The Currys are taking a no-nonsense approach when it comes to discussing social issues at home with their kids.

In a new feature for Self magazine, Ayesha Curry — a chef, cookbook author and mom to son Canon W. Jack, 2, plus daughters Ryan Carson, 5, and Riley, 8 — reveals that she and husband Steph took their oldest child to a Black Lives Matter protest after the killing of George Floyd.

"I think we protested seven miles that day, so we knew Ryan wasn't going to make it for the walk. But with our oldest, we felt like it was time," says Ayesha, 31. "I mean, even if it wasn't time, it was time, you know what I mean? And we felt like the best way to explain everything to her was for her to see it and understand it and hear it firsthand. So we brought her with us."
