Phrases that I search in Google pretty frequently are “Japanese mommy blogs”, “Parents teaching children Japanese”, and the like. I am almost always disappointed that I can’t find anything on the web! I KNOW there must be hundreds (thousands?) of people out there who are trying to teach their children Japanese like I am. I know that the number of Hafu Japanese people are rapidly growing. There are a lot of websites about Japan in general, but hardly any about children and Japanese.
Asian mommies from other countries are blogging though. Here are the links if you are interested! It is fun to read about their experiences raising bilingual children… our languages may be different but our experience are similar.
Kimchi Mamas: “a blog written by a group of women mothering Korean American kids”
Hapa Mama: “a mixed bag of musings on the care and feeding of a mixed-race, part Asian family”
Bicultural Mama: “I am a first generation Chinese-American married to an originating-around-the-Mayflower Caucasian. Together we’re raising our two year old daughter, also known as my muse”
(Funny all our websites end in “mama”!)
Any others out there that you know of?
