LABELS AND STEREOTYPES
PURPOSE: To define labels and stereotypes while showing the limits they place on both individuals and relationships.
- Labels and stereotypes give us incorrect and narrow ideas about people
- Labels and stereotypes can also be used as a reason for treating people unfairly and sometimes as a reason to bully others
- It is important to question the labels and stereotypes we have for people and look beyond our assumptions to see the whole person
