A PBS article, Children and Media, highlights 7 Ways to Fight Stereotypes. This list does include stereotypes about age which is frequently left out of many lists of “isms” such as racism. Avoiding race and gender stereotypes are often mentioned with regard to good parenting, and sadly ageism is often ignored. Time for us all to take note and speak up.
Please read my previous post “Six reasons to Seek Out Positive Aging Children’s Books” and recommend my resource list for kids’ summer reading.
Watch for weekly book reviews.
