I’m excited to announce that the first Raising an Advocate course is now available for pre-order. A year and a half ago, I published a call to action post on Mamademics, entitled “Why White Moms Need To Care About Murdered Black Children.” The post quickly went viral and before I knew it moms all over the country were asking me for advice about having the hard conversations with their children. Those conversations inspired me to create a blog series entitled, Raising an Advocate, and an idea for an online course was born. This is the first course in the series and I promise it won’t take me a year and a half to create the rest.
RaA 101: Exposing the Three Ps – Privilege, Prejudice, and Pride is a three-week online course that will push you past your comfort zone while helping you confront what’s holding you back from having the hard conversations around social justice issues. This course combines a traditional online classroom with weekly webinars that allow you to ask questions and participate in a discussion with your peers. Need more information?
Who Should Take This Course?
This course is ideal for parents, grandparents, teachers and/or anyone involved in the nurturing of young children, adolescents, and teenagers. I first used many of these theories while teaching on the collegiate level, but now incorporate them into my parenting of a preschooler.
