UCA-IL Presents
Parenting Conference

Asian Parents, American Children

Time:   April 22, Sat, 2017 ( 8:00am – 4:30pm)

Location: Hyatt Place Rosemont, 6810 Mannheim Rd, Rosemont, IL 60018

Program:  Lectures and discussions

Parenting in a new country and new culture, or being a child of the first generation immigrant parents, is a new and uncharted territory for many of us. We are excited to offer this unique opportunity to see how we are going to learn together as a community from experts and other parents who care about our next generation; also to learn together in our homes, between our first generation immigrant parents and second generation kids to create the happier, more harmonious and successful children and families!

It takes a village to raise a child. We don’t have all of the answers, but in the grace of God, together, step by step, we will find our way; step by step, we can and will work to make our families happier and to make our community stronger yet!

Respectfully Yours,

Steve Hugh
Chairman, UCA-IL Board

 

Issues we all face to a certain degree in our homes

  • My teenager son doesn’t want to talk to me, 我的十几岁的儿子不想跟我说话。
  • My daughter is dating with someone I disapprove of, 我女儿约会的人我们不同意。
  • My child doesn’t have motivation to work hard, 我的孩子没有勤奋努力的动力。
  • Boys / male young adults seem to have more pressure compared to girls. 男孩子似乎承受的压力更大
  • My child doesn’t want to try new things and has low self-esteem, 我的孩子不想尝试新事物,自尊心低下。

Do you find yourself asking the following questions?

  • How can I get my parents to understand me more?”   如何才能让我的父母理解我?
  • Are my parents and I even speaking the same language? 怎么父母好像跟我都不是一个语言在沟通?
  • Why do my parents not have reasonable expectations of me? 为何父母对我不能有合理的期盼?
