Are you ready to empower your multiracial child to have a positive self-identity and love their unique heritage
despite the challenges of living in a racially divided world?
Does any of this sound familiar?
You've given your child the gift of private school, tutors & and safe neigborhood, but they lack diversity.
You can't quite figure out your child's curly hair routine. You constantly fight dryness, frizz and tangles.
Your child comes home from school and complains they were teased because of their textured hair and you're worried it will affect their self-confidence.
You struggle to talk with your kids about race. It is uncomfortable and you aren't sure the right words to use.
You are afraid they won't know the other half of their culture.
You are fearful of the world in which we live and think the worst case scenario if your child is in the wrong place at the wrong time.
You lose sleep worrying about your child's future, knowing he/she does not have equal privileges in our society.
"Studies illustrate a group of people who struggle with questions of identity and where to fit in, often feeling external pressures to “choose” a side. There’s evidence that mixed-race people have higher rates of mental health issues and substance abuse, too.”

Hey, exhausted friend, I hear you.
- You've read blogs and eBooks on how to raise a multiracial child, but you feel more confused than ever, trying to go from how to moisture curls to build self-worth in a child of more than one ethnicity, with no one to help you on the journey.
- You've listened to your family members that make racist remarks and you know the negative effects it will have on your child.
- You wonder if you are doing everything you can to fully support your child's mixed race identity.
- You wish someone would just take you by the hand and guide you through each step in order, and you had a way you could just ask questions when you need to.
"Mixed individuals often face similar racial traumas as their monoracial counterparts but lack the community and support to process it. The ways in which mental health affects the Mixed community has yet to be properly researched and understood. This journey is unique and filled with nuance. Embracing duality is not easy. The resulting wounds are oftentimes invalidated, misunderstood, and ignored, leaving us with very few resources to assist in authentic healing.”

"Never underestimate your power as a parent to make your child feel protected and validated!”
- Dr. Jenn Noble, Psychologist for Mixed Race Teens
Imagine taking 9 months to implement a doable plan to nurture your multiracial child successfully and it lasting a lifetime, to be passed down generation to generation....
- Having a holistic approach to raising a mixed kid in a world that is unjust because of color.
- What it will feel like when you no longer fear your child walking out the door.
- Picture having the ability to fully prepare them for the world and ensure their success.
- What would it feel like to know with confidence that when your child leaves the nest, you've already applied and practiced the right methods for navigating any discriminatory situations that could negatively impact their life.
I have no doubt you're ready to do anything it takes to protect your multiracial child and ensure they achieve the life you desire for them and they deserve. One full of equal opportunities, fair treatment and no judgement. If you don’t have a plan to follow, guidance and support, it can be easy to make some critical mistakes and you won't realize until it's too late to know if you are making the right decisions.
You're asking yourself questions like...
- How can I possibly ensure my child's well being, when mental health is such problem for teenage and adult mixed race children?
- How do I recognize the cause of my child acting out from just being a typcial kid to it being related to 'mixed kid problems'?
- How important is my child's hair to their culture when it's not something I was raised to know?
- Not if, but when something catches me off guard, how can I best respond so my child comes first?
- How can I provide diversity when I don't have an option to move and the school is not supportive?
These questions are EXACTLY why we created:

“I’m a single mom raising my 6 year old biracial son in a predominantly white community. Sometimes I feel clueless. THANK YOU for sharing your stories and knowledge!” - Molly
“Wow. Thank you so much! You have no idea how helpful this is! My kiddo has the most amazing, beautiful hair but she’s nearly 10 and it’s getting a little coarse and she is comparing herself to her classmates and not loving her hair. Puberty and then on top of it starting to hate her hair? NO THANKS! Your advice is going to get her back to loving her amazing hair. Thanks so much!!!!”

"Such discrimination is, of course, confusing and frustrating, and has been linked to depression, low self-esteem, and lack of social connectedness"
- (Salahuddin & O’Brien, 2011).
Let's break down what's included:
Phase 1: Accept
We must learn how to accept our history and be honest about our privilege in order to build a successful life for our children who will never have the same advantages in this world.
- Accept the racist society that we cannot change.
- Accept that there are habits and thoughts that we need to unlearn.
- Accept that our child is a different skin color than us and the world sees that.
- Accept that your child's beautiful multi-textured hair is unique and can easily be managed with the right methods.
- Implement real-life tactics that help us to make these changes.
Phase 2: Align
Become knowledgeable about what your child will experience as a human from more than one culture. Understand how stereotypes, health disparities, and identity lines up with your multiracial child’s life.
- Help your child embrace their identity through activities where they can learn their culture, family traditions, and heritage.
- Learn the health concerns that can be life threatening to your child's ethnic background.
- See how stereotypes will negative effect your child's mental health and what you can do to make them resilient in this journey.
Phase 3: Apply
We must apply daily activities into our lives that are intentional and specifically tailored to meet the needs of our multiracial children.
- Through internal work taught in this program, you will have the proven methods to ensure your child is becoming confident and feels seen and heard.
- By applying our intentional methods, you will see improvements within 30 days of this program.

“Elizabeth and Christina are THE BEST! What I enjoyed most about working with them is their genuine openness and willingness to help in any way they can. I don’t know what I would do without them. They are so knowledgeable and make the classes so inviting and comfortable. I’m truly grateful to both of them.”
You can do this program from anywhere in the world, and on your schedule.

How long does it take to complete the program?
The honest answer is, it depends on you and your current situation. Most of our students are able to finish EEA in 6 months.
Others might take a few extra months to complete EEA. There is no rush and no right or wrong amount of time, because we know you are busy parents and have worked in extra months to ensure your success. Remember, this isn't a "quick fix" by any means.
We recommend you set aside 2-4 hours per week to go through the program and implement the assignments.
