By Jackie :

This podcast was very insightful, especially since there is such little research conducted on the topic of Latino fathers. My mother is from Puerto Rico, and I can relate to some of Dr. Christina Mogro-Wilson's statements on Latino parenting. My grandfather definitely shared the cultural values of caballerismo and sympathia. Before listening to this podcast, I was unaware of the value terms; however, I knew that these were values and characteristics that my grandfather had while raising his children. My grandfather was the sole financial provider of the family and believed he should be the only one to bear the responsibility. I have never heard anyone say that "Latinos are resilient" until listening to this podcast. After reflecting upon my family's experiences in the United States, I would certainly agree with that statement. There is no denying that Latinos prioritize and care deeply for their family; both immediate and extended. I'm thankful for having the opportunity to listen to this podcast because I had the opportunity to reflect on my family's own experience and learn more about the cultural values that Latino fathers share.

As a social worker I couldn’t agree more regarding the value of Latino fathers in our practice. I am interested in following Dr. Wilson’s research regarding evidence based practice with the Latino population.
