Every year, thousands of Asians leave their countries and come to the U.S. in search of better opportunities for themselves and their families. In the process they leave their homeland physically but are still rooted in it culturally. They face the challenge of settling in a different society. In this new social set-up they not only deal with the predicament of adjusting according to the new norms, but also try to preserve their own culture and traditions.
Women play a significant role as caretakers of the family in Asian culture. In the process of raising their children they face numerous problems as mothers. This blog is a platform to generate a discussion about the cultural issues of Asian mothers who have lived their life in the east and are raising their children in the western world.
Let’s talk about our day-to-day challenges and help each other live a better life.
