About Raising Biracial Babies
Raising mixed kids comes with many challenges.
You feel overwhelmed thinking about how to parent your kids because you can’t relate exactly to their life experiences.
You’re confused about how to care for mixed hair, and you don’t know which products to use, or how to do protective hairstyles.
You’re worried your kids will be bullied and people will make racial comments just because they look different.
You want to support your children’s biracial identity, but you’re not sure how.
I believe you can raise mixed kids who feel empowered by their unique heritage.

When I first found out I was pregnant with my first child, I knew my parenting experience would be different than most of the people I knew.
My child was biracial and I knew she’d be dealing with racial comments and even bullying from other kids in school because she looked different.
After I had her, I felt scared and overwhelmed. What did I know about raising a confident mixed child? I didn’t know first hand what she would experience so how could I prepare her for a world that very well may not accept her because of what she looks like?
And how would I learn to take care of her hair? As for styling her hair, it felt impossible and overwhelming to even contemplate trying to put it in a protective hairstyle!
After talking about these issues with my husband and other people of color plus a lot of my own trial and error, I learned about everything from mixed hair care so my children would grow up feeling proud of their natural hair, to including more diversity into their everyday lives, and more.
I can help you accomplish this too!

“Wow. Thank you so much! You have no idea how helpful this is! My kiddo has the most amazing, beautiful hair but she’s nearly 10 and it’s getting a little coarse and she is comparing herself to her classmates and not loving her hair. Puberty and then on top of it starting to hate her hair? NO THANKS! Your advice is going to get her back to loving her amazing hair. Thanks so much!!!!” – Jennifer
