Children and culture

If you come from a different cultural, linguistic or religious background, teaching your child about their heritage may be important to you. Discuss this with your partner from the beginning, especially if you have a different heritage than your partner.

Demonstrate the importance of diversity to your child by taking the initiative to learn about other cultures, religions and languages. To feel an accepted and effective member of society, an individual has to be able to accept others from all religious, ethnic and community groups. This will make your child feel confident about their identity and being part of multicultural Australia.
