How do you base studies on what a 5 year old thinks as intelligent I am not saying 5 year olds don't have an opinion, but that their opinions change every 3 mins."My daughters are 4 and 2 years old. I didn't realize that at 2 years old I'd have to start teaching them to be proud of their skin color."
what??? How can you tell a 2 year old, 'you're brown my son and you should be proud'?
First part was good point. Yes you could teach a child at 2 to be proud of their skin color. It's right up there with telling to pee in the toliet and not on the floor and eat with your fork and not with your hands, etc.
