In this episode, Danellia speaks with her comadre Leslie Priscilla from @latinxparenting. Leslie Priscilla Arreola-Hillenbrand is 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. 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. Danellia and Leslie talk about how crisis schooling (coined by Akilah S. Richards of Fare of the Free Child) is forcing many parents to reevaluate their parenting and their education choices for their children. They discuss how they, themselves have been extremely triggered by their own children during the pandemic more than ever before and how to work through those triggers.
