What is it about?

Parents can provide examples of social norms about ethnic-racial diversity and relationships when interacting with their children. The current study identifies how parents in the Netherlands convey messages in line with color-evasiveness and white normativity, while playing a 'Guess who?' game with their child.

Why is it important?

The results of this study suggest that even in very basic interactions with their parents, children might already learn societal norms that conflict with antiracism. It is important that parents are aware of the signals their behavior sends, especially as these may be unintentional, in order to promote more inclusive norms in the next generation.
