Kids can say the darndest things. So how should adults respond when a child's natural curiosity and observations sound inappropriate? And how should we model open-mindedness? Expert panelists and museum educators will explore these questions and others in a relaxed and interactive discussion with parents and care providers. The program will conclude with an exhibition tour that will provide support to families as they explore art with unexpected subject matter together.

Refreshments will be served at 2 PM, and the program will begin at 2:15. Children 3 and younger are welcome to attend with caregivers. Tickets may be reserved by visiting the Museum admission desk, or by calling (916) 808-1184.
