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.

Often times, we believe or we don’t, dads have lived a life before we started. They are pro at things we are not even aware of. The truth remains, he listened to vinyl before you did. He drank whiskey before you did. He had a mustache before you did. Admit it: your dad was a hipster before you were!

It’s high time we celebrate this fact. Vintage photos of real dads back in the day—in their short shorts and tight tees playing arcade games—accompany snark captions that at once tip a cap to Dad’s glory days and poke fun at modern hipsters. Featuring tons of never-before-seen things, this gives a great feel for dads, hipsters, and those who love to tease them!

Most of the time, we don’t pay enough heed to the extensive knowledge transfer that our dad are ready to do at all times. For us, that is indeed too much information to be shared. The value of it is not seen big at most times. But the fact won’t change. His experiences only make you better person. You don’t want to burn your fingers and then learn. Here is someone who volunteers to save you the horror, by sharing so much in advance that you are very less likely to get hurt.

Not that we are at it, I would like to talk about this book too. It is so very hysterical. Each picture and description is funnier than the one before. I have a very high bar when it comes to humor and wit. You either got it or you don’t. This book and author’s got it. Clever. A laugh riot. Genius. I bought this book for Father’s Day and he absolutely loved it. The best part is that it led him to dig up old pictures to show he was just as cool. Priceless. I think most dads found it almost as entertaining as I did. Of course, he insisted that the guys in it were from an older time than he was.. But still, some very funny stuff.
Thus, it can be concluded that daddies have been around, been there done that. Gone through stuff that we never would if we genuinely buy what he has to say. He never wants to set us up for a failure. He sincerely wishes that we succeed. Of course, one thing he expects us to do is try over and over again. However, that is just a medium for us to do good in life. Learning from mistakes works for all!

Talk to Bill and others about their experiences raising bi-cultural Japanese-American kids.
