The day is here. My blogging work that began earlier this year has culminated in introducing this book to the real world. More of my insides will be spilled out. But hopefully, it’s to encourage parents all over. East Meets West Parenting is not just an entertaining memoir, or just a resource book for parenting best practice, but also a thoughtful dialogue on diversity, human nature, race, and social justice issues.
Please take a look at the back cover:
Parenting can the the toughest journey a person ever makes. The author transparently addresses the difficult parts of this role while pointing us to some practical ways of thinking and relating with children to lighten the responsibility. This book is as fascinating as Amy Chua’s Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother memoir, as relatable as Jen Hatmaker’s Christian foibles, as uplifting as Iyanla Vanzant’s inspirational messages, and backed by solid research of the likes of Brene Brown, the author has weaved her deeply personal life lessons from Eastern and Western cultures to help her children and yours thrive. By deftly combining four of America’s favorite genres into one enjoyable read, the author does not force us to compare and choose one world view over another, but honors all.
