CAP Tulsa’s early childhood education programs can help you strengthen your relationship with your child while preparing her for kindergarten. Our Teachable Moments provide tips and information to help you connect with your child and make sure they are developmentally on track.
It is important to help your child learn about their own culture and the cultures of others to help them build a sense of identity and respect. Talk with your child about ways we are the same, for example, we all need to be loved by our families and we all need to eat and sleep. Then, talk about all the ways people are unique and different, for example, some people speak different languages or eat different foods.
Share different cultures with them through books, food or learning how to say “hello” in different languages.
Helping your child learn to appreciate what makes everyone unique will teach them how to value these differences in the world around them.
