I am incredibly proud to have found the chutzpuh to write about this tricky topic on my blog tour. Shay at Black Girl in Maine was the inspiration for this post–oh and a small little racist comment my four-year-old made.

It is so important to think about thorny areas in our culture ahead of time–know that they will come up and actually prepare for them. . At some point your child will notice differences, make judgments, and say things that shock you. Be ready!
