MENTORING BLACK CHILDREN
We all want the best for our children and we want them to be the best that that can be. We want them to be successful, happy, and use there talents to withstand all the complexities life will throw their way.
As adults have you noticed how some of the struggles of the your past may have thwarted you in the present? The condemning, judging voices you heard in your childhood may have placed fears, and limits and feeling of helplessness in you today. I think this can be attributed to your earlier childhood years.
Helping our children grow up with a healthy mental attitude is the most important task of parenthood. We must instill in our children a healthy since of race pride and help them to see themselves as Beautiful, Intelligent, Loving who they are and the skin that their in.

Amos Wilson excuse the fuzziness of the video the main point is what the good doctor has to say to us.
Children develop their identity and attitudes through experiences this foundation of self-awareness is laid when children are infants and toddlers.Children notice differences among people and they learn to classify them based on color and size. They can’t yet deal with multiple classification, so they get confused about actual color of their skin.
What do you think happens to this child when all they see and learn about themselves teaches them that black is a negative thing? They begin to not like themselves. This causes them to say that they don’t like their skin color, hair texture, or another physical trait.
