"The Black Parenting Book" is a brilliant general parenting manual for baby and child care through the first five years. It combines medical know-how and expert parenting advice with perspectives unique to black parenting. For example, black children are more at-risk than white in matters such as obesity, asthma, death from falls, inadvertent poisoning, loss of self-esteem and racism, all of which are dealt with sensitively and practically. It's a really positive and wonderfully written sourcebook for parents. Together, the experienced trio of authors cover a variety of topics, including hair and body care, health and nutrition, spirituality and religion, cultural pride and self-esteem, and much more, making this an essential guide to caring for black children during the crucial first five years. How do I find a paediatrician who shares my values? What developmental milestones should I watch for? Should I straighten my child's hair? What should I say to my child about race? Are all-black nursery schools best? When do I find time for myself?
