Stereotyping

Research shows this one simple change can reduce stereotyping by kids.

"Hearing generalisations, even positive or neutral generalisations, contributes to children viewing the world in a stereotypical way. If we don’t want our children to grow up believing that race, gender, religion or other categories determine what a person can do, we need to understand that the way we use language matters."
