Effective Black Parenting Series

Posted on April 2, 2004

Effective Black Parenting Series: “Stickin’ To, Watchin’ Over, and Gettin’ With: An African American Parent’s Guide to Discipline,” An Evening With the Authors

Has parenting got you stressed out? Howard Stevenson, Associate Professor of education in the School, Community, and Child Clinical Psychology Program in the Graduate School of Education at Penn and co-authors Gwendolyn Davis and Saburah Abdul-Kabir discuss their book which outlines an effective program for raising your children with unconditional love, support, supervision, protection, and accountability. Their book also offers alternatives to discipline that do not rely on spanking or other forms of painful coercion when you’re at your wit’s end. The authors draw on the richness of African American storytelling, proverbs and the oral tradition to teach Black parents how to prepare their children to survive and thrive in an often hostile world.

Copies of the book will be available for purchase at a discounted price. Light refreshments served. Call Rashida Holmes at (215) 823-5288 or e-mail rholmes@pobox.upenn.edu for more information or to pre-register. Co-sponsored by the Penn Alexander Social Work Department. Thurs., April 22, 5:30PM-8:00PM.
