Hi I'm Janny Perez, proud immigrant daughter, Latina mom to Threenager Victoria Grace, rockstar wife, and founder of Mi Legasi.™ As a proud Latina, I wanted my multicultural daughter to embrace her Latino roots. I wanted her to learn Español and grow up in a family rooted in old and new traditions. As a working mamá I completely understand that we have a million things to do and sometimes while we have the best intentions we simply get caught in the day to day. I wanted to create a thoughtful, time saving, delivered gift box for Latino or multicultural families striving to pass down their culture and traditions to their children, and so, Mi LegaSi was born. Pronounced "Me Legacy."
There is one phrase I always tell mi familia and friends, “As long as my daughter can grow up and not be an asshole, then I think I did a good job as a parent.” Of course I want my kid to grow up and one day accomplish bigger and greater things than I have, but for me, it shouldn’t be at the cost of being a decent human being. Trying to raise a kind kid with empathy, concern, and care for all living things so she can grow up making a difference is at the top of my list like so many parents. So what are some everyday easy things We can do with our kids teach our kids to ser amables? Here are some tips and tools that'll inspire your entire familia.
