'Where Are You From?' Identity as a Key to Parenting by 1.5 Generation Korean-New Zealand Migrants and Implications for Counselling
Kim, Hyeeun; Agee, Margaret Nelson
British Journal of Guidance & Counselling, v47 n1 p35-49 2019
In a qualitative study of the experiences of 1.5 generation Korean New Zealanders as parents, a notable finding was the significant part the participants' identity-related experiences as migrants played in shaping their parenting practices. Interviews were conducted with 18 Korean "Kiwis" (New Zealanders), colloquially referred to as "Kowis," who had arrived in New Zealand before 2002 as children or adolescents with their parents and were now married with children. Reflecting on the challenges of their migration and identity journeys enabled them to recognise their vulnerabilities and their advantages, and the multiple ways in which identity-related cultural conflicts and confusion influenced their parenting of their children. The implications are identified for further research and for counselling practice.
