A guide for families of all backgrounds to celebrate cultural heritage and embrace inclusivity in the home and beyond.

Gone are the days when socially conscious parents feel comfortable teaching their children to merely tolerate others. Instead, they are looking for a way to authentically embrace the fullness of their diverse communities. A Place to Belong offers a path forward for families to honor their cultural heritage and champion diversity in the context of daily family life by:
 
   Fostering open dialogue around discrimination, race, gender, disability, and class
   Teaching “hard history” in an age-appropriate way
   Curating a diverse selection of books and media choices in which children see themselves and people who are different
   Celebrating cultural heritage through art, music, and poetry
   Modeling activism and engaging in community service projects as a family
 
Amber O’Neal Johnston, a homeschooling mother of four, shows parents of all backgrounds how to create a home environment where children feel secure in their own personhood and culture, enabling them to better understand and appreciate people who are racially and culturally different. A Place to Belong gives parents the tools to empower children to embrace their unique identities while feeling beautifully tethered to their global community.
"Amber O’Neal Johnston has written a deeply thoughtful book that will provoke all who read it to broaden their view of people in their personal context and in the beauty of their own unique lives and cultures. A great read indeed!"
