Yes we Asian and Asian Americans have strong family values, but that often comes out of duty rather than delight. For those of us who are young parents, the question to consider is this: when our children grow up, with they love being with us, or will it feel like an obligation?
Dr. Jessica Cho shares about how to grow relationships by practicing emotional availability during those early years of parenting young children, and how that’s so valuable in the long run. And then when those children become adults, the’ll love being with their parents, and vice versa, full of joy and delight and obliged to visit their parents out of duty.
