“Encourage children to do their part to decrease racism. If they witness someone doing or saying something unfair, they can speak up and not be a bystander. This may seem like a small thing, but it’s important. Change has to start with kids,” says Dr. Jamie Howard, a senior clinical psychologist specializing in children’s anxiety disorders at the Child Mind Institute in New York City. 

The Week Junior’s Editor in Chief, Andrea Barbalich says, “The Week Junior is here to help children ages 8-14 understand a difficult time in America. This week’s cover story explains what happened to George Floyd and why people are protesting in a factual, sensitive, age-appropriate way. We hope our coverage sparks conversations at home about race and fairness and offers parents ideas for discussing complex topics with their children.”
