Need help having a conversation about racism with your kids?
Parenting from a place of fear often keeps us from having open dialogue with our children about racism. The fear of saying too much, the fear of saying the wrong thing or the fear of not knowing what to say.
Wouldn’t it be great to have support to move from that fear and begin parenting from a place of radical love?
This course is for white mothers who are ready to begin their journey as allies in the Black community (small steps at a time) and to raise antiracist children (who will be change agents in the world). This course will help you to begin to have the dialogue with your children about race and equity and what your family can do to help.
Do you find yourself thinking...
- How do I talk to my children about race while protecting their innocence?
- What do I need to know before starting a conversation with my children about racism?
- I want to support the Black community but how do I do it?
- What does raising an activist look like?
Your voice is needed and it starts at home.
The current social climate cannot be ignored.
As parents, we must be more intentional about the way we are rearing our children.
Many of you want to be allies and raise children to be compassionate, open-minded and open-hearted.
If you don’t actively engage in dialogue with your children about what those values really mean and look like in your daily lives, you leave it up to chance.
Talking to your children about race, racism, and other social issues impacting marginalized groups can be difficult.
Every successful movement had supportive allies that helped in transforming status quo. Your voice is needed and it starts right in your own homes.
Raising children to make an impact in the world while protecting them from the things that we fear, is a constant challenge.
