NBC Parent Toolkit is asking for parents to consider and write, video or take a photo of a resolution that states your desire for your own learning and development in this new school year. What do you want to focus on with your children in the coming year? Want do you want to learn or how can you improve? My resolution is to talk about issues that, I realize, are critical but often make me uncomfortable like racism and sexuality. My seven year old asks questions and encounters plenty of social opportunities to discuss these tough issues. I was involved with the Toolkit’s “Tough Talks” last year which was an excellent primer for me in thinking about difficult topics of conversation. Check out mine and other parents’ resolutions.
