Our Specialty: Immigrant Families
First Generation American
Living with immigrant parents and being a first generation immigrant child is exactly like a melting pot. You have individuals in the household who are in different stages of acculturation and assimilation. I don't know about your household, but mine is a combination of three different ethnic languages plus English- for good measure. Children have switches that needs to come on and off depending on where they are at the moment. This level of emotional and psychological self regulation is important in immigrant families because children must behave in accordance with their current physical location. The same behavior that may be appropriate among peers is definitely not going to fly at home and it better be tucked far away during religious gatherings. Although functional and tolerant, living in an immigrant family is a juggling act that is naturally stressful on most first gen Americans.
The Life of First Generation & Immigrant American
We all come from somewhere. While some fit into the American mainstream culture so perfectly that you can barely notice, others stand out like statues. In reality however, "fitting in" physically is only a small piece of the puzzle. As an immigrant, I understand the struggles all too well. I can relate with the emotional and psychological conflicts that consistently occurs in the mind as first generation Americans attempt to balance who we are within our families and who we need to be for the community to "accept" us. I have resolved that immigrant children and young adults no longer have to struggle and suffer in silence.GET STARTED
