If you adopted your child transracially, what does he or she experience growing up? How should you be talking about race and racism, birth culture, and differences in your family to instill a positive racial identity? How should you discuss teasing he or she may face at school, as well as societal attitudes and events in the news to help your child navigate a world that is far from colorblind, now and as an adult?
In this webinar, social worker and adult adoptee Deborah H. Johnson discusses transracial parenting from a professional and personal perspective, and answers real families’ questions.
