Local Author Writes a Guidebook for Immigrant Parents – October 16, 2019

For many students, traumatic experiences may hinder their ability to do well in school.

Santa Rosa Author Rafael  Vazquez published a book this Fall to help migrant parents raise their kids in a country they didn’t grow up in. “Achieving your dreams” is only available in Spanish and focuses on the trauma many immigrant families endure when migrating to the U.S. KRCB’s Adia White spoke with Vazquez after a talk at the Sonoma County Library last week. She asked how both parents and community members can support kids to achieve their dreams.
