Spanish Program

Assist parents in the most important responsibility of their lives – loving their children and teaching them to love.

The Conversations about L.I.F.E. program is designed to help parents talk to their own children about the important things in life—family life, friendship, and the teen-age experience of sexual attraction and falling in love. Conversations about these topics can be especially difficult for immigrant Latinx families whose children are growing up in the United States. Help Latinx parents to guide their own children – from kindergarten through high school—in developing loving relationships and avoiding relationships that are negative and abusive.

Conversations about L.I.F.E. was translated from the original English by Maira Lizbeth Davalos Tinajero and Sandra Cruz. The translation was specifically prepared for Latinx children whose families have immigrated to the United States and who are attending public or private schools and catechetical programs where all of their classes are presented in English.
