Latinas Attempting Suicide

Oxford University Press

This chapter is about young Latinas and their families in ordinary circumstances. It is not an exhaustive description description of growing up Latina in the U.S. Instead, the chapter covers a small part of their lives, those aspects of growing up within the family and in a broader, rapidly changing world. It is the family context that sets the basis for looking at the Hispanic daughter in the U.S., girls with a foot in each of two cultures.

Keywords:   daughters, cultural values, adolescent Latinas, mothers, normal development
