Atlanta, GA --  Kenneth Braswell, Atlanta-based CEO of Fathers Incorporated, has authored two children's books, Daddy, There's a Noise Outside and Daddy Can I Cry? to specifically help parents talk with their children about sensitive issues such as losing friends to gun violence, police brutality and the resulting protests that are a natural occurrence to a majority of these issues.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month and another reminder for African Americans, their mental health is in a constant state of threat. The horrific incident of Ahmaud Arbery and the trauma inflicted through the viral video on top of the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting economic downturn have negatively affected many people's mental health and created new barriers for people already suffering from mental illness. In a recent KFF poll, nearly half (45%) of adults in the United States reported that their mental health has been negatively impacted due to worry and stress over the virus.

Following the Black Lives Matter movement in 2016, parents, educators and librarians around the world have been looking for ways to talk to children about race, justice, and privilege.

Braswell explains, "Over the past few years, it is sadly evident we still have a great deal of work to do to heal racial issues in our society. As a parent, I believe it is critical to be prepared to address any questions or concerns children may have about things they see in the media or their communities. This can be done by educating ourselves on the issues and ensuring we can use quality resources and books like Daddy, There's a Noise Outside and Daddy Can I Cry? to teach and understand the current and historic justice debates and protests."

Both books are available on Amazon or can be purchased directly from the website at

Kenneth Braswell is available for interviews discussing this subject matter and recently release a COV19-19 coparenting resource guide offering tips and strategies to parent during a crisis.
