Every weekday morning at 10 a.m., I bring you a daily affirmation from Black Pearls for Parents, the book by author Eric V. Copage. They are inspirational thoughts, practical advice and pearls of wisdom specifically designed for African-American parents.

This morning’s entry was “Heritage”. On this day, take five minutes to help your child focus on the joy and blessings of being of African heritage. You might share with them the rich designs of kente cloth and discuss their meanings, or just take a short walk with them, look at the clouds and flowers and let them know there is a special joy in being alive.
