Rate this:
Valuable teaching moments and life lessons are illustrated in a personal and colorful story told by a successful immigrant parent. Immigrants struggle with two cultures and so do their children. How do they mesh the two? An American Journey teaches immigrant parents life lessons to convey to their children in easy to understand and simple English, with examples dealing with almost every facet of their children's lives. The chapters deal with issues that are critical to immigrants: faith, values, family, marriage, home, education, and friends. The freedom they wanted to enjoy in the U.S is often the very thing immigrants blame for the conflicts with their children, who struggle to adhere to their parent's wishes and also experience the freedoms their friends enjoy. Practical advice is given based on personal experiences.
