How do I get my husband onboard for teaching my children Arabic?

My husband is against me teaching my kids Arabic, he says kids will make fun of them in school. I feel that it’s not fair for them to not speak the language when both parents and family speak it.

When should I talk to my young kids about racism?

When is a good time to begin confronting racism and prejudices with my children? It's really important to me that I start with them early, but can it be possible that it is too early for them to even grasp what I am talking about? Really needing some advice on this.

How do I find a balance when trying to help encourage my child to grow?

How can we best encourage our little ones without pushing too hard or hand holding too much? It's something I really struggle with and I feel like no matter what I do things are out of balance. Anyone else deal with these feelings? Maybe this is the "mom guilt" everyone has been talking about?
