Asian Parenting Today
In 2006, the 3 parenting educators from Jenlia Maternal Services published their first parenting book. Asian Parenting Today was born from numerous requests by parents with whom they have worked with over the past decade. The book was written to specifically address the issues and concerns of Asian parents today
Asian parents today are often faced with the quandary of either subscribing to western practices or to follow the traditional customs of their mothers and grandmothers before them. The book addresses many of the very common childcare issues that parents today face, with special emphasis and respect to Asian cultural beliefs and practices. It provides real life questions and practical realistic solutions for new parents to help make their parenting experience in the important first year an enjoyable one.
The book is published in English and has since been translated into Mandarin as well.
