The Socially Just Parenting Project
We believe that children are socialized from very early on into a social world that is characterized by historically constructed systems of injustice: racism, sexism, classism, homophobia, and so on. This socialization continues throughout one’s life and it shapes the lenses through which we view ourselves, others, and the world around us. A primary way to begin to refashion the social world in a more just way is to provide our children with a critical perspective on the social world and their own socialization. Since this socialization begins very early (by 3-4 years old), we believe that socially just parenting should begin very early as well.
