Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Their 20 years of counseling parents and children, Johnson and Stanford offer a developmental program that interconnects five key disciplines specifically targeted at the challenges likely to face African American children. The early chapters explore each of the disciplines: traditional (minding parents); racial (negotiating realities of race); emotional (resisting peer pressure and temptations); practical (strength to excel in academics and career); and mind-body (maintaining physical, mental, and spiritual health). Using vignettes and case studies, Johnson and Stanford offers suggestions on instilling the disciplines in children and dealing with a range of issues, from the standard talk about sex and substance abuse to the more race-specific issues of combating the often low expectations of some teachers and school systems and peer pressure that equates cool with indifference about school. Other chapters examine the process of selecting the best college and advising youth on career and money concerns. This informative book also includes an extensive list of resources. Vanessa Bush

From the Inside Flap

The result of more than twenty years' collaborative work focusing on the heart of successful parenting, the acclaimed five disciplines program developed by Drs. Robert L. Johnson and Paulette Stanford has helped thousands of African-American children and their parents cope with the myriad of social challenges they confront each day. Now making this special prescription available to all parents, Strength for Their Journey offers insight into five interconnected areas:

? Traditional Discipline: The Strength to Embrace Parental Boundaries

? Racial Discipline: The Strength to Negotiate the Realities of Being a Racial Minority

? Emotional Discipline: The Strength to Resist Negative Peer Pressure and Temptation

? Practical Discipline: The Strength to Excel in School, Career, and Financial Pursuits

? Mind-Body Discipline: The Strength to Maintain Positive Physical, Mental, and Spiritual Health

In a culture that often grants fewer safety nets to nonwhite children, Strength for Their Journey is a crucial book that African-American parents can turn to again and again, paving a path of confidence and joy for future generations.
