Walk this World with My Children—Parenting under Globalization

Under globalization, our next generation is faced with challenges of a cross-cultural and cross-regional nature. In a world with dwindling resources and where people are becoming more anxious about living, our fate is increasingly determined by our characters. It is, therefore, important for parents to double efforts in attending to their children's living and learning while nurturing their global perspectives and positive characters; parents should provide their children with care and guidance at their various stages of growth.

Walk This World with My Children—Parenting Under Globalization is the companion book for parents in the contemporary world to master effective parenting strategies, enabling them to face the challenges of globalization together with their children. The author, Ms. Kam Oi-ping, serves as the Principal of the International Kindergarten of the 75-year-old Yew Chung. She has contributed in recent years to various newspapers and educational magazines drawing on her rich experience of more than 20 years in nurturing young children. Her writings have won high acclaim and are collected and re-arranged into this book of three sections—"Parents", "Learning" and "Living". Topics range from the practices of early childhood education theories to the steps of operating games and activities. The rich and practical discussions aim at offering parents or would-be parents insights into child rearing and parenting.
