Hello, I'm Winnis Chiang
I help Asian Americans to get along with, enjoy, and influence the people they love in spite of differences and conflicts by living out their faith through the Parenting ABC process.
About Parenting ABC
Parenting ABC is an organization dedicated to consulting, training and coaching Asian American couples and parents to make a difference in the lives of children, youth, and young adults.
Founded in the Silicon Valley in 2005, we help stressed-out and frustrated Asian American parents to understand and connect with their spouse and American Born children (ABC) so that they can get along with, enjoy each other, and feel confident and competent raising their kids successfully together as a team.
To break destructive cycles caused by expectation, value and culture differences, Parenting ABC focuses on helping Mandarin-, Cantonese- and English-speaking parents to (re-)connect by first practicing communication that helps, not hurt!
