00:05
Oh, hello there.
00:06
Welcome to the Kayo.
00:07
I am Alejandro and I am Jenny.

So let's get into it,
00:40
Bob The Builder movie is coming to theaters.
00:42
I guess it's produced by J Lo and Mattel.
00:45
So the people that,
00:46
you know, behind the Barbie movie too,
00:48
but is it gonna be as big as Barbie?
00:50
You think? I don't know.
00:51
I don't think it's gonna be as big as Barbie,
00:53
but I think it's gonna be,
00:56
it's gonna be, I don't know.
00:58
But let me tell you because Anthony Ramos is actually playing Bob
01:00
the Builder. It's set in Puerto Rico.
01:03
So again, there's a lot of like good stuff to come
01:06

01:07
you know, people will be excited but supposedly there's some controversy
01:10
No, I don't know.
01:14
So I've heard is ok.
01:16
Well, I mean,

01:23
Did make one already?
01:25

01:26
but they should. So we got Bob the Builder.
01:29
Let's do a Handy Manny movie too.
01:30
Maybe they could, you know,
01:31
it's like,,
01:32
was it Avengers End game kind of situation?
01:34
The Multiverse? But you know what,
01:37

01:41
thoughts on the whole Bob the builder movie.

02:22
What's his name? Ramos?
02:24
Ramos. He this guy,
02:26
I can't believe this guy.
02:27
This guy when he makes his sexy face is the face I
02:30
make when I go number two.
02:31
Ok, let me tell you something.
02:34
Not only that the Los Ojos de Colo has colored eyes,
02:39
construction workers don't have colored eyes.
02:44
The sun burns our eyes,
02:46
the dark black, the blacker,
02:48
the better if you have black eyes,
02:51
if you have black eyes,
02:53
tra, I, I used to have blue eyes.
02:57
Now look at, oh Peron,
02:59
Los Lente, not Lente loco,
03:03
loco. Ok. Do you see this building?
03:07
I built it myself.
03:09
I built it myself.
03:10
The real b the builder right there.
03:11
That's right. The real Rob,
03:13
the builder. Porque Roberto Siemen.
03:17
They call me Bob because I'm in America now I'm a citizen
03:21
you know a white girl and I'm a citizen.
03:25
Well, we'll let you get back to work and let me
03:28
tell you, shut your mouth,
03:32
shut your mouth. Ok?
03:35
The, the better it should be me Cron,
03:37
it should be me.
03:40
Er oh oh yeah,
03:50
a model way. I all right.
03:56
Well, I know your lunch is probably over.
03:58
So we're gonna let you go and you know Jenny,
04:01
if you wanna connect with him,
04:03
I get is security there.
04:11
All right. Thank you.
04:14
I don't know. Well,
04:17
we'll see how it turns out.
04:19
Yeah, I'm excited to see.
04:25
All right. Now for our next story.
04:28
We're talking about long ass names and why,
04:33
why our culture be giving us some long names like the telenovela
04:39
names. I mean,
04:41
first from the father and second from the mother.
04:43
So like, I mean mine is Arias,
04:45
mine is Jennifer Brianna Arias Brizuela.
04:49
And I guess because my dad does Arias now my mom is
04:51
Prisa. But yeah,
04:54
what do you think?
04:55
What is yours? Brother Alejandro Perez?
04:57
Junior. That's boring.
04:58
I just kidding. Just kidding.
05:00
Alejandro Perez. You want me to the LAMAs de Perez?
05:03
All that. My birth certificate is not there.
05:06
But,, it's kind of like that one guy from
05:09
Sac and Cody.
05:09
Do you remember? Like,
05:10
it's about Julio Ricardo Ramirez the third or something like,
05:15
yeah, just like that.
05:16
The long names that I like.
05:17
Yeah, me too.
05:18
It rolls off the tongue nicely.
05:20
You know, I don't know how the hell they remember it
05:21
But yeah, I mean,
05:24
speaking of which Costa Rica's Supreme Court has ruled that citizens
05:29
are no longer required to follow the traditional order,
05:33
moving away from patriarchal naming conventions.
05:36
So I guess basically Costa Rica's letting their people choose whether they
05:42
wanna take on their father's last name or their mother's last name
05:47
from what I'm getting at.
05:49
Let's go over some of our favorite celebs traditional name,
05:53
the one and only Camila Camila.
05:55
Are you there? Hi,
05:58
what's up? So you can you hear our story?
06:04
Yes. Wait, what?
06:06
Sorry, I didn't hear you.
06:07
Did you hear a story about the whole like Costa Rica?
06:11
So, yeah, the new law,
06:13
it's actually really, really interesting.
06:15
Like so before this Costa Rica actually had a legal mandate that
06:21
the father's last name had to come before the mother's last name
06:26
What's interesting though is that we actually don't have that
06:29
here in the United States,
06:31
but 95% of people still give their kids,
06:36
the father's last name first.
06:38
So patriarchal societies are still alive and well,
06:42
but still I think that the law is,
06:45
it's, it's, I don't know,
06:46
it's an interesting step in the right direction.
06:49
I don't know. I mean,
06:50
to me it doesn't really make sense because it's like we carry
06:54
the Children, you know,
06:56
we should have a say we should cook first.
06:58
I'm just kidding. I don't know.
06:59
Anyways, let's get my G Camila.
07:02
Sorry. But anyways,
07:04
you said that you have some long names,
07:06
some iconic long Latino names at you every guitar rally.
07:11
Is it a song?
07:12
It is a song.
07:13
Yes. All right.
07:16
Well, Camila, I preferred a song about just crazy celebrity
07:24
long last names or long names in general.
07:28
So let's get into it.
07:29
Here it goes. Ok.
07:31
Eva Jack and Longoria Bastone,
07:34
Shakira, Isabel, Meba Apo Luisa Alfonso Rodrigue Lopez.
07:41
A Pero. That's Luis Fonsi.
07:46
Johno Bela is Sophia Margarita Vergara Begara again.
07:56
Yes, Latinos have long names so far.
08:01
Moms can complain for long.
08:05
That was beautiful. We do.
08:08
We go back and thank you.
08:10
That was, yeah,
08:11
that was amazing. I was like,
08:13
and you know what?
08:14
Speaking of a oh and speaking of stage names,
08:19
you have a hidden talent that you keep bringing to the show
08:21
every, every episode.
08:23
So, what's your alter ego?
08:25
What's your stage name?
08:26
What's your real name?
08:26
Camila? So my real name now that we're on the topic
08:32
is Camila Barreto Saloon.
08:35
No middle name though,
08:37
but my artistic name is Camila Luna.
08:40
So that's my alter ego.
08:42
My day and night,
08:44
double identity, I guess as soon as you have a banner
08:47
with Camila Luna or on Spotify,
08:50
there you go. You're on Spotify and Apple Music,
08:53
Camila. Yeah, I am,
08:55
I am. All my songs are there.
08:57
Well, thank you so much Camila.
08:59
I really appreciate you coming on here.
09:02
Yes. Thank you guys for letting me sing on the show
09:05
So take us out.
09:07
That's Oh my God.
09:10
Oh, she is doing it,
09:12
said no sweat. Oh Love that.
09:17
Oh, we just got breaking news last week.
09:21
South Africa sued Israel for the way it's conducting war against
09:25
Hamas in the occupied territory of Gaza.
09:29
Israel has killed more than 25,000 Palestinians after Hamas killed more
09:34
than 1000 Israelis today.
09:37
The court said Israel,
09:39
you need to stop doing that.
09:44
But I'm sorry, I like,
09:46
I, I like,
09:46
I don't know too much about the exact numbers.
09:50
I'm like scared to say the wrong thing because I don't wanna
09:52
like, you know,
09:54
but and so that court case is currently happening in the
09:57
Netherlands and we actually have an update from a court case happening
09:59
here in the States.
10:01
Yeah, actually regarding a story from last week with the
10:04
order, I don't know if you wanna go ahead and
10:06
yeah, I so last week,
10:08
Biden went to the Supreme Court to four Texas,
10:11
Governor Abbott to let us,
10:14
border patrol handle migrants.
10:17
so the update is this week.
10:19
Scotus told Abbott he had to follow federal law and,
10:23
you know,
10:24
some Republican justices just kind of ignored,
10:30
like, just gave the cold shoulder,
10:31
I guess. I'm just like,
10:35
I mean, I mean,
10:37
I'm just saying, like,
10:38
like, I don't know about you brother,
10:40
but I'm getting a little civil wars vibe like going on or
10:43
I don't know if this is just politics.
10:45
But yeah, I mean,
10:47
it sounds like it's just Texas versus the federal government.
10:50
And I feel like because it is an election year,
10:52
things are probably getting a little more intense,
10:54
you know, we're not the big guns,
10:55
they're like, we're not gonna pull back.
10:57
Yeah, and it goes more with the agenda that these like
11:01
politicians, these Republican politicians want like it goes with their agenda
11:06
So they're like,
11:06
ok, let me hop on,
11:07
you know. but yeah,
11:10
many people are seeking asylum at the border from places like Venezuela
11:15
and just central America overall.
11:17
So what Biden did?
11:19
He proposed $14 billion for more border patrol agents to fight cartels
11:25
and help process people.
11:26
And Trump called Republicans to make sure that they turned it down
11:31
So yeah,
11:32
it's like Republican Mitt Romney said they are refusing solutions so they
11:36
can campaign against Biden.
11:38
So that's where they're what they're going to do.
11:41
It's like, I,
11:42
I feel like Que Todos Juntos,
11:43
like you said, very clicky,
11:45
very like, you know,
11:46
now you're gonna do that.
11:47
No. Yeah. And again,
11:48
I get it's politics but there's obviously a lot at stake here
11:52
But they're just like,
11:52
no, hey, dude,
11:53
don't do that. Are you my friend?
11:55
Are you on my team?
11:56
And meanwhile, again,
11:57
what's morally right would be kind of again,
12:00
hopping on Biden's proposed plan and seeing what we can do
12:03
But yeah, we'll have to see how this plays out
12:07
as we know again in this election year.
12:08
So stay tuned for more updates,
12:11
for sure. It's only gonna get more intense I feel.
12:17
So this year, many of the immigrants showing up at the
12:21
border are families and speaking of our families.
12:27
I mean, raising kids is hard enough,
12:29
brother. What do you think?
12:31
I mean, he's gonna be a future.
12:32
We got a future dad right here.
12:34
She's coming in March.
12:35
So looking forward to it.
12:37
But I'm also again,
12:39
speaking of bring about bilingual.
12:41
Yes. Yes. Yes.
12:43
I'm hoping again, it sounds easy like a dream.
12:46
My baby will be trilingual because my wife's Filipina,
12:49
but she doesn't speak the language.
12:50
But my swear that will probably babysit is you know,
12:54
fluent, my parents speak Spanish and as do I and English
12:58
So again, it sounds pretty.
13:00
It sounds like it's,
13:00
yeah, we're gonna do it,
13:01
you know, we always have the,
13:03
the No Sabo and the C Sao kids.
13:05
So we, they get a bad rap.
13:07
I think it is hard.
13:09
It's hard to, to raise bilingual kids.
13:12
Thankfully, we have Jessica and Miguel two new parents joining us
13:17
Hello guys. Hi guys.
13:19
And we have bilingual expert,
13:21
Marite Vela, author of four award winning parenting books,
13:25
including raising bilingual Children to tell us about Las Realidad to raising
13:31
kids. Yeah. Hi guys.
13:34
Buenos. Good morning.
13:37
I don't know if you ever heard,
13:38
but I am expecting a little baby girl and I'm like,
13:41
she's gonna be trilingual.
13:44
Sounds good. You're sweating brothers.
13:47
This is fine. But let's start off with Jessica Miguel.
13:53
How's it been going with the two babies?
13:55
Yes. We have a two year old and then this little
13:58
guy is two months old.
14:00
My husband is from Colombia and I'm a no Savo kid who
14:05
learns at 30. It's also never over.
14:10
My family is from Southern Arizona like Nogales area and I met
14:18
Miguel and demanded he teach me Spanish.
14:20
So I like that.
14:24
we're raising our two year old or,
14:28
well, both of our kids,
14:29
this one just can't talk yet bilingual.
14:31
And it's, it's,
14:34
it's crazy. We have friends who also are trying to raise
14:38
bilingual kids and the default becomes English a lot of the time
14:42
And I'm constantly saying Miguel,
14:45
I like, like always like we need to speak Spanish to
14:49
our, our kids primarily because what they get in the world
14:53
is English.,
14:55
and then we enrolled our two year olds in a bilingual preschool
14:59
and there was a moment where we weren't sure about the teacher
15:02
and we went back and forth and I had to tell Miguel
15:04
like, if,
15:06
if she's not in a bilingual school now I'm afraid she won't
15:09
learn. And then even as much as we talk to her
15:13
at home, it's more than just speaking at home.
15:16
It's reading, it's writing,
15:18
it's being really literate and able to work and have a whole
15:25
identity around speaking Spanish that I think he maybe takes for granted
15:30
because he grew in Colombia.
15:32
And it's also like a necessity for my kids because my
15:36
parents, like no one in my family speaks English.
15:40
So I want my kids to have relationship with them.
15:44
That's why it's so important for us to OK.
15:48
Isa Pines Espanol, Enzo to Dam.
15:52
So, you know,
15:52
it's just like, yeah,
15:53
reminding yourself every day how to help them and,
15:58
and it's been, it's been a whole journey these two years
16:01
for sure. Like,
16:02
like we'll, we'll talk about it for sure.
16:05
But yeah,
16:06
it's, it's, it's amazing how isa our two year old
16:10
can do both languages and it's just like for her,
16:14
it's just one thing,
16:16
it's not English or Spanish.
16:18
And so she's like counting 1 to 10 in English and Uno
16:23
alias in Espanol is like she can go,
16:26
you know, from one to another and two,
16:29
she's now starting to realize that some people speak Spanish and some
16:33
people speak English really fun to see her like come to me
16:36
and she'll be like wash hands,
16:38
wash hands and then ala and say manos,
16:41
manos Romanos, she could turn that switch on,
16:45
right. That, that she's as fluent like that.
16:47
Marite, we actually wanted to,
16:49
you know, get your input on this.
16:50
Does this sound like something you know,
16:51
familiar or you've heard of these stories too?
16:53
Like in all your,
16:54
with all your expertise?
16:56
Yes, it happens.
16:57
And I I'm very happy that you have both decided to do
17:03
this. That's the first,
17:04
the first step. It's to decide that you are going to
17:08
raise bilingual Children. Once you have that I suggest in your
17:12
case, well, I tell all the parents to do this
17:15
sit down and kind of map out a family language plan
17:19
And in that plan,
17:20
it seems like you're already doing it.
17:22
But in that plan,
17:23
you include the method you're going to use,
17:25
which in your case,
17:26
it sounds like it's one parent,
17:28
one language, there's like three main methods,
17:30
one parent, one language,
17:32
minority language at home,
17:33
which is when both parents speak the,
17:35
let's say Spanish in this case at home.
17:38
And then there's another method that is pretty popular is called time
17:42
and place. And that method is used a lot by parents
17:47
that are raising Children with three languages.
17:50
So you pick two times a week just to start with the
17:54
third language or with the majority language.
17:58
I'm sorry, with the minority language.
18:01
And you pick and everything that happens in those days is in
18:04
Spanish, for example,
18:06
like the reading and cooking,
18:08
you're talking to the kids,
18:10
you know about a recipe and Alita,
18:12
they talk to Alita or Alito on,
18:14
you know, on virtually or facetime,
18:18
everything revolves around the language.
18:21
Everybody has a different family,
18:23
different circumstances, different routines.
18:26
So your plan is your plan.
18:28
This is what happens here.
18:29
This is what works for us.
18:32
And you know, those get your family involved maybe once or
18:36
twice a week. They can talk to her on the phone
18:38
and you know, so she can continue adding words to her
18:42
word bank in her little brain.
18:44
But you reminded me that my son was three and he would
18:48
talk to me in Spanish and turn around and talk to his
18:52
dad in English. I mean,
18:53
that is, and I learned English when I was in kindergarten
18:58
all the way up to 12th grade.
19:00
So when I saw my three year old doing this,
19:02
I was like, oh my God,
19:03
this is amazing, Rosa.
19:05
They, and it sounds like you're doing what you're supposed to
19:11
do. I'm here to support you 100% and I love it
19:17
There's a lot of information and education out there.
19:21
The fact that you learn at 30 that means that we can
19:25
all learn a new language at any age.
19:28
And also remember this is your attitude,
19:31
the attitude you have towards raising a bilingual child is the attitude
19:36
that she's going to take.
19:37
So we are the best examples for them.

Gracias. Thank you guys.
20:27

20:29
Actually speaking of baby,
20:30
I have a picture I wanna show you.
20:31
So if you could pull that up,
20:33
please. Oh, you look familiar.
20:40
Well, forever haunt me.
20:41
This photo always pops up out of nowhere.
20:44
Ironically, you're the one that put it out there too.
20:46
You're the one that made the meme originally,
20:48
right? Well, just because everyone was talking about silver teeth
20:50
kids. So I was like,
20:51
oh I was one,
20:52
let me see if I could find my photo and it wasn't
20:55
supposed to be that big.
20:56
It was just for a freaking Mario Lopez saw it and then
21:00
every few weeks, a few months it circles back up or
21:03
bubbles. It's been years and it's still there.
21:06
So this picture does come up,
21:07
there's always mixed comments and people talking about how my parents didn't
21:12
raise me, right.
21:13
How they didn't love me.
21:16
There were some mean comments or even just like how sober teeth
21:20
kids are. Like,
21:21
the little Travieso that ends up today like they're just
21:25
up to no good up to.
21:26
No good. Yeah,
21:28
it was a little travia so it's pretty accurate on my side
21:31
Little Tambien. There's also like rumors and just in the
21:34
comments that it, they're bad for your health and like
21:37
some dentists don't even do it anymore.
21:39
They're like, no,
21:40
no, no, that's,
21:41
that's not happening. So to hopefully understand that better.
21:45
We have a pro joining us.
21:47
We have dental hygienist and champion for public health Amber la Vatos
21:51
straight from Texas joining us now.
21:53
Hi, Amber. Hey,
21:56
Amber. Thank you so much for joining us.
21:57
We have a ex silver teeth kid in the room with us
22:02
So I'm not an extrovert kid,
22:04
but I can tell you my experience with the dentist and maybe
22:08
what really some truths behind and some lies behind what you're hearing
22:13
So yeah, I'm pre as Mexican American.
22:16
My parents immigrated here before I was born.
22:19
I grew up low income.
22:20
We were trying to survive and I had really good parents,
22:24
but they just didn't know certain things and that's not really their
22:27
fault. So the first time I went to the dentist,
22:30
I was 13 years old and had holes in my molars and
22:34
I was in extreme pain that dentist told my mom I needed
22:38
root canals, which my parents couldn't afford.
22:41
So instead, my mom took me home,
22:43
we grind up Lavos clothes,
22:45
we would mix them with water and then I would stick them
22:47
into the holes in my tooth and then I would try to
22:49
sleep away the pain.
22:50
So since then, I have become a dental hygienist,
22:53
specifically a public health,
22:55
dental hygienist. I primarily work with underserved communities,
23:00
people who don't have insurance,
23:01
primarily Hispanic Latino Latin patients.
23:05
and focus on these types,
23:07
types of topics. Speaking more on that of like those myths
23:11
and those Latino stories that art and a primo has always said
23:14
is there actually something in the silver teeth that makes these
23:17
kids again, like more hyper or I don't know,
23:22
this is stigma, right?
23:23
Where they link to Travis.
23:25
So you know what I mean?
23:26
Like the silver teeth.
23:27
No, there's no like a correlation between somebody who has a
23:30
silver kid for tooth who is more hyperactive.
23:33
you know, maybe a child who eats a lot of
23:37
sweets is more prone to getting cavities when the cady becomes too
23:41
big. They need to remove more tooth structure and that tooth
23:44
becomes fragile and so to make that tooth stronger,
23:47
they put a cap on it.
23:48
That's the silver tooth crown.
23:50
So yes, a person child who eats more sweet,
23:54
eats more sugary, more carbs probably is more hyperactive,
23:58
right? You got that sugar rush,
24:00
but you also more likely to be prone to cavities which meant
24:04
like s makes you more prone to getting a silver tooth because
24:07
he had a bigger cavity.
24:08
I think the candy one was definitely why I had it and
24:16
everything. But I just wanna thank you so much Amber for
24:19
joining us and for giving us your point of view.
24:22
Find a good fight.
24:22
Like you said, the lack of education is definitely again a
24:25
big issue. And,
24:26
and where can we find you on social media?
24:28
Just so people can also,
24:29
you know, keep up to date with you and learn more
24:31
You can find me.
24:32
I'm at the Latina R DH which is registered dental hygienist.
24:38
Well, there you go.
24:39
Well, thank you so much again,
24:40
Amber and hopefully we'll talk soon.
24:46

24:48

24:59

25:01

25:02

25:07

25:11
