It’s officially Mixed Heritage Week! Every year we’ve voiced the need to bring awareness to how diverse our country has become. We know the importance of teaching our children positive identity and always aim to bring parents like us tips on teaching kids about their heritage.
This year we want to bring awareness to our combined heritage the need to express ourselves as Mixed Americans.
It wasn’t until late last year over a conversation with the hubs, that I realized we failed to teach our kids they are American. We talk about being Blackxican, my roots from Mexico and growing up Mexican-American and now the hubs building his family tree with his mom. These are all pieces to the puzzle that allow my children to explore and discover their heritage! But we never spoke about us here in America. I guess it felt obvious but the more I taught my kids about who we are, who they are and where we come from, I needed them to know that our country our America is Mixed therefore many of our family and friends are Mixed Americans.
I hope you join us in the conversation in spreading positive awareness and be proud of your mixed roots!
