Bill Belew has raised 2 bi-cultural kids, now 34 and 30. And he and his wife are now parenting a 3rd, Mia, who is 8.
I spent a couple of hours going through the blog Bicultural Mama this morning.
It’s part of my homework on my own blog. But when it’s fun, it doesn’t feel like work.
I write about growing up biculturally. But I am still little.
Bicultural Mama is not. She’s been around for a while. And she has written almost 450 posts! I can hardly count that high. I sometimes get confused around 15, 16 …
Bicultural Mama writes about bicultural sell it bitties. (Ed. Celebrities)
Daddy says I don’t need to be a celebrity to be called pretty and to be loved. But it’s okay to see how other people have become good at what they do and are admired by other people. They are called rolly pollies or something like that. (Ed. Role Models).
Bicultural Mama introduces tips for kids – like what happens if you are getting cowed. (Ed. Bullied.)
I know what to do if I get bullied, like from my teacher at my Chinese-American kindergarten.
I tell my daddy. And he takes care of it. He had a long talk with the head teacher at school this morning. And she listened to my daddy. Go, daddy!
Speaking of school. Recess is over. I’d better get back inside before my teachers think I am watching Netflix.
