I don't like my skin color!!!
“I don’t like my skin. It’s too dark.”
Those were the words of a four-year-old black kid who has been adopted by a white parents. Imagine the shock and excruciating pain the mother felt when she was bombarded with the question!
“Well I don’t like brown skin. I don’t want it,” he continued.

What are you looking for?
“What kind of skin do you want?” the mother asked.
To which he answered: “Skin like yours.”
No parent would ever want their kids to feel this way. And most parents of mixed race kids and interracial adoptions dread tackling the issues of color. But the way you answer this question, no matter how young the children are, will determine how they deal with the identity issue for the rest of their lives.
What would you do when you realize your kid is not comfortable in his or her own skin? How would you deal with this painful question of confusion?
