In our divisive society of differing political and social views, how do you talk to your kids about differences of opinion? Brene Brown offers some great advice to help you teach respectful conversation. #respect #loveothers #parenting #society ... See MoreSee Less

"Regardless of politics, how do I talk to my kids about the divisive and sometimes hateful rhetoric that we’re seeing right now?” I answered this question on Friday while addressing folks’ most common questions in The Gifts of Imperfect Parenting course. My team pulled this clip because it’s a question I’ve heard outside the course as well, especially this weekend. Communicating with our kids in a way that builds empathy and nurtures connection has never been more challenging or important. UPDATE: Love this conversation! Thank y'all for sharing examples and asking more questions. A couple of you asked about friends, neighbors, and relatives who have opinions that cross the line of respectful "difference" into unacceptable. From the time our kids were two they were in schools in Houston that were incredibly inclusive. Their elementary school had kids who represented 40+ countries of origin - first generation. I remember Ellen coming home from school starving because she was sitting with a friend who didn't eat lunch during Ramadan. Our conversations about privilege, racism, homophobia, classism, and other forms of oppression started very early. Honestly, if families expressed hurtful beliefs or used dehumanizing language, our kids did not spend time at their house. If it's a relative, we set the boundary and don't budge. Laughing and shrugging it off has never been our policy. That would be against our family's values.
