In his New York Times oped, Esau McCaulley discusses the burden of deciding just how much to disclose to a child about the dangers of Covid-19. For example, should we as parents tell our children how many people have died so they stay safe…or should we let them remain children longer? McCaulley then compares this experience to the experience of parenting black children in a world that isn’t always safe for them. If this isn’t a dynamic you contend with in your parenting journey, this article provides a great avenue to build knowledge and empathy of a different experience than your own. Another similar example, outside the scope of this article is the struggle parents of girls face when they decide how much and when to tell them about the dangers of sexual assault.
