“Heartbroken” sums up how Mexican American mom Jeanie Kastas felt when she discovered that her 10-year-old son, Jonathan, was being taunted at school.
“The kids were calling him names like ‘wetback’ and saying things like ‘go back to your country,’” she says. It devastated her to see her jovial little fifth grader turning into a sad, angry person. “I wanted to fix it,” says Kastas, whose son is not alone, considering that almost 28 percent of Hispanic students report being bullied, according to the National Center for Education.

Being a mami is no easy task, but we Latinas have somehow managed to make it through unscathed, and we have several creative methods to thank for that. (That we learned from our moms!).

1. Our mom instilled the importance of looking good, and that's not changing anytime soon. We don't do "soccer mom" haircuts. Even if we do drive our kids to futbol. (GOOOAL!)

Whoever invented the ‘babymoon’ is genius. I don’t care of some people think it’s just another made up excuse for a vacation. HA! Like I need an excuse for a vacation. It’s been 8 long months of pregnancy and a little treat for my husband and me is exactly what we needed.
