Teaching children to combat misinformation
Parents can help kids fight misinformation by first being responsible consumers of information themselves.
Make sure that we talk to kids about misinformation. [MUSIC PLAYING]
Parents can help their children combat misinformation by, first, being responsible consumers of information themselves.
There is just so much information out there right now. And I think that it's really important that we can tell the difference between what
is biased reporting, what is an opinion, versus what is an actual fact. So being able to do your due diligence,
do your research about where you're getting your information from, and walking the children through, like, OK, this is how I came to this website,
and this is why I trust this website. And I think that it's important as, you know, parents and responsible consumers
to help children understand that, you know, just because there's biases, that does not mean right versus wrong, good versus bad.
It just simply means one perspective versus another. So sometimes maybe even helping children challenge some of the things that they're learning from certain news
