The foundation


We are the Educamos en Familia Foundation integrated into the Puñonrostro Foundation, a non-profit entity whose purposes have been declared of general interest. Educamos en Familia was created in 2014 by Carmen Serrat-Valera, a psychologist with a long career and wide recognition in her professional environment, who has directed it since then. We are supported by expert psychologists in different areas (communication, education, emotion management, human development...) with a long professional career in the clinical field and in the training of educators and parents.

We firmly believe that given the problems that our

children face today,  The best gift we can give them is an education based on values. For this reason, we have sought to give education a comprehensive approach to the person, generating content that helps parents acquire tools and resources to educate their children in effort, responsibility, honesty, coherence, and solidarity.

To teach them to pursue a meaningful life, to build moral character and to put into practice values that will allow them to lead a more rewarding and fulfilling life, as well as to contribute as conscious and responsible citizens to the general well-being of society.

All our content is based on the science of psychology.

Educating has never been an easy task, but we believe that today's parents face more challenges than ever.Furthermore, very often we have to navigate against the current because the family seems to be out of fashion. We want to help parents be aware, know how to choose and decide for themselves what they want for their children.  And don't be influenced by:


  • The bombardment of information lacking scientific bases and that often contradict each other.


  • Public figures, as well as media and entertainment media that sometimes promote anti-values such as materialism, individualism, violence, selfishness or frivolity.


  • The fears and anguish generated by the high expectations that we impose on ourselves and are imposed on us when it comes to educating.


  • The dissemination of currents of thought that attack the family and education in values.



​Our principles:

  1. We believe that parents are the backbone of the family, being one of the most influential models for their children and those responsible for transmitting to them a scale of values so that they become ethical and responsible citizens.

  2. We consider that the family is the ideal environment where human beings learn to relate to others, with themselves and with the world around them.

  3.  We understand by values the set of beliefs, convictions and ethical standards of a person that guide their way of thinking and behavior, exerting a beneficial influence on their mental, emotional and human well-being, as well as their relationships with others, with their environment and society.

  4. We maintain that both parents and children have the capacity to develop and learn at whatever stage of life they are in.

  5. We defend a comprehensive education in which parents, teachers and society collaborate together in the development of children and young people.


Nustr proyecto

Our project

Educating our children is one of the tasks with the greatest personal, family and social impact that we can perform. Although it is an exciting and rewarding activity, it also presents great difficulty and demand, especially if we pursue the promotion of values. It entails enormous responsibility and effort and, yet, we parents undertake this challenge without an instruction manual and without prior experience.


From this social need for training for education, the desire arises in the Foundation to support and accompany families and educators in this great challenge of learning to educate by educating ourselves.


The Foundation offers help and advice to parents and educators from an online platform: the Educamos en Familia website. We also collaborate with other institutions, both in Madrid by teaching courses and workshops in person, and in developing countries through collaboration agreements with local institutions.


We consider the emotional well-being of parents to be of great importance and we think that Mindfulness has widely demonstrated its effectiveness in combating the stress that colors our daily lives. So we have included it as an activity of our Foundation.


All sessions, instructional videos, can be seen on our YouTube channel.
