Inclusiveness is the intentional practice of making sure others are not left out. It is offering a seat at the table for all people. It is making sure no one is marginalized or discriminated against. When we are inclusive, we are able to learn from others who have different experiences, attitudes and mindsets than our own. When we are inclusive, we become stronger.  Inclusive children are kind, empathetic, thoughtful and encouraging. Below you will find resources you can use at home to help teach this important skill to your child.
