I hate when I see videos of black mothers yelling, beating, & cursing at their kids and everyone commenting “Good parenting” and approving such behavior. Black mothers have this stigma that we’re mean, too hard, & rough with our kids. These rough aggressive styles of parenting ruin black children more times than not I know bc I’m a victim of such parenting. Stop that BS myth that you need to be hard on your kids bc the world will. Be gentle, patient, & more affectionate with black children. Whenever I take my daughter to mommy & me classes I get extra stares bc black mothers are looked at as they mean figures rather than nurturing or gentle.
