Hh is for hair. I picked this topic for a few different reasons… one well I’m sure hair has been a topic of discussion since the pandemic, I know it has been in my house. Two… it is a great way to discuss the importance of seeing, acknowledging, and accepting the differences in people. Often times parents, teachers and other adult say “children don’t see color” this isn’t true… they do. The difference is they do not judge on the color of a persons skin. Prejudice and bias is taught, but so is acceptance and love. When we talk about differences, and show that the things that make you different are the things that make you special, we don’t pretend that people are all the same… we accept, acknowledge and love the differences in us all.
