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.

Editorial Reviews

Clinical psychologist Stevenson, Gwendolyn Davis, a social workerand psychologist, and Saburah Abdul-Kabir, a community outreachcoordinator at the University of Pennsylvania's Community OutreachThrough Parental Empowerment program, have collaborated on Stickin'to, Watchin' Over, and Gettin' With, a guide about discipline forAfrican American parents. The authors suggest a trifold approach todiscipline: showing love and affection, being involved withchildren and community, and providing correction andaccountability. Addressing preschoolers, school-age children,preadolescents, and teenagers, they clearly explain how to helpchildren deal with racism and how parenting is different forAfrican Americans. Many of the same strengths identified by Harris(e.g., community involvement, sense of heritage, affection, andhope) are reiterated here. Reference and resource lists areapprehended. Both books are enthusiastically recommended. --KayBrodie, Chesapeake Coll., Wye Mills, MD (Library Journal, October15, 2001)

Highly recommended! (Library Journal)
