Somos Padres is a parenting podcast where husband and wife duo, Paulo and Yesenia, talk about and share information about parenting AND also embrace parenting as the vehicle thru which we can recognize the places where we need to do some work on ourselves. Yesenia would call it healing, Paulo would call it evolve and others would call it something else, but it doesn’t matter what anyone calls it. It is the recognition that our children are our mirrors that reflect back to us the places where we need to grow as human beings, and talking about parenting thru this lens is what Paulo and Yesenia are passionate about. Podcasts drop as often as this mom and dad are able to release.

Episode 48: Life at Home
New Podcast Episode! True story, we started recording this episode multiple times because we didn’t agree on whether or not to start by saying "AGAIN, that we are back after a long hiatus". It wasn’t until the fourth or fifth time that we finally realized that our not recording was a manifestation of how we were living our lives; putting things off that we cared about because we were “too busy” or “too tired”. While talking we realized that the current pandemic experience can be an offering from the universe. Paulo and Yesenia offer a glimpse of where they currently are in processing their quarantine experience and share what they are currently struggling with and how they are looking at things differently while at home. Thanks for tuning in!
