Are you parenting from a place of fear or radical love? Does your parenting style include social justice? Do you see all children as part of a global village?

She calls us to move past parenting from a place of fear and complacency to embrace courage and radical love.” – Randee Wilding, Chief Operating Officer, Dock C. Bracy Center for Human Reconciliation
