Join us on the first Tuesday of every month for Caribbean Mom Chats where we discuss all kinds of fun parenting topics coming from a Caribbean point of view!
Created by Eva, from Socamom.com, we get to together and stream our conversation LIVE on youtube so you can see everything as it happens! The conversation is also very live and hot on twitter and facebook too, you can follow the hashtag #caribbeanmomchat or #mamalime for all the fun!
We all have children of all ages from preschoolers to teens, so every mom can relate!
Check out my amazing fellow panelists:
Eva Greene Wilson aka “SocaMom” is the editor of SocaMom.com and Author of Anancy’s Family Reunion. Her blog posts have been featured on BlogHer.com, and republished in b3 Caribbean Magazine (print and online) and Outlish Magazine (online). She has interviewed soca artists Bunji Garlin and Fay-Ann Lyons, former Essence Editor in chief Constance White, fashion trailblazer Anya Ayoung-Chee, Jamaican TV personality and beauty queen, Kamila McDonald Alcock, Trinidadian stage and screen actress Hazelle Goodman, and other leaders in the Caribbean community about connecting children to Caribbean culture and balancing motherhood, higher education, and career. She was most recently honored with two Black Weblog Awards – Best New Blog and Best Parenting Blog.
Pascalle Onika Goddard aka “Onika Pascal” is a career savvy supermom-certified Sagittarian-professional introvert-with a funny bone, born in Trinidad, raised in Brooklyn, NY and now residing in Maryland with her 16 year old son. She completed her Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology at Medgar Evers College and her Masters of Professional Studies at The George Washington University. In 2008 she self-published a book of poetry entitled,“Collections of a See Through Soul – Portraits,” written under the pen name Onika Pascal. Shortly after, in 2009, she released a second volume of poetry titled,“Collections of a See Through Soul – Bardvillian Symphonies”. She has contributed to Outlish Magazine (online) and eWoman Magazine (online). She hopes to release more literary works in the future.
Alysia Simone is the founding editor of RewindAndComeAgain.com an online exploration of the Caribbean-American experience. She is also project manger forWitness Project, an arts based youth initiative that is working to change the culture of violence in Guyana, South America – but her most important role is that of mom. Addressing a roomful of poker-faced Caribbean ministers is a walk in the park compared to the work of raising her two amazingly intelligent yet “headbangingly” frustrating teenage boys in their home in Brooklyn, New York.
Aren’t they awesome?!
February’s Discussion – Music
In February we discussed Music! This was so much fun for me (you MAY or may NOT see me dance in this video!) We discussed lots of fun things like what WE used to listen to and what type of music we let our kids listen to! It’s a great conversation, check it out here!
March’s Topic – Behavior
In March we had a lively chat on behavior including the types of punishments we got, the types of techniques we use now to manage behavior and parenting and managing children’s behavior in the social media arena! It was a really great chat. Check it out!
