Joy and Challenge of Raising African-American Children

Overview

In recent years, how we birth, nurture, and educate children in the United States has been the subject of furious national debate.

Overview

In recent years, how we birth, nurture, and educate children in the United States has been the subject of furious national debate. No part of this debate is more critical or more intense than that concerning black children, who are counted atrisk in more categories and in higher percentages than perhaps any other ethnic group.

Now comes Emma Talbott, parent and educator, with The Joy and Challenge of Raising African American Children. Her book is practical, bold, and filled with essential information as well as voice-of experience opinions on how to help today's African American children achieve success. Some of her advice will be controversial; much of it will be hard to take. As often as not, she tells black parents they must shape themselves up if they expect their children to grow into healthy, mature adults. Talbott is speaking directly to African American parents, but her insights on "The Big R" of racism and other topics are vital reading for concerned persons of all races.

Talbott's lessons range from parents' involvement with their children's education and schools to what parents can do at home to enhance the identity and self-esteem of the child.

After a brief but meaningful look at African American history of the U.S., Talbott turns her attention to how black families can nurture their children with respect to that history. Talbott is brave enough to tackle issues such as health and lifestyle choices. Her strongest message is that the value placed by parents on education and direct parental involvement in their child's education both in and outside the classroom is what reaps rewards. "Be there" is the message, and it is well said.
