My husband and I have definitely built a modern day familia. Our values as parents are strong and built purely on teaching our children to be loving and good human beings. We are okay with life’s mistakes and know that to grow as individuals you have to build off of those teaching moments. Growing up my parents where pretty strict, we had rules that where more about following old family values. Some of those traditions don’t necessarily translate well into the twenty-first century. Times they have changed from when my parents where children and although a lot of their values I appreciate, it was a matter of tweaking for my own family. We dreamt that one day we would have a large, beautiful family and we are lucky to be blessed with three boys. Our family dream came true and now our reality is molding strong men.
The folks at Johnson & Johnson and Univision.com have collaborated to find “La Familia de Hoy”. Today’s modern day, active and authentic family. There are three families competing for this title and they need our vote to help one of them win.
Each of the three families hava a different life story. You can read all about each of them and vote for your favorite La Familia de Hoy.
The Olivera Familia
The Lopez Familia
The Jimenez Familia
After reading their family background, I decided to vote for The Olivera family. The parents of twins, a one year old and another baby struck me as a modern day family. Mr. Olivera owns his own business and is a follower of his passions. Mrs. Olivera a stay-at-home mom, writer and performer both reminded me of my own modern day lifestyle and family.
