We live in an increasingly diverse world, even within our own family structures. The concept of the “nuclear” family does not predominate in our society as it once did. More children are being raised by single parents, by same-sex parents, in blended families and in families with mixed race, religion and ethnicity. Even though differences are common, that does not automatically make children comfortable with their own unique family situations or with differences in their peers’ families.

Because young children form ideas about themselves and other people early in life, it is important to begin teaching antibias lessons early and to help children recognize and accept differences and see similarities beyond the surface. If we reinforce these lessons, children will learn to appreciate, rather than fear, differences and to recognize bias and stereotypes when they see them. As children begin to compare their family situation with others, they may start expressing their concerns about being different. We know that children need to be reassured that differences are fine. The exposure to families that may not be like their own, in particular, encourages tolerance and acceptance.

Words are not just words
they are kisses
on the lips of silence
that speak of your essence

and your words
are the most lovely kisses

    Tolerance and universal equality.
    If we can give this insegnamento,the world of tomorrow will be better.
    The reality is that many “educators” are locked in their pettiness.
    I rambled … YOUR JOB is BEAUTIFULLY UNIQUE AND PERFECT!

  • Thank you, Anna. I love that we agree on something so important, and I see the world becoming a better place everyday with more and more people practicing tolerance and universal equality. I appreciate your support and comments very much.

    Tori, this is fabulous work. You go from strength to strength not only in your technique and your artistic styling and conception (LOVE how you worked both composition and colors in this!)… but in the messages you transmit through your art. If a picture says a thousand words, your images go well into the gazillions.
    And btw, thanks so much for helping to keep the bar raised in DAC :-)
    Awesome creativity!!

  • Billy? I live for comments like this. You are so generous, and your support means a great deal to me. Thank you
    for your wonderful words. I appreciate you very much.

    The two birds express beautifully the freedom of being “released” from those “views” which imprison or “cage” and lead to bias or intolerance, to those able to “see similarities beyond the surface” and accept what some may consider “different” (as conveyed here through the “weird” hair-do or dress), Another well thought out work Tori!!

  • I do like telling stories with art, Ramesh, and your interest and support is gratifying.
    Thank you my friend, I appreciate you very much.
