Natural Moms Podcast #74

February 18, 2008

This week we are joined by Monica Salazar of Familia Libre. Monica is an Urban Geographer from Quito, Ecuador. She is a natural parenting advocate, online business owner and mother of a 3 year old son.

On the show, Monica shares the benefits of avoiding age-spatial segregation. By wearing our babies and letting our young children accompany us as we interact through life, we can teach them how to behave appropriately in our culture and they gain important social skills.

She also relates the dangers of age segregation and points to the abuse suffered by children at the hands of their parents as well as the behavior of many teenagers as evidence of this. Integrating children and older people leads to more understanding, empathy and respect. It also gives others an opportunity to observe good parenting in action, which has obvious benefits for the younger generation.
