Multiracial Parents

How multiracial parents racially identify their children on official forms does not tell us how they raise their children in the context of family life. Do multiracial parents have particular ways of steering their children toward racial awareness? How do they address cultural transmission? In this chapter, I examine four ways in which multiracial people bring up their children and why particular parents are drawn to specific modes of socialization. In the process I also consider the importance of generational change and how participants’ experiences of their own upbringings and childhoods can influence their thinking and parenting practices in relation to their children.
