we have anything against them, we just haven't lived in a community where we were presented with opportunities to make acquaintes with any. Until now. We recently moved to a neighboring town where there are quite a few different races.
I never thought that it would be an issue. But at her kindergarten screening there was an Indian boy and the teacher wanted all the kids to hold each others hands and DD refused to hold this boys hand. Usually she is very friendly with all the other kids. When I asked her later why she wouldn't hold his hand she said "because he's funny looking and brown."
I'm not sure how to go about explaining to her that we don't treat people that way. No one. If they are brown, black, yellow, or green for that matter.
Any suggestions on how to bring this conversation to a kindergarten level?
