Children have the worst timing. They ask the most awkward questions at the most awkward times, and when those questions are about race, white parents often fumble through their answers. In one intriguing podcast, Hillary Frank of The Longest Shortest Time interviews child development expert Brigitte Vittrup on her research into racial socialization. Vittrup, a white parent of biracial children herself, offers clear and concise advice which almost all white parents can incorporate into their parenting.
