Sunday Funday Moment: El Paso mom’s new business ’Son Teach Me’ offers unique space for parents and kids to bond

El Paso, Texas-- One El Paso mom’s new business is helping create a space for children and their parents to bond.

“When I began with the idea many people were telling me that it's not going to work,” said Martha Reyes, owner of ‘Son Teach Me.’ “It’s been the complete opposite because El Paso has been a great support.”

Martha Reyes has been opening businesses since she was 18-years-old. Now at 29, Martha is proud to be the owner of a unique business that sits inside of El Paso’s Sunland Park Mall: ‘Son Teach Me.’

“It is a children’s play center for babies who are infant to 6 years of age.,” said Martha. “I decided to open this because I knew that a lot of children didn't have a center for themselves and this provides children and parents with a safe space to interact and meet new friends.”

Parents can book an appointment online and pay what they can whenever they head out to the center.

“It does not matter if you bring in 5 children or 6 children. I have a lot of families that bring in their grandparents to come in to watch the little ones. It’s “pay what you can” so every visit you pay the amount that you are able to pay,” said Martha.

‘Son Teach Me’ provides a safe space for parents and their children to bond through fun and games and it also provides families with the opportunity to shop for free at the community closet.

“This closet is full thanks to donations from families that come to the center,” said Martha. “Families can take home whatever it is they need, free of charge.”

The name for the center was inspired by Martha's almost 3-year-old son.

“I decided to name it ‘Son Teach Me’ because my son teaches me a lot,” said Martha. “And a lot of parents say the same thing about their children. They teach them a lot.”

Although business has been going great for Martha, she is hopeful that soon she can add more to her center.

“The only issue that I'm having right now is funding,” said Martha. “I am limited on the days that I am open. I want to add funding to add new employees and just offer more things and activities and classes for the kids and families.”

People can make monetary or in-kind (toys, books, ect.) donations to the center by clicking here.

Martha is also looking for people who are interested in a part-time job during the Summer. You can ask for more employment details by reaching out to Martha here.
