  • Is it possible to decolonize parenting by “fighting the system”? In this episode of Parenting Decolonized, I welcome Sundiata Soon-Jahta, an Unschooler, Systems Thinker, Authentic Dialogue Facilitator, Entrepreneur, and Anti-Oppression Educator, Content Creator, & Organizer. Tune in to learn how systems thinking can help us understand the root cause of colonization and how to dismantle systems of oppression.

    In this episode, we talk about…
    Defining systems thinking, specifically in the context of decolonization.
    Why we shouldn’t be “fighting the system” & What you should do instead.
    How various systems, like patriarchy and white supremacy, were created & How they continue to evolve and feed one another.
    Conscious parenting and unschooling as an act of social justice and decolonization.
    Resources for learning more about systems thinking.
    ….and more!
