Books We Love!: CHILD PLEASE, How Mama’s Old-School Lessons Helped Me Check Myself Before I Wrecked Myself

We love a good parenting take, especially one from a smart and savvy black perspective. That’s why we just heart the new book by journalist and parenting expert, Ylonda Gault Caviness.

Foregoing the politically correct safe zone, Caviness takes a refreshing perspective to reveal the hard and fast rules of being black in America, including the unique and sometimes jarring set of expectations and goals under which black parents operate.  In this wise and funny memoir, Caviness describes her journey to the realization that all the parenting advice she was obsessively devouring as a new parent (and sharing with the world as a parenting expert on NPR,Today, in The Huffington Post, and elsewhere) didn’t mean scratch compared to her mama’s old school wisdom as a strong black woman and mother. Caviness’ fantastic narrative is the perfect tribute to the wit, wisdom, and attitude of the women who raise us. Go get it!
