OUR MISSION

Conscious Parenting Time is about liberating black children from their parents’ pain, this country’s racism, and dysfunctional cultural norms. It is about helping parents become conscious of their triggers, mindset, and childhood traumas so they don’t repeat the past. It is about doing the work it takes to parent from a place of peace and intention and discipline our children with respect. CP Time will challenge long-held beliefs about physically punishing children. We’ll unpack how slavery, white supremacy has infiltrated the black family. We’ll explore toxic masculinity, the strong black woman trope, and other topics that plague our community. But mostly, we will give parents the tools and strategies they need to implement conscious parenting as a lifestyle.  With suicide rates of black children climbing and the constant reminders that black lives do not matter, we need to ensure our children feel secure and safe, but also empowered and confident. Advocates for positive, conscious parenting in the black community are few and far between. CP Time will be a catalyst for change and reform, as we dare to imagine what it means to raise intellectually, spiritually, and socially free black children.

 ONE MESSAGE, TWO UNIQUE PERSPECTIVES 

 We are two determined moms, passionate about teaching the art of conscious parenting, all while juggling work and family and trying to remain sane.  We provide a perspective that many mommy and parenting blogs do not have - that of black conscious/positive parents, one a single, older mom, and the other married with children.  Our goal is to be THE place for black parents that best understands and addresses the complexities, nuances, joys, and magic of raising the next generation of emotionally-well men and women

Militant single mama on a mission to bring Conscious Parenting
to the masses

At 37, I was blessed with my first child after years of believing I would never have children.  I'm a single mom, so things are a tad hectic over here as I juggle momming, my home-based business, and taking care of myself.  Conscious parenting is close to my heart, as I know what it feels like to grow up without a voice and with violence as a consequence.  Raising a black child in a world filled with white supremacy seems insurmountable at times, but I firmly believe that conscious parenting is activism against racism.  I'm raising a carefree child to be her authentic selves, unafraid to use her voice to stand up to oppression, with unshakeable confidence and self-love.  And I want to help teach other parents to do the same.  I hope you join me in changing the world, by breaking generational narratives, one child at a time.

Crystal Stampley

Aspiring minimalist & married mama of three, passionate about demystifying Conscious Parenting

From the moment my husband and I found out we were expecting, I knew I wanted to approach this new stage of life on my {our} terms. We wanted to be intentional about parenting, so I researched everything and we committed to focusing only on the things that aligned with our parenting goals. This led us to make choices that went against society's norms, but felt natural for us. I have relied on Conscious Parenting through every stage of motherhood, including battling {and winning against} postpartum depression. I am immensely passionate about demystifying Conscious Parenting, raising our collective self-awareness, and making this world one where all children {yes, even black children} are empowered and encouraged to thrive as their authentic selves.
