The components of human diversity will influence children to not only view their backgrounds as something great but to view the people around them that even though their gender, race/ethnicity, and religion is not the same as their's, that it is normal. It will open their eyes to the diverse world that we live in, it will influence them on how to be kind and friendly to the people they are surrounded by on a daily basis.

Parents raise their children based on the cultural background they were brought up in. That does not mean that one culture is superior to another. A good teacher tries to understand how a child's behavior is influenced by that child's culture and develop enriching learning experiences for young children based on children's unique cultural experiences, beliefs and traditions.

The components of human diversity influence children to understand and accept that, although others have different cultures than their own, all cultural backgrounds deserve to be recognized and respected. There is no culture that outweighs the others in importance. They are all equal, and should be seen as such.

Not only do the children's' individual cultural components influence their acceptance, exposure to differing cultural backgrounds influence it as well. When children interact with people of different language backgrounds, religion, family history, ability, socio-economic class, and race or ethnicity, they learn about the differences among people in the world, and we as childcare staff guide them into learning that these differences are to be celebrated and that they bring us together as a community.

It is very important to share with children that in the world there are people with different races, genders, languages, abilities and life experiences, among others, this situation makes us different from each other, however, we must respect the different points of view of each person since we are all equal.

It is common for a child to adopt the beliefs and ideas of their parents as their own. This is why it is so important to be able to understand and discuss a child's family and their unique beliefs as opposed to your own. A child will be able to more closely identify with you as a teacher if you can relate with their family's beliefs and diversity; to discuss your own diversity and beliefs as if they are superior or the norm is misleading for your students. All beliefs, customs, and aspects of diversity are equal and should be both respected and discussed. Straying from "the norms" in a classroom will benefit your class as a whole.

The components of human diversity can greatly impact a child's well-being, behavior, and growth. For example, a child may come from a Chinese household and mostly speaks Mandarin and knows very little English that child will most likely have great difficulty communicating with strictly English speaking classmates and teachers. This gap in communication will negativity impact the child's behavior and growth and that is why it so important to provide a classroom that has language accommodations so that all children feel welcome no matter what language they speak. This kind of classroom environment would also promote other students to want to learn different languages so that they commicate with one another. Another accommodation the teacher could provide for their students is classroom activities that would provide the children information on different cultures of the world and how they are celebrated so that no child feels like they and their culture are not appreciated creating a positive classroom environment for all.
