|What Do Black Parents Need?|
On both sides of the Atlantic, we are facing some of the same challenges. This is why I wrote Success Strategies for Black People. Our communities are dealing with a lot iof challenges, and there is a lot more to say about this. I'll be blogging about this some more.
I was listening to Rev Up with Rev Alethea yesterday - her interview with Mr. X, a former prisoner. Even though I am not a Christian, I found her approach very inspiring - and it occurred to me that, many times, parents don't realise how much impact their words have. When they say something hurtful, they don't realise how much it hurts. If someone else said the same thing, it would not be nearly so painful.
But actually, most of us do not realise the impact of our words and actions most of the time. And our words and actions have long-term consquences.
