How To Live Life as a Transracial Family

Globalization—This is a famous business statement that basically means growing your business through tapping of international markets outside your own homebase of operation. This also could mean tapping international suppliers, 3rd party outsourcing companies, and other potential beneficial business process outsourcing that can contribute to the growth of the many aspects of business. Globalization has been pursued by many, resisted by some, according to each of their own independent and unique credence and contentions.

On the other hand, globalization can also be used in more ways than just business. Take immigration of nationals to foreign countries, for example. With the immigration of people of one race to another country of a different race, both social and cultural interactions exist. With this exciting opportunity, a myriad of opportunities present themselves to the members of both races, including the opportunity to love, procreate, and build a transracial family. Here are a number of ways to enjoy life as a head or member of any transracial family.

  1. Keep in mind that no matter what your ethnicity and mixture of races is, you’re still humans. You’re not a criminal, so there is nothing to be ashamed or embarrassed about. You are working to provide for your family, and you’re doing it in the most honest of manners, without cheating or taking advantage of anyone. You live and have a family together for no other reason but love. The truth is, you are one of the luckiest ones to experience great love in spite of evident differences.
  2. Foster awareness in your family. Since you have different races, traditions and cultures, it will extremely help if you let each other, and most especially your kids know about the differences in your cultures. This will not only make them aware of the differences, but also make them better understand and accept their unique situation compared to others in their own social environment. This ensures that whatever “attacks” they get from within their social environment, they can easily digest and justify the negative harassments.
  3. Network and spend time with families of different trans-racial families. This will provide some “normalcy” in the perspective of your kids, most especially. Having some bonding time with other trans-racial families can also give some relief in terms of stress that could come from always standing out. One of the many more important aspects of spending time with families of the same situation is that it can provide you with a very good support system. Should anything unfortunate happen, the people who are most likely to help are the people who understand your situation, or the people who have already gone through those situations.
  4. Whatever happens, it is important to build on your family. Spend lots of quality time with your family. This will ensure that the foundation that holds the family is strong, and it will pass on through to the members of the family, to their individual characters when they deal with the real world, outside the comforts of your home.
