Publisher Comments:

En Criando a Su Niño con Orgullo Latino, Carmen Inoa Vazquez, una distinguida sicóloga y madre latina, le ayuda a los padres latinos a educar a sus hijos en un ambiente bicultural, integrando sus valores hispanos con toda la novedad que tiene para ofrecer la cultura norteamericana. Con su innovadora técnica llamada, El Nuevo Tradicionalismo, la Dra. Vazquez ofrece a sus lectores una manera eficaz de preservar los clåsicos valores latinos de orgullo, familia, lealtad y cortesía mientras le ayuda a los padres a reevaluar sus nociones de autoritarismo tradicional. Sus siete pasos para criar niños exitosamente se resumen en el acrónimo ORGULLO:

O: Organice sus sentimientos
R: Respete los sentimientos de sus hijos
G: Guíe y enseñe a su hijo; no le ordene
U: Utilice los medios de comunicación y actualícese a menudo en ellos
L: La importancia de amar al niño o a la niña por ser quien es
L: La importancia de escuchar
O: Opere con canales de comunicación abiertos, siempre

Con sus sencillos ejercicios de autoevaluación y numerosos ejemplos detallados, Criando a Su Hijo con Orgullo Latino es el libro que le ayudará a los padres latinos modernos a transmitir su herencia cultural tanto a sus hijos como a las generaciones futuras.

Since the author is a psychologist with impeccable credentials, she is able to deliver on the the promise of the title of the book, basically how to keep a love of culture alive. I have had the same situation with are kids. Luckily we succeeded; I think, in part, because we worked on maintaining their fluency in Spanish at the same time. The language in itself increases the kids' self esteem. We document this in a brief account of our experience in the document comospan.htm in the domain Sorry we had to break it up this way; it is a Powell's rule for comments.
We found that kids enjoy singing and reciting as they learn Spanish. Even if they mouth nonsense that sounds like Spanish, they are learning the intonation of the language and it is a basis for further learning. Pero no es puro éxito, últimamente, me quejo que mis hijos leen obras traducidas del castellano por pura flojera. Why do some people read translations when they know the original language.
