How to Teach Children Patience and Acceptance
Tips for Teaching Patience
Do not expect children to understand vague responses when they ask you a question.
Follow through with what you have told your children.
Give your children something to do with their time while they are having to wait.
Praise your child when he or she has shown patience.
Tips for Teaching Acceptance
Teach your children at a young age that everyone is different, special, and beautiful.
Use things in your daily life to show your child about the differences in people.
Teach a child that no two people think or feel the same way about something. Teach a child to respect the feelings of another.
If you are present when your child sees or hears someone, or a group, being stereotyped, tell your child that it is wrong to generalize people and put them in categories.
Teach your child not to make fun of how someone looks, acts, talks or dresses. Explain to your child that it hurts the other person.
Never allow your child to talk “down” about other people, or to people.
Let your child see that you are active in your community and friendly with people who are different from you.
