In our society, we are surrounded by differences in ethnicity, religion, culture, gender, disabilities and many more. We love to be surrounded by a multicultural society and this mostly depends on our own exposure and attitudes towards our interaction with different people.
We all want our kids to feel relaxed and open to learning from different cultures – new ideas and unique experiences. Our kids can potentially learn bundles from other cultures.
All individuals need to model and display tolerance in their every day actions and words to teach kids “respect, acceptance and appreciation of the rich diversity of our world’s cultures, our forms of expression and ways of being human”.

Being tolerant towards people different from us doesn’t mean sacrificing your own heritage or beliefs. We can be proud and firmly stand by those beliefs whole heartedly while continuing to celebrate the differences of others.
Children closely watch and imitate their parents, even before they can speak. Kids will mirror the values and attitudes of those they love and look up to. The tolerance level that parents possess naturally teaches their kids the importance of the same.
Few tips for teaching tolerance to the children:
