Raising Conscious Children & Combating Harmful Mental Health Norms with Olaolu Ogunyemi

Happy Thursday folks! I was blessed to have the opportunity to be honest and transparent on the Parenting Decolonized Podcast! I am extremely grateful that Yolanda Williams shared her platform with me to talk about the importance of discussing mental health in the black community and with our kids. I shed light on how patriarchy and “masculinity” are actually harming men, ways to make children more resilient in the face of racism and the everyday pressures of life, and how to change unhealthy behavior patterns to become a more conscious parent. I also give great advice for parents who are struggling with mental illness. These are the conversations we need to have!
