Parenting can be 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. 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.

Kim understands the unique challenges and opportunities that arise when you’re parenting in a culture different than the one in which you were raised. Her words are wise and just what you need to figure out what is best for your family!

—Jill Savage, author of Better Together: Because You’re Not Meant to Mom Alone

This is an insightful book, full of sound and practical advice. I highly reccommend it.

—Dr. Helen Mendes Love, MSW, author of Reflections on the Upsides of Aging

Kim gives invaluable insight on the intricacies of parenting in a more globalized and culturally-relevant world, while respecting tradition and heritage.

—Sam Louie, M.A., LMHC, author of Asian Shame and Addiction: Suffering in Silence

Humorous, yet educational, this book is a must read for any parent.

—Erika Olivares Sumner, Life & Wellness Coach, Mother of Three
