Raising children in a new country

Just today a colleague sent me a link to Raising Children in a New Country: an Illustrated Handbook. It is a very good resource to better work with children from different ethnic backgrounds and understand their cultures and traditions.  The handbook focus on parenting younger children and it covers five themes:

  • Nurture
  • Supervision/Protection
  • Structure/Limits
  • Discipline/Respect
  • Educational Participation

The handbook also includes a list of links to government documents, laws, and many other resources about child welfare and child protection.
