This Dominican/Puerto Rican Viner Is Showing 15 Ways Latino Parents Slay The Parenting Game

LeJuan James is a social media master who has been educating the masses on what it’s like to be Latino. The Dominican comedian totally nails what life is like with crazy, but loving, Latino parents.

They hate it when you even try to sleep in.

Seriously. Even if it’s Saturday and you don’t have anything to do, they expect you up and dressed super early just because.

Latino parents are always heavy-handed with the VapoRub when you’re sick.

Tbh, most of us still do this even after leaving the house. Nothing is better for a cold than slather your feet with VapoRub and putting on your favorite, big socks.

“¡En casa hay comida!”

*has flashbacks to childhood*

When it comes to whooping your ass, our parents turn into track stars.

Just check out that chancla throw.

And they do not give up until they have laid that belt all over you.

They are persistent af when it comes to punishment.

Rule #65,426 to surviving in a Latino household: Never EVER talk back.

That chanclaso, bro.

Mami is the master of car ride discipline.

No backseat is too far for her mighty chancla to reach.

We all grew up with that one china cabinet we were never allowed to look at.

And the same goes for mama’s sacred decorative bathroom towels.

And you know you can’t wait to be able to so the same.

Being 18 doesn’t mean sh*t to our padres.

Only mami and papi can give you a reason to cry, got it?

When they say shower, you shower.

And there better not be any questions.

Your friends are never to be trusted because they are ALL up to no good.

If mami has to talk to your tías, you have to talk to your tías.

Better to just go ahead and clear your weekend. It’s going to be a long phone call.

But, no matter what, they will always make sure you’re taken care of and well fed.

Even if you are too ungrateful to realize it.

11 Signs You're The Soraya Of Your Squad


11 Signs You’re The Soraya Of Your Squad

There’s a Soraya in every friends group. If you look around your clique and don’t see one, well. Then it might just be you.

Let’s check and see…

1. You’re defiant and independent af.

For example, the face above is the one you make whenever friends ask, “You really gonna eat all that?” WATCH ME.

2. You don’t forget. And rarely forgive.

Some people believe in second chances. Good for them. But as for as you’re concerned, your friends are forever… and so are your enemies.

3. You have very high standards.

And that extends to your circle of friends, too. For example, if you know a friend is dating someone beneath her, you can’t help but say so! No matter the consequences…

4. You think you can take a joke, but…

…you really and truly can’t.

5. You hate admitting when you’re wrong.

Probably because you’ve never been wrong yet. ?

6. You LIVE for chisme.

It’s not that you’re a metiche so much as you love being in the know about what’s going on.

7. You wear your emotions across your face.

Your face is super honest, even when you’re trying to keep your emotions hidden, so your friends ALWAYS know exactly how you feel.

8. You have a… unique sense of humor.

9. You fight dirty.

Your closest friends know to get the hell away from you when you’re in “a mood.”

10. You’re “not” “sarcastic.”

Sometimes people can’t tell whether you’re being earnest and nice… or sarcastic and less-than-nice. Then again, you wouldn’t be super close to anyone who DOESN’T get sarcasm.

11. You’ve got big plans for you and your friends.

Credit: Televisa

The kind of plans that are best shared over a glass of wine while laughing maniacally. But, seriously: You strive to be the best and push those you care about to aim high, too.

So: You may be tough (and a fighter), but deep-down it’s all because you care*!
