The theme of the sixth event in the series “Me, Asian?!” is Asian parenting, a topic that has come up in every session so far! But is there such a thing as Asian parenting, and if yes what does it look like? How are Asian values transmitted across generations in families? To what extent do Asian parents who live in the Netherlands use the same parenting practices as the ones they grew up with in their heritage countries?
These questions will be addressed in two parts: (1) A discussion of research on Asian parenting in families in Asia and in the Asian diaspora in the West, using videos as starting points for the conversation with the audience; (2) A panel discussion with Asian parents from different backgrounds who will reflect on their parenting experiences from their childhoods, and their parenting choices as mothers and fathers of their own children. And we will of course as usual end with drinks and Asian snacks!
