"African American Children is a comprehensive exploration of historical and contemporary patterns of parenting in black families. Historically, it focuses on how slavery, race, the racial caste system, and the African American culture influenced the ways in which African Americans parented their children. This series of social forces seriously circumscribed the ability of African Americans to conform to the ideologies about the nature of children and the roles of parents that began to evolve in the earth 20[superscript th] century. In the context of growing diversity, Shirley A. Hill examines the work that African American parents do in raising their children and explores general child socialization patterns, as well as parenting issues and challenges. Providing an analysis of the views, philosophies, and parenting strategies of parent from a variety of social class backgrounds. African American Children combines both qualitative and quantitative data collected to examine a broad overview of current theoretical debates about African American families as they relate to child socialization."--BOOK JACKET.
