Renowned psychologists Darlene Powell Hopson and Derek S. Hopson explore the sometimes tough, sometimes unspoken, questions that face the Black middle-class today, particularly parents.From Library Journal:
This exceptional, well-written book is the result of a study conducted by the authors in 1985-86 and presented to the American Psychological Association in 1987. Its purpose is to help black middle-class parents prepare their children to become positive, productive, and self-respecting individuals in American society. To that end, a series of self-evaluation tools interspersed throughout the text enables parents to explore their own attitudes about being black. The technique of positive parenting described is exemplary for all parents. Chapters focus on modeling, strengthening, and open communication of parents on such complex issues as racial identification, teenage sexuality, day care, and family relations during the developmental stages of childhood to adulthood. The stated goals empower black families to cope with still-racist institutions. A significant contribution is the network of resources (books, magazines, games and toys, and cultural centers) that celebrate black culture. The approaches of this work make it imperative reading for concerned parents everywhere. Highly recommended.
