EXCLUSIVE: Iyanla Vanzant & Dr. Steve Perry on How 'Mama's Boys Become Baby Daddies'

Iyanla Vanzant
"Beauty is a woman’s presence within the world that grows from how she treats herself. Beauty doesn’t have anything to do with the outside. How she holds herself  within herself will determine what she does to her outside. You can be beautiful in sweatpants or an evening gown, because it’s a state of mind—a state of being. It comes from within."

Oprah's Lifeclass returns this Sunday to tackle the issue of fatherless sons in America. ESSENCE Fest Empowerment Experience speakers Iyanla Vanzant and Dr. Steve Perry join Oprah and Dr. Geoffrey Canada to discuss how men can start being responsible to their children. In this exclusive clip, Vanzant and Perry discuss how men raised as "mama's boys" are in danger of becoming "baby daddies."

"So many mothers are allowing these grown behind men to come back into their homes without their children," says Perry.
