S02 E02 – Consent Parenting (With Rosalia Rivera)
Hi, I'm Rosalia Rivera, Consent Educator, Sexual Literacy Advocate, Speaker, change agent, founder of CONSENTparenting, host of the AboutCONSENT Podcast, creatrix of CONSENTwear and child sexual abuse survivor turned thriver.
I help child sexual abuse survivors who are now parents learn how to educate their children on body safety, boundaries and consent so that they can empower their child to prevent abuse.
Unlike safety education programs by non-survivors that can't relate to the struggle, fears, and triggers of survivor parents; I offer sensitive, empowering and non-fear action & implementation based how-to-courses with guided support.
Rosalia Rivera is certified in CONSCIOUS PARENTING MASTERY with Dr. Shefali Tsabary, Ph. D., as well as the Canadian Centre for Child Protection® COMMIT TO KIDS- Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Training Program.

S02 E01 – Return To School (With Eileen Carter-Campos)
Hi, I’m Eileen, an educator, mom of two, and proud Boricua! Here on "MommyTeaches," you’ll receive real insight from a teacher of more than 15 years and a mother of two boys who love to explore the world around them. But “Mommy Teaches” isn’t just the name of the blog, it’s my life! I’m teaching every single day, whether in the classroom or at home with my own kids. As mothers, we know just how important our role is, as we become our child’s first teacher.
Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, I find myself not to be a city girl, that’s the reason I relocated to Hudson Valley, NY in 2017. I enjoy reading, writing, sunsets, and spending time with my boys in the simplest way possible. I love the zoo, the park, and any chance I get I am incorporating academics as well. I strongly believe parental involvement is the key to a child’s success and I am proof of it. I have a son who is diagnosed with a mild case of Asperger’s and I work with him thoroughly, as I do with all of my school children to make sure they succeed.
Here on "Mommy Teaches," I blog about my experiences in the classroom, strategies that work for me, issues that may take place, as well as my blessings of being a mother, some trials and tribulations that mothers may go through, book reviews of my favorite books, and the everyday world of Eileen. I love what I do and I hope to be of some comfort, help, and guidance to other mothers all over the world! Thank you for sticking with me through this adventure.
