Furthermore, not only do we value supporting parents on this journey, we always want parents to know that your kids are welcome to listen right along with you. Katriel is an 8-year-old who loves being homeschooled. Listen to her share with our audience about how she helps her siblings and learns at the same time. (She is one of 6 siblings, you can hear her mom on our last podcast Episode 29)
Grown Folks Talk, Conscious Parenting Defined (6:25)
During Episode 30, we spoke with Yolanda Williams about what conscious parenting is all about. Yolanda is a Certified Positive Discipline Coach and host of the podcast Parenting Decolonized, a show that unpacks how colonization has impacted the black family and teaches parents how to raise liberated black children without breaking their spirits. When she’s not advocating for the safety and liberation of black children from white supremacy and parental oppression, she’s chasing her toddler around the house and trying to remain sane.
