ARP wants your tips for anti-racist parenting

From Anti-Racist Parent, where both I and Dr. Lo Siento are proud to be columnists, comes this call for anti-racist parenting tips. Writes site founder Carmen Van Kerckhove:

What’s your best tip for anti-racist parenting?

I’m putting together a free e-book called How to Be an Anti-Racist Parent: Real-Life Parents Share Real-Life Tips that will be made available to everyone who visits this blog.

May I get a tip (or several, even!) from you? Here are some possible topics to get you thinking:

•What books, activities or toys do you recommend for children?
•How do you handle awkward questions from strangers about your child?
•What books or videos/DVDs do you recommend for parents who want to educate themselves about racism?
•How do you instill a good sense of self-esteem in your child?
•How do you work with teachers to create the best possible learning environment for your child?
•How do you teach children about racism in an age-appropriate way?
•or anything else you’d like to share…

Let other parents benefit from what you’ve learned by sharing your tips, stories and recommendations with us!

Here’s how to do it:

Email your submissions to team@antiracistparent.com, and be sure to do the following:

•Write “parenting tips” in the subject line
•Specify what name you’d like us to use, or if you’d like it to be anonymous
•Include a URL to your blog or web site, if you’d like
•Keep each tip, story or recommendation to 500 words or less

If chosen, your tip — in your own words — will be published in the e-book next month. It will be made available to everyone who visits this blog.

The deadline for submissions is 5 pm Eastern, February 28, 2007.

Thanks so much!
