Criar a niños pequeños cuando están en su etapa de “¡Yo lo puedo hacer solo!”, puede llegar a ser algo a la vez complicado y divertido. Cuando cumplen dos años, los niños ya caminan, hablan, corren, ríen, bailan. Y también ayudan. Cada día adquieren nuevas experiencias de vida y cada día desarrollan más y de […]

Parenting toddlers through their “I can do it myself!” stage, can be tricky and fun to watch. By the time toddlers turn two, they walk, talk, run, laugh, dance and help. Every day, they gain new life experiences and they also start to naturally develop their independence. Most toddlers are heavily reliant on us parents […]
New California law will allow adults aged 26 to 49 to qualify for full-scope Medi-Cal health coverage, regardless of immigration status, starting January 1. The full-scope of Medi-Cal will cover more than just emergency care for residents. It will cover doctor visits, mental health care, preventative care, referrals, medicines, transportation and in-home services. This initiative is modeled after the Young Adult Expansion and the Older Adult Expansion plans already in place. This latest expansion of full-scope Medi-Cal brings California closer to a healthier population. California will become the first state to expand Medi-Cal to cover this population and represents the next largest expansion following the state’s May 1, 2022 expansion for undocumented residents 50 and older.
¡Si, soy Rebelde! A fines de octubre, y luego de 15 años de ausencia, la icónica banda de pop mexicano RBD regresó para presentarse, por última vez, en Los Ángeles para su gira Soy Rebelde 2023. Cuando RBD actuó por primera vez en Los Ángeles yo tenía solo 10 años de edad. Recuerdo que les […]
Si soy Rebelde! After 15-years, the iconic Mexican pop band RBD returned in late October to perform one last time in the city of Los Angeles for their Soy Rebelde Tour 2023. I was 10-years-old when RBD first performed in Los Angeles. I remember begging my parents to take me to that concert. Despite several of my requests to my parents, I was unable to attend the concert since I come from a low-income family. Trust me, I was heartbroken. Going to this concert as an adult was definitely an emotional roller coaster. I drove two hours from Bakersfield just to see them perform in LA. On my way there, I cried because I was in disbelief that my child’s dream was finally coming true. That night, when the band came out on stage, I didn’t know if I wanted to cry or jump out of happiness.
As a first time parent, I struggle with the harsh reality of time. Earlier this week, my little Levi turned two years old, a moment I had been dreading because I don’t want him to keep growing so fast. As much as I want to hold on, I realize that these emotional experiences are just part of parenthood. I’m well aware that years three, four, five and six will also feel equally sad. I do realize that I am blessed to be around to watch my child grow. On his first birthday, we decided to take him to Disneyland, but for his second birthday, we decided to throw him his first birthday party. The process of planning even a small party these days can be quite stressful and expensive.
After two years of parenting, I can say that being a parent is not meant to be easy. Being a mom or dad is one of the most rewarding yet challenging jobs in the world. And just as a coach can help you improve your career, they can also help you become a better parent every day. All I can say is that if you’re experiencing mom guilt, the first thing you need to know is that it’s completely normal, it’s just a part of motherhood. Feeling guilty will only make things worse, so give yourself a break. I have to constantly applaud myself for being the best mom that I can truly be. Constantly questioning whether you’re a good mom is what makes you a good mom.
En honor al Mes Nacional de la Herencia Hispana, que se celebra del 15 de septiembre al 15 de octubre, el Hospital Providence St. Joseph en el condado de Orange está difundiendo información sobre la necesidad de que haya más donantes de órganos registrados en la comunidad latina. Es que de manera similar a su subrepresentación en […]
Similar to the under-representation of Latinos in medicine and in clinical trials, they are also underrepresented in organ donation. In 2020, the number of organ transplants performed on Latinos was about 30% of the number of Latinos currently waiting for a transplant, according to the US Department of Health and Human Services Office of Minority Health. Compared to those currently waiting for a transplant, whites were the recipients of 48.8% of transplants.
Does your child throw temper tantrums without warning? Mine does, too. I must admit that the ‘terrible twos’ are sneaking up on my son, Levi, who is almost 2. So, if you find yourself outright fearful of sudden tantrum throwdowns, I completely feel your pain. As most parents, my partner and I are just winging it most days. In this column you’ll find some of my techniques I use to try to reduce tantrums with my son Levi.
