I’m Japanese American. My husband is British from English and Welsh descent. We both grew up with distinct cultural identities and traditions. Being Fourth Generation American, I would say I had an American upbringing with a very strong Japanese influence.

So we incorporate both of our cultures into our children’s lives, in whatever way we can, sometimes even weirdly melding the two. And we hope to raise these Japanese British American children with a sense of appreciation for their background and from where they came. Here are just some of the things we do.

Yoga is a soothing way for toddlers to relieve stress and tension, and parents often find their children’s frustration is easier to deal with after they start doing yoga together.
