A few ground rules 🙂

To make the games applicable children should be at least 4 years old.

These tasks are intended to promote parent-child dialogue. There is therefore no right or wrong.

Please let the child decide and speak freely.

Please do not give answers to the child. Only ask questions.

Please do not judge the child's answers.

What are hints for bias?

Examples that DO hint towards bias:

Child matches people and professions after a biased pattern. (e.g., matches low-income professions only to a certain gender or skin-color, or says ``Only men can be pilots``, or ``All cashiers are women``).

Examples that DO NOT hint towards bias

Child shows selects random couples.
Child states, that there is no logic in matching them, e.g. “There is no right or wrong``.
