Description - Raising Nuestros Ni Nos by Gloria G. Rodriguez

All parents want their children to thrive and succeed, but Latino parents face a unique set of challenges -- passing along our much-cherished cultural traditions and values, while sending our sons and daughters into an increasingly fast-paced and often homogeneous world, where it's easy to lose sight of nuestra familia and the legacy of past generations. Now, an award-winning Latina in the field of early childhood education (and a mother herself) has assembled an indispensable reference for Hispanic parents and caregivers of children from birth to age twelve. A practical reference as well as a precious treasury of la cultura, Raising Nuestros Ninos covers: * Our History, Traditions, and Culture: Lessons to share with your children, and simple ways to enrich your child's development and self-esteem as you celebrate your heritage * Your Child's Social, Emotional, and Intellectual Skills: How to encourage these vital areas of a youngster's development, and why an environment rich in Latino culture will enhance your child's future * The Value of Family and Community: The cornerstones of effective parenting that have supported and nurtured generations of Latino households Filled with the latest research as well as personal anecdotes, songs, recipes, dichos, and games, Raising Nuestros Ninos will provide a rich cultural framework designed to help you parent effectively and responsibly, as you pass along the priceless gift of nuestra cultura.
