If words like malcriada/o (ill-bred) or irrespetuosa (disrespectful) still have a bitter sting when you hear them, then it's likely that growing up you didn’t have much of a choice or say in things, and personal boundaries weren't a consideration. Forced hugs and kisses to all your tios, even the creepy ones, anyone? 🙋🏽🙋🏽♀️🙋🏾♂️
Now that you’re a parent, you want to do right by your kiddos by setting boundaries that honor their person, and support them to use their voice and set their own. 🎉🎉
But you're finding that when boundary-setting situations arise, those same feelings of helplessness & discomfort you felt when you were a kid creep in and you end up staying quiet, giving in, or blowing up in anger, damaging relationships you actually wish to keep.Been there!
The A Mi Manera Workshop is here to support you with practical tools and guidelines to set kind and firm boundaries with abuelos, tías, primos, and other adults in your and your kiddos’ life.
Hola, queridos! Soy Leslie Priscilla. I’m a first-generation non-black Chicana mother to three bicultural children. I’m a descendant of Indigenous Tarahumara Rarámuri and Spanish lineages, and I’ve resided on occupied Tongva and Acjachemen land, a.k.a Orange County, CA, all my life.
I’ve been working with children, caregivers, and familias for over 14 years, both as a teacher and through work with various mental health organizations throughout Orange County. But now I share my medicine with you all through Latinx Parenting, the bilingual organization I founded.
Latinx Parenting is rooted in children’s rights, social & racial justice, and antiracism, and offers family education and support that is trauma-informed, healing-centered, amplifying of our strengths, advocacy, and culturally sustaining of and for the Latinx community and its allies.
Through curated and passionate content, workshops, and courses, Latinx Parenting supports parents, caregivers, and former Latinx children to heal their lineages, raise thriving future ancestors, and create more connection with themselves, their children, and their cultura. My belief is that through this work we can leave a legacy of thriving for our gente. I’m so happy that you’re with us on this journey!
Not at all! We welcome EVERYONE who wants support setting boundaries that honor their inner niñes.
