20. Decolonized Parenting with Yolanda Williams

Our Wildest Dreams by Brittany Pollard

09-05-2020 • 1 hr 8 mins

On today’s show I have the lovely Yolanda Williams and we spoke about conscious parenting for Black parents. Which I think is so important and needed because many of us are in a space of wanting to break generational trauma and change generational narratives. We spoke about raising liberated leaders, effective communicators, parenting from a place of love instead of fear, releasing control, actively listening to your child and so much more!

About Yolanda Williams

Yolanda Williams 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.

In this episode Yolanda talks about:

  • How to raise liberated Black children
  • How to teach your child to be an effective communicator and advocate for themselves
  • Parenting from a place of love and nourishment instead of fear
  • How children are mirrors and grow up to become what was modeled
  • Why listening to your child is one of the most important things you can do
