Raising biracial children in the modern world is easier than its ever been

Most parents of biracial children usually wonder how it will be like, raising their children. How do you ensure that your child gets the best of both worlds? How do you make sure that your child is confident about his mixed identity?

To be honest, these are things that really worried me when I and my white husband got pregnant. And my biggest worry was whether my child would fit in with peers of both races.

Now, this was all because of the stories I used to hear growing up. Especially about hoe biracial kids were being treated by others. Some were being told they weren’t black enough. Or weren’t Asian enough. Plus we have heard stories of biracial kids who people went to schools that were predominantly of one race.

Luckily things have really changed today. For several reasons, it has become much easier for interracial couples to raise their mixed children.

Reasons why raising biracial children is easier today!

1. There has been a huge rise in interracial relationships over the years. And because of this, people are becoming more accepting of interracial couples. There are more interracial marriages, hence the number of mixed race babies are being born and raised today. So people don’t really see them as strange as they used to before.

3. The inclusion of the mixed category in the census has also helped a lot dealing with the identity crisis that most mixed-race individuals used to have. Before, they used to be asked to choose one race. These days at least mixed race is now a thing. So choose a school which embraces diversity.

4. The internet has got a lot of information and tips on how to raise biracial children. So, whenever in doubt you will always find something that will assist you.

In order to succeed, as parents, you need to allow your kids to talk about skin color. Explain to them about their identity and teach them how to embrace both or all cultures of who they are.

Finding your soulmate is not everything. Keeping a healthy relationship is

How can one find love and maintain a healthy relationship?

I know quite a number of people who will swear that they have fallen in love more than once. For many people, it always happens a bit too quickly. And within a short period of time, the love fades and the relationship ends.

But was it really love? Did you give the relationship a fighting chance?

Finding love can be easy. However, it’s not important if you cant building and maintaining that love.

Here are a few tips you can implement in order to keep a long-lasting relationship with your soulmate.

1. Maintain open communication

Speak up! If something is bothering you, bring it up in a loving a respectful manner. Speaking is not the only way. You should also be able to listen to what your partner is telling you.

Communication is key. If you maintain honest and safe communication environment, you will be in a better position to understand each other’s needs.

2. Compromise

You will not always agree on everything. Listen to your partner and find healthy ways to solve your problems. Find a fighting style that works for both of you. Yelling will not solve anything,

Look at things you can agree on in the argument and focus on building on that.

3. An interesting relationship is a healthy relationship

People say sex isn’t important in a relationship. I tend to disagree. Make an effort as a couple to make things interesting in the bedroom. Have date nights. Go dancing. Go for weekend getaways. Watch porn together.

 

Intimacy is key. Even if you are too busy, then schedule it! Physical needs as important as the emotional ones.

4. Respect your soulmate.

Understand and respect your partner’s wishes, feelings, and privacy.  When you do, they will also reciprocate. Respect each other’s likes and needs.

Give each other some space to be and grow as an individual. As you do this, set boundaries that work for both of you and what makes the two of you comfortable.

Privacy is important. Don’t go snooping on their phones. Trust each other enough to keep some parts of your relationship private, such as social media passwords.

One of the most important thing in a great relationship is to respect each other’s privacy.

Much as the above is not exhaustive, those are some of the tips that can really assist you in building a lasting and healthy relationship.
