Overview

Con Respeto is the story of ten Mexican immigrant families and how each goes about the business of surviving and learning to succeed in a new world. Guadalupe Valde's brings to life the everyday worlds of these families and describes in detail how they viewed themselves as parents as they tried to adjust to a new life and prepare their children to become competent adults. She examines what is commonly believed to be a disinterest in education by Mexican parents and shows, through extensive interviews, as well as first-hand observation, that these hardworking families are both rich and strong in family values and bring with them clear views of what constitutes success and failure.
