Summary

African American children face many imposing threats in today's world -- academic failure, drugs, gangs, irresponsible sex, and attraction to crime, among others. For the parents of these children, it takes knowledge, effort, and caring to effectively deal with such tough issues. In Smart Parenting for African Americans, Dr. Jeffrey Gardere presents a savvy, realistic guide for today's black parents. He takes an honest look at the problems their children face and stresses the importance of strong parent-child communication for fostering self-esteem.
