Healing & Liberation Require Intention

In order to heal you must understand what needs to be healed and where the wounding came from. The same applies to liberation. We must understand the areas of oppression within us and understand the context that bred that oppression. Our DNVP intro workshop is intentionally designed to give you the foundation for planting the seeds of healing and liberation in your relationship with your niñes, your familia, and your home.

The healing that our society so desperately needs begins at home.

Whether we fully realize it or not, how we parent has implications far beyond what happens in our homes and what happens in our children’s lives. It makes an impact in our society not just today, but in the future. 

The children we have now will be the grown ups of our future and what they learn in each of our homes will inform the society and culture they create. That means that through our parenting we have the opportunity to impact the future state of our society.

Our Decolonized Nonviolent Parenting Introductory course is our primer workshop for parents who are interested in building a more connected relationship with their children while planting seeds for a more liberated future for our people and our society.

Here's what DNVP will support you with:

Understanding the principles and practice of Decolonized Nonviolence with your children and familias
Releasing any parental guilt and shame when you've acted or may act out of alignment with Nonviolence
Gaining insight into the historical, systemic, and familial roots of our own behaviors, as well as our children’s
practices that aid in developing emotional intelligence, autonomy, confidence, & honoring Other's needs
Strategies to implement with yourself that model healthy behavior for your children and family
Guidance on how to introduce & initiate practices that are in alignment with raising liberated families

What our comunidad has to say

Lo and behold the behavior stopped MUCH quicker

"A few days after the workshop, my child was having a tantrum. Prior to the workshop, my go-to would be to silence her and tell her to be quiet. I would belittle her emotions and not hold any space for her. When this tantrum came up, I wanted to resort to what I usually say and do. But instead, I was able to look within and tell myself and say, "Wow self, you’ve been SO hurt that it's hard for you to empathize with your child. You never had space held for your feelings, no wonder it's hard for you to hold space for your child. How would it have made you feel if you DID have empathy and space held for you? model it for her!" What happened next? I dried her tears and just held her. And lo and behold the behavior stopped MUCH quicker than if I would have tried to quiet her down or make her feel like her emotions weren't acceptable."

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!
