Kristen Bell is against racism and she is doing something about it by starting in her home. Having two daughters, the actress said that she’s going to teach them the right thing.
Kristen Bell has always been outspoken when it comes to various issues. And, in the middle of the protests happening in the U.S., she is determined to do her part and that is to raise non-racist children.
Kristen Bell shares daughters Lincoln, 7, and Delta, 5, with actor husband Dax Shepherd.
With the recent events surrounding the Black Lives Matter protests, Bell said she vows to continue raising her girls as anti-racists.
She explained that she and Dax are “very opinionated” and “talk a lot.” Because of that, they felt that their critical thinking skills have been picked up by their children.
“I will raise anti-racists. My husband and I are very opinionated; we talk a lot. Our kids are a nightmare. They’re a nightmare because they will tell you your opinion,” Bell said.
She joked about her girls being a nightmare until they’re 18. Despite that, Bell emphasized that she is proud of her girls. She admires how they have grown to be strong-willed, opinionated young ladies.
The mother of two even started an upfront conversation with her girls despite being young. She showed to them what is currently happening in their country and that’s when they had a “very honest, hard uncomfortable conversation.”
Bell’s book is designed to educate kids from an early age about racism and equality. At the same time, it also includes ridding future generations of discomfort when conversing about racial injustices.
“I want to tell my kids to look for sameness. Sameness comes in the form of values, and personality, and action, not of colors,” she said.
Supporting her daughters
Moreover, Bell shared that she will support her daughters no matter what. She will not care whatever path they choose including their sexual orientation and their careers.
The Bad Moms star is very open about such matters and she said that she just wants to love them for who they are.
In the end, Kristen Bell is confident to be sending their daughters into the world knowing that they are “formidable, opinionated, kind, and morally-compassed women.”
