021: Guided By the Golden Rule with Rachel
Progress can’t happen if we aren’t putting in the work and taking action to make a change. In this episode, I was joined by Rachel Wade. Rachel is the brilliant woman behind Guided By the Golden Rule. I first discovered Rachel when I read her Scary Mommy article earlier this year.
In this episode, I had the pleasure of talking to her about how we can teach our white children about race. We talk about why this is necessary and how you can infuse black stories into your child’s life early on.
What’s in this episode:
The rebirth process I went through to step into my new self
Why Rachel believes in sharing her experiences
Rachels reasoning behind starting this dialogue about race
How a conversation with a friend sparked her article for Scary Mommy
Why you need to teach your white children about race
How to expose your white children to black stories
Why you have to apologize even if you didn’t know it was inappropriate
Why everyone making incremental, positive changes is needed
