5:39 - Empowering Your Children to Speak with Jackie Bailey

Growing up in a family culture of abuse and neglect, Jackie Bailey was told "Don't tell." With her self-esteem crushed, and her voice silenced, she withdrew. 

Years later, faced with the necessity to use her voice to save a life, Jackie realized the importance of being heard. As the executive director of the Speak Feed Lead Project (a nonprofit serving children and adults), Jackie's mission today is to help others find their voice and speak their message with power.

Jackie is the author of SELF-Centered Leadership: Becoming Influential, Intentional, and Exceptional. She is an international speaker, mentor, and trainer who has developed public speaking and leadership curriculum and teaches 100's of children, teens, and adults in a virtual classroom.

Inspiring her students to discover their story, value their culture, and develop empathy for others is an essential part of the mission of The Speak Feed Lead Project.

Children are undervalued as a source of inspiration. They've been taught this as well, leading them to internalize their feelings without the skills to share them properly.

Communication is not optional. When parents and children don't communicate it leads to misinterpretation, misinformation, and misperception. The solution is helping children, teens and adults to examine their values, discover their stories, and learn to use their voice for good.

Parents love when children answer questions with actual words rather than grunts or "whatever". Conversation and listening skills are the foundation to clear and concise communication.

Governments spend millions of dollars on youth programs, and it's not working. The stats regarding juvenile justice, foster care, and homelessness are astounding in their proof of failure. The programs I offer is a new idea, and has had incredible results.

Jackie shares her experience growing up in an abusive situation and how it has led her to work to empower children to use their voices to speak up for themselves, and to make a difference!

The Speak Feed Lead Project is a 501(c)(3) corporation transforming children, teens and adults to SPEAK with power, FEED others in word and deed, and LEAD with positive influence

About the Podcast

The Family Culture Movement
I help parents claim leadership in their homes and become the expert of their family culture.
Family Culture is all about blending your individual and collective values and norms to create an interrelated unit. Every family has a culture whether by design or by default. Most of us are unaware of our social conditioning until it is mirrored back to us by our kids. The Family Culture Movement is a show about breaking up with the dominant culture to raise a family with unwavering resilience, calling out dysfunctional patterns, and cultivating an environment of growth and trust.

Join me, Jodi Chaffee, every week with guests from a variety of backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences to bring you practical insights, powerful tools, and reliable resources for navigating your family culture journey with intention and compassion. We’re here to support you in implementing best practices and solutions for your family. Everything will be on the table as I discuss topics ranging from media literacy to financial literacy, normalizing sexual health to normalizing family dinners, homeschool, entrepreneurship, and much, much more.

Formerly, Our Modern Heritage: The Home & Family Culture Podcast.
