Really think about them. What are the words you would use to describe them?  Are any of those words ones you use to describe adults? Lady, if you are like most of us then at least one word is probably more appropriate to describe an adult.  In today’s episode, Terri and Dr. Dom help us understand the negative impact of adultification in our Black girls.
