Publisher's Summary

International parenting

There is more than one way to be a good parent.

Your Passport to Parenting explores parenting ideas from around the world, providing stories and lessons that demonstrate how values-based parenting can help create meaningful bonds between you and your child, while teaching them to be kind, secure, and empathetic. 

From Australia, you will hear how an Aboriginal woman shares her culture and teaches children morals through stories. 

From Fiji, you will hear how Fijians teach their children to first care for others, then for themselves. 

From England, you will hear how a mother taught her children through lessons as a magistrate so she did not have to lecture. 

From Germany, you will hear how German culture teaches children independence. 

From South Africa, you will learn the power of greeting your children. 

From Hawaii, you will learn the importance of an extended family and respect for the land.

Plus, more parenting ideas from Scotland, Czechia, Austria, Denmark, Dominican Republic, New Zealand, and across the United States - some passed down from generation to generation. 

We have all heard it takes a village to raise a child. Your Passport to Parenting expands your village to cover nearly the entire planet. With this expanded village, you will find simple parenting ideas to help teach children values as well as ideas to help make parenting as much fun as being a kid. After you listen to Your Passport to Parenting, you’ll find parenting more meaningful and a bit easier.

Joanne Holbrook is a mother of two and spouse of a United States Army officer. She has lived and raised her family in South Africa, England, Germany, Australia, and across the United States. Born in South Africa and living half her life under the controlling apartheid government, she began to yearn for a better understanding of cultures outside her world. This experience, combined with the world travels that come with a military lifestyle, allowed Joanne to observe culture and parenting from multiple international perspectives and with a broader worldview. Joanne is an author, professional keynote speaker, parenting advocate, and entrepreneur, who, through her friendships, book, and speaking events, shares parenting stories to help build positive, values-based families around the world.

Loved it!

Fantastic book! The author is so soothing and calming to listen to- I looked forward to my designated audible time to jump back into the book. She offers easy to implement parenting thoughts and tips. I loved listening to her tales from countries and cultures all around the world. She couches it in easy to understand language and real life stories that seem so simple to add into your day-to-day life. I will definitely be revisiting this book and recommending it to all my mom (and dad) friends.

Absolutely a must read!

I urge everyone with children, no matter their age, to read or listen to this book! It's a conglomerate of parenting stories from around the world, sharing their differences and their amazing cultures. I only wish this book was around when my kids were little, but there's so much to take away from this book, regardless of your children's ages. I truly treasure this book and it's author. Thank you, Joanne, for sharing these stories with the world.
