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.
Having just written about how robots can teach us kids a new fundamental R in the Reading, wRriting and aRithmetic skill set – pRogRamming … there’s also not only a need to look ahead but to look back.
My daddy was wondering out loud to mommy about why we are still learning the King James Version of the Bible at my school.
I wonder out loud what he is talking about. But anyway …
On the way to school each morning … abt a 20 minute commute, IF I get ready early enough daddy will let me watch something on his Samsung Galaxy super phone.
I watch My Littlest Pet Shop, Strawberry Shortcake, My Little Pony and such cool stuff.
Well, don’t you know. One of the ponies from Equestria found herself sent back in time to do something or rather and all of a sudden an old demon queen began talking to Twinkie Pie using Ye and Thou and Thine and such strange words.
But … I KNEW what she was talking about. Because those are the same words we run into when we read the King James Bible sometimes. How cool is that?!
And it makes total sense … to not only look ahead but to also look behind, too.
Talk to Bill and others about their experiences raising bi-cultural Japanese-American kids.
