Do you have an example of having one of those difficult conversations, and how you broached them?⠀
Warner really wanted to see the film "Django Unchained," and I had concerns about the depiction of black men. I also had concerns about Quentin Tarantino’s history of gratuitous violence. He’d never seen one of his films before, and I wasn’t sure that he was ready for the violence and the depiction of black men. ⠀
But he’s 16 years old, and he wanted to see it. So I emailed him a few select reviews, and asked him to read the reviews, and [said] let’s discuss them before he saw the movie. We did that, and then he saw the movie with his grandfather—my father.⠀
They walked out with very different opinions. My father felt as though it may have been one of the worst movies he’d ever seen, and found the violence physically painful to watch, and looked away. Warner wasn’t so disturbed by the violence because he felt like it was just a movie. He understood that. He was more disturbed by being in audience that was almost entirely white and listening to them laugh at different scenes. He was much more uncomfortable with the audience’s response to what he was watching on screen. He also felt like there’s nothing wrong with seeing a revenge movie [featuring] an African-American. He had a really interesting analysis of that film from a teen’s perspective.⠀
In the end, I’m glad he saw it, but it was a really difficult conversation. —@geraldinemoriba1 (Photo credit: @papermonday)
There’s always a MESSAGE in MESS.
I love when children get dirty through play!
White shirts now brown.
Socks soaked in mud.
Faces camouflaged in rainbow colours.
Exploring their world is key to their learning.
And, sometimes that includes getting a tad bit messy. 😊
Allow your child to enjoy learning through play! It’s important to their development.
Paint...puddles...bushes...bring it on! 🙌🏽😊
We’ve been pretty much trapped in the house since we got back from our trip. If you saw our stories you know Jared and I caught a stomach bug on the way home I guess. So Saturday Hudson asked to go to the store with daddy. I used that opportunity to take some fun pics of Hayes... then...he got sick. Sooo back on quarantine. Maybe we’ll leave the house again by spring! 😒
At least we captured these cute pics first. It may have involved a phone bribe but look at that face! Those @mccoysboys shoes! That hat! I can’t even with this cuteness☺️. You can get your #mccoysboysloafers for 15% off with HUD15HAY. 😉
I recently asked what type of content people wanted to see on our page, and a number of you said "more stories about raising teenagers." With that—and our earlier post on raising Black sons—in mind, today, we're sharing moments from our conversation with journalist Geraldine Moriba (@geraldinemoriba1) on raising her son @itswarnermeadows:⠀
Raising a black son in the world can sometimes be a scary proposition. Is there anything that you do to try to prepare him for the outside world and the stereotypes he could face.⠀
When he was born, one of the first things I hung in his bedroom was a photograph of his uncle and his father on [their] graduation day. It’s poster-sized, and they’re both wearing caps and gowns; it’s just this positive image of two successful black men graduating from university on the same day. And above it I hung a plaque that says “Believe.” I also hung in his bedroom a poster of Nelson Mandela, and a placard that has his grandfather’s name—he has the same name as his paternal grandfather: it says Warner Earl Meadows Jr., M.D. I also hung in his room an image of Marcus Garvey.⠀
Over the years I’ve continued to add positive images. I do the same thing with my daughter. The obvious goal has always been to surround them with positive role models. Because I do believe it takes a village for our sons as well as our daughters, but it’s also having constant and ongoing conversations, even when those conversations are very, very difficult. —@geraldinemoriba1 (Photo credit: @papermonday)⠀
