In this article, the authors opt for building a descriptive route of analysis dealing with the concept of "Rearing guidelines" and its content, since in order to talk about alternate rearing practices, that is to say, relating to indigenous and afro groups, it is necessary to clarify that in the interest of Eurocentrism, the knowledge of modern Western science has been privileged, and the created and reproduced knowledge by the aforementioned groups has been excluded, forgetting that they are also part of the dogma of valid knowledge. Therefore, in order to understand the wealth of others forms of knowledge and/or decolonization of knowledge, it is necessary to know and to respect the worldviews of the silenced voices, since their speeches have been subordinated and/or mediatized by others without allowing them to make them known from their own voice, from its epistemic, ethical, and political places. Then, the idea is to supplement the Western episteme with other episteme.
