3. Understand that children are keenly aware of differences and must learn to accept them. Do not diminish authentic differences as a means of avoiding conflict.

4. Recognize that an educator's behavior sets an example for her/his students.

5. Remember that behavioral change is slow. Children are exposed to a range of influences outside the classroom which educators can either reinforce or challenge.
