For Parents or caregivers
The greatest prevention plan may come from parents. Parents must set good examples in their attitudes, words and behavior towards others. Children are able to recognize differences and hold sectarian prejudices from the age of three.
For young people
It is very important that you realize that the world is a very big place and there are humans living in many other places, very far from you. Because of that, people do things differently and are brought up differently. That means what you think is cool may not be so for another person, because of where they come from. Being different is a good thing.
Children are never born racists or with discriminatory minds. They learn these behaviors from people and events around them. If parents or care givers tell them things that make them see people in a different light, they will grow up with that idea, and it may be difficult to correct when they are adults.
