MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this paper was to review research on the parenting concerns faced by Asian Indian parents in the United States. This paper reviews issues such as the impact of cultural differences on Asian Indian parenting practices, dating norms that challenge the Asian Indian traditional practice of arranged marriages, autonomy and independence that affects the career choices of growing children, and the cultural stigma that is attached to seeking counseling services or support by Asian Indians. In addition, the paper proposes the development of a series of educational newsletters specifically designed to educate Asian Indian parents in the United States on these significant parenting concerns and offer recommendations for building positive parent-child relationships and lowering intergenerational conflicts. These newsletters will be provided to Asian Indian parents through the Indo American Great Plains (IAGP) organization in Fargo, North Dakota.
