How do we reparent ourselves, and what does it even mean to begin with?
In this week’s episode, I speak with Leslie Priscilla, a first generation non-Black Xicana with Rarámuri lineage. She is a mother to three biracial children and a certified Parent Coach with over 13 years of experience.
She shares with us her knowledge and insight on reparenting our own inner child so that we can show up and be the parents we’ve always wanted to be.
Listen in as we talk about:
- The changes she’s making to parenting in LatinX culture
- What reparenting is and why our own healing is important
- Why reparenting ourselves can feel uncomfortable and disrespectful in relation to how we were raised
- The importance of self-compassion and tips to visualizing it
- How to break patterns of anger
Leslie shares her medicine by offering coaching, workshops, support and advocacy for Latinx/Chicanx families locally, nationally and internationally via Latinx Parenting. Leslie’s vision is of a movement rooted in children’s rights, social and racial justice, 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 towards liberation.
