Extensive linguistic research and theorising relating to maintaining the family heritage, as bilingual or multilingual family in differing language contexts, is currently available. Substantial research beneficially explores approaches to multilingual parenting, outcomes for individuals through parent and child perspectives, among linguistic and social realms of being multilingual in differing contexts. Personal experiences as emotive ways of reasoning, actions, and motive for sustaining one's heritage in a differing context are partially considered, but the cognitive-affective dimension could be more comprehensively explored. This paper conveys research methodology of parents' subjective sense for sustaining their heritage, as situated and unique for individuals through cultural-historical psychology elements. A cultural-historical framework provides a dynamic and multi-faceted scope of parent's subjective sense of self, for reasoning and approaches to sustaining their heritage with family. Construction of subjective perspectives involves the temporal motion of past to present, to enlighten motive and ideals for the present and future. Narrative analysis methodologies evidencing "perezhivanie" represent individuals' subjective configurations with individuals' contemporary and transpiring development of the subjective sense of self. This study associates Vygotsky's original "perezhivanie" conceptualisation and contemporary advances of subjectivity to cognise the intellectual-affective affiliation for motive substantiated through narrative analysis to show human subjective sense in motion.
