Raising Black Chil..
In this revision of their acclaimed parenting manual Black Child Care: How To Bring Up a Healthy Black Child in America ( LJ 5/15/75), noted psychiatrists Comer ( Maggie's American Dream: The Life and Times of a Black Family , LJ 11/1/88) and Poussaint explore central psychological, social, and educational aspects of child development from infancy through adolescence. Using a question-and-answer format, they address problems and situations particular to raising an African American child in a predominantly white society. Topics discussed include how to cope with racism, the pros and cons of busing, and universal child - rearing concerns. Many issues overlooked in traditional parenting manuals, such as the absent parent, gang involvement, and teenage sexuality, are treated here with admirable candor and directness. The importance of developing a child's self-esteem, sense of security, and racial and personal pride is affirmed throughout. This is a necessary addition to all parenting and parent-teacher collections.
