When laugh at the “Bad Hair” your children

Part Two: The psychologist Mercedes Rodriguez explains how to treat children when they are victims of bullying or harassment by other children, especially when they mock them for the type of hair you have or physical.

What can parents do when they learn that their daughter has received taunts related to type of hair you have?

If she refers a situation of harassment or bullying, should parents and mothers take the complaint seriously, act ethically supporting and protecting-at any moment to the child; should not be minimized, should visit the school and talk with teachers / or directors; and take all affirmative measures necessary to cease the abusive behavior that the person who commits it has a reprimand or disciplinary action proportionate to the act (or acts), to understand and learn the seriousness of the matter and that this (with full knowledge of their parents) agrees to make efforts repairers damage.

We as adults must stop using expressions bad hair and an example to the children, where do you start, when all life (in our country) have referred to bad hair curly or afro hair?

It begins when the mother and father are aware. Unfortunately where ignorance persists not start because it continues. That is the traditional way this perpetuates discrimination and others – from generation to generation. Therefore it is recommended that the school play a more active role in promoting human rights and gender equity, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, etc.etc … The school should guide parents / mothers and the educational community. The State shall promote, through legislation and practices of equity, and eliminating all kinds of prejudice and discrimination. Parents and conscious mothers practice equity from homes and are very jealous with the protection of human rights of children; do not make jokes, sexist or racist or homophobic nature expose their children to readings, films, activities recreational and cultural activities that raise awareness about these issues, and at home take every opportunity they have for their children feel loved and appreciated by people who are -for their good qualities, their bodies and their characteristics. Boys and girls of African descent learn at home to feel happy -orgullosos / as- with their bodies, with their hair and their lives. That’s one way to honor their history, their families, their struggles and traditions of African descent. They learn that they do not have to change anything about their bodies or their hair to feel beautiful and beautiful because they grow and love their people and positively identify with what they are.

Definitely bad hair does not exist, there are bad prejudices that degrade human beings. At this time we support education for equity to leave behind the discrimination and violence based on gender, ethnicity, national origin, social status, sexual orientation, religion, etc.
