“Fair warning: This episode may really make you miss your IRL get togethers with your favorite mom friends, because that is exactly what this conversation with Dr. Janice Johnson Dias feels like. We knew that talking to Janice would be helpful, but to be honest, we had no idea it be so funny, so honest, so inspiring, and just so nourishing!
While you may know her best as mom of Marley Dias, the teen founder of #1000BlackGirlBooks, Janice is pretty incredible in her own right, and is the author of the brand new Parent Like It Matters: How to Raise Joyful, Change-Making Girls,which is just out today. Find it from our affiliates Amazon, Indiebound, or your local bookseller.
You’re going to want to grab a copy for sure.
