Today’s society has made progress and shown a slight openness to past taboo concepts, such as gender, sexual orientation, physical disability, mental illness, race, and religion. Despite this, cases of suicidal behavior among young people due to school bullying or cyberbullying remain a concerning issue. The last Eurostat report from 2016 showed that young people between the ages of 15 and 19, as well as young adults aged 20 to 24, died from self-harm at almost the same percentage as those who died from transportation accidents.
The “Like father, like son” initiative aims to equip parents and guardians of children aged between 10 and 15 with knowledge and tools to help them explain the various aspects of diversity to children and young people. In doing so, it seeks to promote the understanding that diversity comes in many forms and should be considered normal and deserving of respect.
