Season 2 Episode 6: First-Gen Parents and Mental Health

February 24, 2022

Join us for part II of First-Gen February as we explore the world of first-gen parents, whose padres immigrated to the US and are the first to raise their children in a country different than their own. We get into the duality of first-gen parenting and unpack the mental health aspects of this journey; we get into what it means to actively break generational trauma cycles, ending chancla culture, addressing toxic masculinity, and choosing to raise bi-lingual children- or not. Your co-hosts La Estrella and La Sirena welcome guest Anabel Raya, a mother of 2 and first-gen parent to share her story. Ponte el seat belt, grab those snacks, you do not want to miss this episode as we celebrate first-gen parents and get real about first-gen parenting!
