SEASON 2! All is fair in love

What are we unconsciously teaching our children about what it means to be in love? Is love pain? Ownership? Anger? Sadness? What are they picking up from observing our relationships? Even if they are not speaking about it, they are absorbing everything. Oftentimes, children appear silent but have so many thoughts racing through their minds. How do we initiate honest conversations with our children about these love & loss, organically?See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

“You’re not supposed to curse, Mom!”

How can our focus on language--and how it is spoken--both empower and oppress our children? “We die. That may be the meaning of life. But we do language. That may be the measure of our lives.” — Toni Morrison Are we subconsciously using language (and our expression of it) to submit to white supremacy? For our people, language is community. But our diction also affects how we are viewed by greater society. So, how do we navigate discussing this complex topic with our children? Our guests--writers Bassey Ikpi, Deesha Philyaw & Issa Mas--join Noleca to discuss!See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

“I rode down the hill anyway. No hands.” (Pt. 1)

So many parenting anxieties are based in the need for safety. Parents want to keep their children safe. And safety is on the path the freedom. But what cultural sacrifices are we willing to make in the name of “safety?” And are they really worth it in the end? Join our host, Noleca, and multi-genre writer, performance artist, educator and mother of 2, Anastacia-Renee, as they discuss the very rational anxieties that come along with parenting free black children and how internalized oppression makes us a key boundary to their freedom. Find out more about Anastacia-Renee here: https://www.anastacia-renee.com/See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
