Many adults are in protests, but many children may be a bit confused on exactly why all this violence is going on with the conversation of change being bandied about.
50 Cent recently sat down with Kelly Clarkson on The Kelly Clarkson Show and this very topic was discussed about how to speak with their kids about the situation. The two artists acknowledged that they are talking about it with their kids and also know of other parents who are doing the same. 50 Cent explained that he spoke to his son Sire, though he admitted at first, it was a bit complicated to explain.
“I’m blessed with him only being seven. So, it’s like, I have to explain to him why the protests but not with the depth that would allow him to say — to put me in those awkward situations,” 50 Cent said. Clarkson explained how she has these conversations with her kids and acknowledged how these conversations with her white children would be different from Fif’s conversation with his kid.
“It’s also they’re delicate. I always look at him and say I don’t want to over-exert these things to him and jade his perspective at the same time,” 50 Cent added.
