Sometimes when I write about modern-day slavery and our family’s personal mission to abolish it, I get emails from readers with questions like these:
“How do I talk to my children about an issue as dark and complex as this one?”
This post addresses those questions, providing ideas about how to approach this topic with your own family. I’ve categorized the thoughts below by age range, but please keep in mind that our kids vary drastically in their development.
Some will be ready for information at an early age, some late. I tend to veer toward the better late than early philosophy–especially when I’m giving advice to so many of you–but you are the expert in your home so adjust as needed.
