Black Millennial parents are breaking the cycle of intergenerational trauma to leave behind a legacy of “generational healing and personal growth.”

Jan 27 2022

Black Millennial parents are breaking the cycle of intergenerational trauma to leave behind a legacy of “generational healing and personal growth.” Intergenerational trauma is “the passing down of traumatic events and memories to later generations” and can manifest into poor mental health outcomes. Slavery in the U.S. and the continued racial trauma are some of the examples of generational trauma that have “marked the lives and legacies of Black families.” But Black Millennial parents are determined to end the cycle of trauma and usher in “a new era of parenting.” Black communities are having “visible dialogue” on the importance of healing and embracing more “gentle reflective parenting styles” in pursuit of intergenerational healing or health. According to one psychologist, parents are still trying to define what intergenerational health looks like for themselves, their families, and their communities—but the efforts are aimed at “prioritizing mental health and mental wellness” in themselves and their loved ones. The expert notes that parents can break harmful patterns by looking at their own childhood experiences as a guide on how to better show up for their kids. Others are turning to counseling and therapy, while some are having honest conversations with their elder relatives. (Parents)
