I am struggling to know how to handle my four year old daughters identity crisis. She has recently started telling me that she doesn't like her brown skin, and that she wants to have white skin like mommy. We do not ever speak like this and I have no idea why she feels this way. We (my husband and I) are always telling her that she is beautiful inside and out, but that obviously isn't connecting with her. I am not with her father who is also biracial (black and white), and I have married a white man. I am so scared that when he and I have a child, she will become even more troubled by this. Please help me with this issue, especially if anyone has faced this before! I do thank you all in advance for sharing.
