From Roots to Wings by James Young
Book DescriptionMerging theory with practical advice, this guide recognizes the unique challenges facing African American parents and offers successful parenting stategies to overcome them. Peer pressure, television, and rap music seem to be socializing today's black youth, but this book argues that parental attention is more powerful. Case studies and other research look at expectations, listening, goal-setting, careful time management, nutrition, attention to academics and grades, consistency, prayer, and quality time, and their effectiveness in strong black families.
