Deborah Bach, ‘Study: Children can ‘catch’ social bias through nonverbal signals expressed by adults’,, University of Washington | Seattle, WA (December 21, 2016).


Kids are picking up on more than we think they are, and you don’t have to tell them that one group is better than another group for them to be getting that message from how we act. (…) The study’s findings (…) underscore the need for parents and other adults to be aware of the messages — verbal or otherwise — that they convey to children about how they feel about other people.
