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.

Headquartered in the Silicon Valley, 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 through the "Parenting ABC process" designed by Winnis Chiang.

To break destructive cycles caused by expectation, value and culture differences, Parenting ABC focuses on helping Mandarin-, Cantonese- and English-speaking parents to reconnect with their American Born Chinese children and teenagers with communications that helps, not hurt!
