The Multicultural Parenting thread in parenting is barely active, but there are so things I would love to discuss with other mommies who have multicultural children. Wondering if there are any of you out there who feel the same. I guess I should introduce us. My husband and I both have pretty diverse gene pools. I am mostly European (many nationalities- some mysteries) but look most like the Southern European parts (revealing the mix with North Africa). My husband is African American and Eastern European Jewish (with a wee bit of Native American). We both get mistaken for many different things. We have one 6 year old DD and are expecting another DD in June. Our older daughter is starting to get to the part of her schooling when race and ethnicity are becoming issues that kids discuss. Although we are in the SF bay, were there are a good number of multicultural families, we still struggle with how to raise our daughters to be prepared for negativity that they may encounter, but not to expect it. On the lighter side- we are really curious, with the diversity of our possibilities, how much our new DD will look like our six year old. Would love to have others to talk to.
