Hey Sa'Weet-Tartz ™! Welcome back to LK's Lollipop Korner ™! LK and I watched this program together and then had a conversation about it and we wanted to share that with you. It is pretty interesting what she pointed out to me! LET'S CHECK IT OUT!
Meringue Love: Hi my Baby… How are you doing today?
LK: I am your Baby!
Meringue Love: YES YOU ARE! So tell me LK, how did you like the show we just watched on Nickelodeon?
LK: I like her, she is so pretty!
Meringue Love: Yes, Ms. Alicia is very pretty! And did you see Ms. Tab and Choyce on there as well? What do you think about that?
LK: Yea, I did see Misses Tab and her family. I love them too and Simone. I can do gymnastics.
Meringue Love: That’s right Baby, it was Ms. Tab’s whole family, her husband Mr. Chance and her son Quest and her daughter Choyce! And Simone Biles the gymnast…YES you like her! Very Good! (In my Tabitha Brown voice)
LK: Umm Hmmmm!
Meringue Love: So, tell me what you thought about all of the kids that were on the show and what they were doing? Do you know what they were doing?
LK: Yea, they were on the TV and some of them were yelling. I want to be on the TV too!
Meringue Love: Yes, they were on TV and some of them were yelling but it all was for a good reason. So, one day you can be on TV if that is what you want to do... but today, let’s just pretend you are on TV and I am going to interview you and ask you questions like Ms. Alicia was asking the kids. Okay?
LK: Yes, Mommy that is okay!
Meringue Love: So tell me what you noticed about some of the boys and girls on the TV. Do any of them look like you?
LK: Yes, some of the kids are girls like me and some are brown girls like me and I am a beautiful brown girl.
Meringue Love: That is right Baby! You are a beautiful brown girl! What else did you notice?
LK: That they did the Tik Tok Savage Dance… Like me!
Meringue Love: LOL… Yes they did! You said they were yelling, do you know why they were yelling?
LK: Yea… Because they were mad!
Meringue Love: Yes they were upset about people being treated different because of their skin color. Do you remember I told you that some people may treat you mean or different because your skin is brown?
LK: Yes, but you won’t let nobody talk to your baby like that?
Meringue Love: That’s right Baby! But you also have to learn to speak up for yourself and others that people are being mean to because of their skin color. That’s what these children on TV were doing. And you have to do it without being mean back to them.
LK: Yes because that’s not nice. And I won’t be mean.
Meringue Love: That’s very good Baby!
LK: Mommy are we done yet?
Meringue Love: Yes Baby… We are done! Thank you for letting me interview you!
LK: You’re welcome!
*Our conversation went on longer than this… but LK kept losing focus and was done with this conversation way before I was. LOL I would encourage you to watch this video with your little Sa’Weet-Tartz ™ and then get their feedback on it. Their responses WILL AMAZE YOU... AND, YOU WILL LEARN A THING OR TWO... I PROMISE YOU!!!
