M.O.M.S. (Moms Offering Moms Support): ¡Ay, mami! Latina motherhood in the United States

While all mothers have some things in common—their desire to protect, educate and love their children—the beliefs and values for raising a family in the United States differ from one culture to another.

Mothering as Latinas often is generally described as warm, nurturing and very family-oriented. Although parenting styles among Latinos differ according to educational background, level of income and acculturation, it is safe to say that raising bicultural children can sometimes be challenging.

Join the Flora Stone Mather Center for Women for the M.O.M.S (Moms Offering Moms Support) kickoff luncheon Wednesday, Sept. 28, from noon to 1:30 p.m. in Tinkham Veale University Center, Suite 248.

Elena Foulis, director of the women’s center, will lead the discussion and talk about her experience of raising biracial daughters.
