Latinx parenting is

a bilingual organization rooted in children's rights, social and racial justice and antiracism, the individual and collective practice of nonviolence and reparenting, intergenerational and ancestral healing, cultural sustenance, and the active decolonization of oppressive practices in our families.

We offer family education and support that is culturally responsive to and for the Latinx community and its allies, trauma-informed, and centered on strengths and advocacy.

We are here to serve you, your children, their children, your parents, and the ripple of our ancestral mark on this earth.

We are thankful you are joining us on this journey.

“Since coming to the classes I have learned the science behind the nonviolent parenting model. It has reinforced what I would like to envision for my children’s future, and I continue to spread the word about the Latinx Parenting to anyone who works or comes in contact with children.”
— Lorena, Mami of 3

A Nerdy Latina Teaching Latinx History on Outschool

Hola! I’m Sara Youngbar. I am a former brick-and-mortar teacher and a stay-at-home mom since March 2018. I am grateful for spending so much time with my girls, but I missed teaching and wanted to make some money on the side. My eldest child was also getting more interested in school and interacting with others, […]

Our obsession with @encantomovie continues over here at Team Latinx Parenting!⁠

⁠We have so much admiration for this film and the many hidden gems inside. ❤️⁠

One of the discussions we've had was about who the villain is? And for us, it was clear that it was intergenerational trauma, which manifested through Abuela's holding on so tightly in the hopes of controlling the sufferings of the past from repeating themselves. This led to her holding on to everything in life so tightly including the family members whom she loved and intended to protect to a crushingly high set of expectations. ⁠

⁠And if we really think about it, we all do this at some level or another. We all hold on so tightly trying to control outcomes that we lose sight of what is in front of us. We lose sight of the fact that we're here to live and be and love. That's not to say that we don't grow, but that we grow healthily. ⁠

⁠Remember, mi gente, you are the gift! Not who you were supposed to be, not how you were supposed to behave, not what you brought to the table, but YOU. You as you are, are the real gift.⁠



It's time we stop hiding parts of ourselves in the hopes of not disappointing our family and losing the affection of our loved ones, it's time to tear down the roles we picked up in the hopes that fulfilling them will get us the love we need. It's time to see all of ourselves and decide that we are lovable as we are. It's time to heal, mi gente. ⁠

And let's not hold on so tight, yeah? Let's shake "the crushing weight of expectations" and open up some room for joy!⁠

You are healing, you are breaking cycles, and you are beautiful! 🔥⁠

Wanna share? What patterns are you breaking? What roles are you dropping? 👇🏽⁠

Our Brown Fatherhood series focuses on hearing from Latinx Brown Fathers who are combating machismo by reframing and reimagining masculinity.⁠ They're letting our children see that fathers feel too.⁠

Listening to these beautiful stories warms our hearts and we're so grateful for our guest speakers.⁠

Join us this Saturday at 11 am PST/2 pm EST for this FREE series via zoom. We'll be following each conversation with Q and A with our special guest. One of my all-time heroes and Maestros, author, Papá y Tata, and founder of the National Compadres Network Maestro Jerry Tello @la.cultura.cura!⁠

My commitment to reflecting, setting new intentions, learning, and shifting towards better practices is consistent and fierce. And honestly, I teach this and am intense about it because it keeps ME accountable to this movement to #endchanclaculture. ⁣⁣⁠
