In this episode, I’m pushing you a bit. Maybe more than a bit. The invitation here is one of accountability and self-inquiry, something I think is vital for us to move from talking to changing. For sure, dialogue is a powerful and perhaps a necessary catalyst for change and movement. But we can’t stop there. So as you listen and you feel moved and motivated by what you hear from the folks who make time to share with us on this podcast: ask yourself this question:
How am I participating in my own oppression and in the oppression of children, and what can I do toward a different experience.

In this approach, the goal is to integrate social justice and liberatory practices into our daily interactions with youth, and particularly to engage in and support the push back against normalized, oppressive parenting.
