What started out as a light-hearted chat about Beth and Emily's differing feeding choices turned into a moving -- and at times surprising -- discussion with other mothers about the pressures women encounter when it comes to feeding journeys during the baby stage.
At the tender ages of one and two, my husband and I added books to our children's book collection that depicted Black boys and girls on cover, because reading is fundamental at this age. It is also important to see and identify with the images on the page.
In this episode, we hear from Stephanie, who is an accomplished professional, community supporter, and a mother of two. She is also a Black woman.
There will come a time when my daughter is pulled over by the police and yours is in the passenger side. I'll need your child to know that mine doesn't have the luxury of arguing with the police, her hands need to be seen at all times, and when she goes to reach for her ID or insurance card, she has to let the officer know her next moves.
Join Beth and Emily -- wherever you are on this road and where they are -- to journey together . . . and to commit to learn more about how to dismantle racism in and through our parenting.
