We are the Church-Going Christian Chinese family with Anglo-Saxon ancestry. Kids voluntarily work at church, we make it part of the family routine. ( We do by our-self at first.)
Majorly in English spoken, less in Chinese spoken in home but we can only if necessary. One of the family rule is the English spoken kids need to practice in Chinese on dinner table at home, versus the Chinese spoken kids need to practice speaking English in home, joyfully and dramatically to improve their bilingual skills in daily life.
We also keep authentic Chinese foods as our main foods in the family. The kids come from China wouldn't worry about any dietary barriers.
With psychology knowledge, we also play family game of KPI (Key Performance Indicator) voluntarily with excellent rewards for kids!
Also, with own experience of universities in United States, we are the parents able to provide professional tutoring for college preparation in detail of SAT, ACT.. etc.
Please don't hesitate to get in touch in the meantime !
