Publisher's Description

Stickin' To, Watchin' Over, and Gettin' With provides the guidance you need to protect your children from racist hostility while at the same time teaching them character and responsibility. Just as important, the book also shows how to discipline your children in a way that does not rely on spanking or other forms of painful coercion. Written by three African American educators, counselors, and parents, this book outlines an effective program for raising and disciplining your children,

Editorial Reviews

Clinical psychologist Stevenson, Gwendolyn Davis, a social worker and psychologist, and Saburah Abdul-Kabir, a community outreach coordinator at the University of Pennsylvania's Community Outreach Through Parental Empowerment program, have collaborated on Stickin' to, Watchin' Over, and Gettin' With, a guide about discipline for African American parents. The authors suggest a trifold approach to discipline: showing love and affection, being involved with children and community, and providing correction and accountability. Addressing preschoolers, school-age children, preadolescents, and teenagers, they clearly explain how to help children deal with racism and how parenting is different for African Americans. Many of the same strengths identified by Harris (e.g., community involvement, sense of heritage, affection, and hope) are reiterated here. Reference and resource lists are apprehended. Both books are enthusiastically recommended. --Kay Brodie, Chesapeake Coll., Wye Mills, MD (Library Journal, October 15, 2001)
This well-written book contributes substantially to child-rearing literature for African American parents. Through their trifold approach to discipline, showing love and affection, being involved with children and community, and providing correction and accountability, the authors clearly explain how to help children deal with racism and how parenting is different for African Americans. Highly recommended! (Library Journal)
