podcast November 3, 2022

Shame has been weighing heavily on Charisse after she caught a clip from the 2021 Black Love Summit (make sure you get your tickets to our 2022 Summit right now!) where Bre discussed how shame from her childhood had affected her relationship with her partner as an adult. As parents we often use shame as a way to try to teach our children right or wrong, but does it really accomplish that? Listen in as Charisse breaks down the idea of shame, whether or not she believes we should be shaming our little ones, and what other options we have as parents to teach our children the lessons we are trying to get across instead.
