Social justice involves action. In our society which has historically privileged whiteness, many racist and other prejudicial ideas are widely accepted as the standard and are pervasively practiced as the norm. Because of this, allies must engage in anti-racism and take action against racist behaviors. One form of action involves parenting practices. Traci Baxley, author of Social Justice Parenting, is an expert in child development, elementary education, curriculum and instruction, diversity and inclusion, anti-bias curriculum, and social justice education. On this episode of POTC, Debbie and Traci come together to discuss the importance of Social Justice Parenting Practices.

When You Know Better, You Do Better (with Dr. Traci Baxley and Kelly Krout)
The Suburban Women Problem
On today’s episode, Rachel Vindman, Amanda Weinstein, and special guest host Malynda Hale talk about social justice parenting. They discuss how you first have to acknowledge your own inherent biases and your discomfort before you can have meaningful conversations with your kids about social justice. We hear more about Malynda’s inspiring tweet thread about interracial marriage in response to Senator Mike Braun’s comments at Judge Jackson’s hearings, and everyone expresses their disbelief and outrage over right wing hypocrisy regarding Ginni Thomas.Then Kelly Krout joins us to talk about parenting, fostering kids, politics, and more. Kelly has become a sensation on TikTok for her relatable videos about running for office in Arkansas. She’s also written children's books about the foster care system, proving once again just how important it is for kids to have books that reflect their lived experiences. Kelly is funny, energetic, wise, and an all-around delight.After that, Rachel sits down with Dr. Traci Baxley to talk about her book, Social Justice Parenting: How To Raise Compassionate, Empathetic, Justice-Minded Kids in an Unjust World. Dr. Baxley and Rachel chat about what exactly social justice parenting is, why sheltering our kids is the wrong approach, and how the only way to really get social justice parenting wrong is to never even start. Finally, Rachel, Amanda and Malynda raise a glass to family, to finding time for an at-home date night, and to meeting Dr. Fauci in this week’s “Toast to Joy.”If you’re tired of extremists banning books, you should check out Red Wine and Blue’s virtual Read-In on Thursday April 7.

212. The path to radical love, featuring Dr. Traci Baxley
As parents, we get it wrong a lot of the time. But the truth is that our kids feel perfect love simply when we show up and spend time with them, not when we know all the right answers. Being able to honestly reflect on our actions, as well as being vulnerable with our kiddos when we need to repair and apologize, are critical to creating a safe haven to raise kids who can navigate their own difficulties and range of emotions. Today Dr. Traci Baxley, the creator of Social Justice Parenting, shares her own imperfect parenting moments, how to tackle the inner mean mom who likes to guilt trip, and how to show up with radical love—especially around diversity and inclusion.
