On Monday I shared with you that I would be in a conference call with other Mom Bloggers & Phylicia Rashad. Tommorrow the movie Just Wright will be in movie theaters featuring, Common, Queen Latifah, Paula Patton & Phylicia Rashad. We had the opporunity to asked her questions in relation to the upcoming movie and parenting.
Growing up The Cosby Show was the NEW Model of the African American Family. Growing up in Chicago my role model was My mom and grand mom. When the T.V. show first aired, no matter what we were doing when the show came on we dropped everything. There were so many similarities as well as differences of my own life.
Parents telling you like it T I Z (like it is)
Being threatened to Death ( I brought you in this world and I’ll take you OUT!)
Parents emphasizing to set my priorities on education (that went in one ear and out the other)
Growing up in a two parent household
Growing up with siblings
Growing up in a wealthy home
The reason I point out these similarities and differences is to show you my connection with the show. There was commonality as well as hope for my own future.
Phylicia Rashad shared some words of wisdom
