No one ever told me that speaking up was the access to power. I was told that there is a time and a place for everything. That there are certain places where I could say certain things, and certain people I could say certain things around. This creates a sense of confusion for children who are seeking to find their own voice. I challenge parents out there to speak ONE (1) truth. To create a space where their child feels free to just BE. Do not constrain them. Let them learn. Let them live. Let them be.
