I talk a good game about respectful parenting and child-directed learning but deep down, I'm a typical Guyanese mother. What does that mean? My friend Nyoka Acevedo and I break it down in this episode. She's a committed educator and passionate Restorative Justice advocate. And, Nyoka is a Puerto Rican mother trying to sift through a lot of historical bullshit that weighs us down. This episode is full of questions. Not a lot of answers. And, a great tip at the end about how to teach your toddler not to scream in your face when they want your attention.
- Nyoka told me about a great resource for Restorative Justice work here in Oakland! http://rjoyoakland.org/
- Another shout out to friend in my head, Akilah Richards, who's raising Free Children and discussing it on her podcast
