A protest sign that says "Being Black Isn't A Choice, Wearing A Badge Is" held by a demonstrator at a demonstration against police violence in Phoenix on May 31, 2020.

Lots of parents have been wondering how to talk to their kids about the protests that have followed the killing of George Floyd — that includes parents and kids of all races and ethnicities.
