About Explaining Protests to kids:
There are several ways that you can increase your child’s emotional intelligence and empathy.

If YOU, the parent, have and demonstrate empathy, your children will grow up to be empathic. Give money to homeless folks, check in on friends, family and neighbors who are ill and/or struggling, take your child to a peaceful, family friendly protest, volunteer at a food bank together. SHOW UP the way you’d like your child to show up someday.
