Hi Danielle....My son is also multi-racial. We have been fortunate...Not many teasing's yet. A couple of times, he was told that something was wrong with him because his mom is white and his dad is black. He was quick to tell the kid that his dad is not black, he is brown, and there is nothing wrong with that. For us, giving him a sense of who he is in this world, and how special he is has made the difference. I have had to contain my own anger at times, and my son has always handled it well...I'm sure it will become more challenging as he gets older. Celebrate the differences in your family and I am sure she will make the best choices!

Let your child come to you about it. As long as your child is confident in who they are and where they come from, they will figure it out on their own. We as parents just need to be there for support. Here is an example. My cousin's 1st day at jr High this white kid came up to him and said " hey Nigga" my cousin turned around with a grin on his face and said" no, its Nichalous what your name?" He is now 45 yrs old and they are still best friends till this day.

Your understanding, patience and reassurance that a lot of people are ignorant about interracial relationships and biracial children and afraid to learn them that they would rather ridicule than associate with the likes of us. That she is luckier than most to have best of both worlds, and to always hold her head high and be proud of who she is. My children know who they are, and they are reassured all the time that they are loved and have our support, because in the long run, our love and reassurance will give them that self-assurance and confidence that they will need.
