A Parent’s Perspective

Dennis, Jane and their children Summer, Ty and Theo

Dennis on his children growing up within two cultures.

I think two experiences can only mould, make the person stronger and enrich their own experiences. If you’re lucky to experience that outside of your own ethnic group then that’s great.  But a lot of people, who don’t get the opportunity till too much later on in life… by that time their own experiences will be entrenched. The brain’s already wired to think in a certain way.

Going outside our home, on our street and the surrounding streets- there are a number of mixed couples.  And that’s what I like.  I like that I can go to the park and I know I’ll see a mixed race child,  the dad’s there, the mum’s there, and you kind of get those experiences.
