Have you ever wondered what the term “decolonize parenting” means? How is colonization still affecting us as parents, generations later? What is colonizer mentality? That’s all that we’re talking about in this fascinating episode!
In this episode Diana talks to Dr. Rocío Rosales-Meza, a Mexicana/Xicana psychologist who helps women of color reclaim their intuition and seeks to help women of color and people of color “confront oppression, & tap into intuition so they can feel whole, well, & free.”
During this conversation Diana and Rocío discuss how our parenting is affected by the ancestral traumas we carry in our DNA, and how the way we were parented affects the way we parent our children. She discusses ways that we can break the cycles of trauma, and why she believes in homeschooling and gentle parenting as ways for us to raise children that are liberated from these traumas.

Dr. Rosales-Meza also shares what allies and white people can do in order to help BIPOC (Black, Indigenous People of Color) become free of the long-lasting effects that colonization has had over generations. She invites white people to listen, learn and amplify the voices of BIPOC in this work.
