My ds1 (6 yo) innocently asked me to pass him the "skin colour" pencil yesterday (Light Peach). That alarmed me and I said straight away "skin colour? What do you mean? There is no one skin colour. There are lots of different skin colours"- and then I went into a rambling lecture about diversity and tolerance and race while he just stared at me and blinked. I don't think I handled it well. Any tips for how I should respond next time? I asked him why he called it that and he said his friends at school do. It just doesn't seem right. Sorry if this has already been hashed out as an issue- please link to thread if so!
