Our parenting styles are strongly influenced by both how we were parented and current societal norms. However, what if how we have learned to parent doesn’t feel right? What if we believe our children deserve more? In this conversation, I talk to Leslie Priscilla Arreola-Hillenbrand about her experience growing up in an authoritarian culture and how she has looked to the history of her ancestry to change the future.

If you enjoyed this episode, and it inspired you in some way, I’d love to hear about it and know your biggest takeaway. Take a screenshot of you listening on your device, post it to your Instagram stories, and tag me @mindfulmamamentor.

  1. We all bring different cultural parenting habits and patterns.
  2. An essential step to liberation for you and your kids is re-mothering yourself.
  3. Oppression begins in the home. Are we teaching our kids to use their voices?

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’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.
