Yesterday was one of those intense learning moments in our @HomeCrazzyHome. @PanKwake is on an almost ‘normal’ sleep schedule that meant all three of us were up and active at the same time.
It all began when we ended up in the family room all together. In case you haven’t figured it out yet, @PanKwake is mixed race and multi-cultural (Black British, Bajian, American and living in Wales). As I have begun to unpack my white privilege and become active in anti-racism, I question how well I am enabling her appreciation of what it means to be black. What ensued was a two-hour discussion of those issues that bounced all over the place.
@PanKwake had taken another on-line personality quiz which said she was a ‘campaigner’ or an advocate. As always that a surprisingly accurate assessment of her. And a role that I can see her growing into more and more. She is not only multi-racial, #ActuallyAutistic, a woman, and an Aro-Ace (Aromantic/Asexual). That’s loads to campaign and advocate for.
But our discussion led me to do something I rarely do…interfer with her self-directed learning. That’s isn’t as intrusive as it sounds. But because of her dyslexia, finding appropriate videos on YouTube can be a bit challenging. So I took it upon myself to search for ones that I know will meet her learning style (animated shorts). I found several good resources.
I thought I’d share those with you as well as her.
I also found bits and pieces on several other sites, including:
I’m sure those will give us loads more to talk about. The next the stars align and magic happens in our @HomeCrazzyHome.
