“There are a lot of workbooks in China and mainstream USA. but not about Chinese-American kids,” said Citania Tam, a licensed clinical social worker who worked as a consultant for the book. “Immigrant parents and kids that grow up here have language, generational and cultural gaps,” she told the SF Examiner.

It’s believed those cultural gaps can lead to mental health issues. You can read more about the topics addressed in the book and hear from parents talk about some of the issues they face in the SF Examiner.
