Who am I? Understanding Children's Identity Formation
Thursday, February 8th
Facilitated by Sarah R. Lytle
It's no secret that young children learn a lot in the first five years of life, buthowdochildren learn about themselves, their preferences, and theirownpersonality? This discussion will focus on how children begin to form an identity. We will discuss the latest research and consider how environmental cues influence children's identities,including the impact of race and racism on children's understanding of themselves and the social world. We will also explore how adults canbestsupport children as they figure out who they are.
