Description:

"Through her own stories and interviews with other immigrant families, Masha Rumer paints a realistic and compassionate picture of what it’s like for immigrant parents raising a child in America while honoring their cultural identities. Parenting with an Accent incorporates a diverse collection of voices and experiences, giving listeners an intimate look at the lives of many different immigrant families across the country. Using empirical data, humor, and on-the-ground reportage, Rumer offers interviews with experts on various aspects of parenting as an immigrant, including the challenges of acculturation, bilingualism strategies, and childcare. She visits a children’s Amharic class at an Ethiopian church in New York, a California vegetable farm, a Persian immersion school, and more. Deeply researched yet personal, Parenting with an Accent centers immigrants and their experiences in a new country—emphasizing how immigrants and their children remain an integral part of America’s story."
