It can turn into any race at any moment? Doesn't need a disguise then... I'd raise it well. I'd teach it backflips and about stacking precious metals and generating wealth. I'd teach it how to shoot the AR-15 (once I knew it was on my team and responsible enough to use it).
I'd name it & feed it and teach it to become a bodybuilder (once I knew what kind of diet worked best for it's biological systems).
I'd teach it how to garden, grow and harvest various crops, and about various household chores. I'd teach it to get it's oil changed as is recommended every couple thousand miles, and I'd teach it to drive a stick shift.
Its name would be whatever he wanted it to be, I would honor its wishes. I would also want to teach it how to play poker and how to spar with me. And beer pong, fishing, hiking, and how break dance.

I would just join a circus and raise him to make me mucho dinero $$$ .
"hurry hurry hurry!! Step right up!! $1 to see your very first alien encounter! Be the only one in your family that can say you survived a true alien experiece!!"
And then I would sell shirts for ten dollars that say
"I survived an alien encounter and all I got was this lousy T-Shirt"
yea, but I would teach it to memorize the Bill of Rights, so I can claim the most Patriotic alien in Americaa.

I would raise it exactly the same as I raised the daughter I gave birth to -
Nurturing the alien baby with all my love, and raising it with firm but loving guidance as to proper behavior, caring for others, and respect for authority...
...I would teach that every 'person' (whether human or 'other') should be treated with kindness -
- and that people's differences should be seen as 'attributes of individuality' to be appreciated (rather than as 'foreignness' to be reviled)..
I would do my best to gain an understanding of fundamental differences between the 'alien' child's inherent psychological needs and adjust my parental style as best I could determine would achieve the goals above while honoring those inherent differentials..
And I would hope and pray that I would be successful in raising this 'alien' baby into an adult who would embody such a caring psychological balance between the 'human' and 'alien' psyches, that he/she/it would be able to stand as 'go between' and provide for understanding between humankind and the alien 'progenitors' of the child..

Just curious, suppose you found an alien baby how would you raise it.
Would you raise the baby as you were raised?
What political views would you teach it?
What religion would you raise your alien baby in?
So many questions to ask…by the way, the only gift your alien baby has, is that it can turn to any race at any given moment.
It eats whatever you feed it, it does whatever you say how would you raise this baby?
