Millennium Fellowship Project: AgradableMente
Statistics on child abuse and negligence are high, specially on Mexico, were we´re currently living in. The purpose of AgradableMente is to communicate ways in which parents can practice positive parenting and break the cycle of violent parenting styles that are promoted in latin american culture. To achieve this, we will develop and publish a podcast focused on psychoeducation in a friendly way about positive parenting and other topics related to psychology (eg. emotions, effects of quarantine, stress, among others). Likewise, we are going to create a community on social networks that can interact directly with us and with our content. We strongly believe that the way parenting currently works in our country could be positively impacted if we work with parents in different ways so they can learn how to protect and raise their children throughout life.
