Raising African Children in the Diaspora.

Raising black African children in Diaspora can be quite challenging to immigrant parents. Here’s an interesting paper on the subject. Parenthood in itself is tough enough let alone doing it in a new country where the host culture is different in many aspects to those of your home country. You don’t have to agree with all the conclusions in the paper but I found it very informative. It is written by Vivian Yenika-Agbaw, Ph.D.  The paper can be read here http://www.jpanafrican.com/docs/vol3no4/3.4AfricanChildRearing.pdf  .
