Black Lives Matter

“Black Lives Matter” has been prominent in news coverage over the last few weeks, generating a lot of discussion that children may find confusing and that adults may find difficult to explain.

Black Lives Matter

The attached resources can help you in enabling children to understand what is happening, (and maybe give some clarity to adults!)

When we explain BLM to children, we are not saying that nobody else matters, rather the events that have taken place recently make it appropriate to think about these issues and discuss them now. An example in the attached resource explains it like this – “Imagine if you broke your leg and had to go to the Doctor. You would want to tell the Doctor that right now, your leg was in pain. Whilst ALL your bones matter, right now, it’s your leg that needs attention.”

We hope this assists you in having these conversations.
