Failing Motherhood
Breaking the Cycle with Christie Lazo
Show Notes

A real-life "Luisa Madrigal (Encanto)", Christie Lazo is a Peruvian-Canadian eldest daughter in an immigrant family living in a multigenerational home with her dad after her mom died.

After diving into her guilt/struggle with continuing to work full time, Christie speaks to her journey of healing her past and choosing to parent differently than she was parented.

Among many topics, she invites us into her story of reclaiming her indigenous roots, Catholicism, consent culture, acceptance and trust, as well as Chancla/Sandalia culture.

Her parents moved to Canada for a "better life".  For Christie, a "better life" includes her mental health, how she's raising her kids, and being a better parent as well.

"If I can heal so my daughter never has to, it's worth every effort."
