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.

Kids who become dads face lot of anxiety in their lives as they are constantly perplexed about planning their family life. They are themselves in their adoloscenece mostly and they are uncertain about their future and their kids. They constantly try to learn from their peers with no proper planning most of the times and struggle to meet their financial obligations to the family.  They are themselves financially strapped in a lot of cases thus they find it tough to make both ends meet. Kids grow up in an uncertain atmosphere often followed by fear and anxiety.  They also don’t have full time jobs and they work part time to meet their financial needs which are not self sufficient in most cases.

They are constantly caught up in a financial mess as they are disorganized in most cases. Their kids usually do not get the right schooling for a good future and are not born and raised with wisdom, care and proper planning. They usually end up being mediocre students in school and college without any proper direction. They also tend to fight with their wives who are themselves teens and have no proper idea of how to raise a family and manage finances. They usually don’t pay lot of attention to raise their kids, as they are stuck with meeting their own needs.

They are not able to complete their education mostly and end up in low skilled labor which might not be an ideal six figure job that you would expect from a college grad in order for themselves to be raising their children in a healthy financial atmosphere. They also lack wisdom and mostly caught be quarrels and are therefore not able to impart the right set of social skills to their children and usually their children don’t have the right mental make up to make it big in the harsh competitive world that they are exposed to.

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