Meet Cross-Cultural Mama

I am from Germany and met my Chinese husband during my China exchange year in University.After two long years in a long-distance relationship I came back to Shanghai in 2004 on a one-way ticket and with a 20kg suitcase. Me and my husband got married in 2006, and our son was born here in Shanghai in December 2008. This is my sixth year in Shanghai, so I am not a newbie, but this year I have embarked on one of my biggest China adventures yet – moving in with my Chinese in-laws so I can go back to work full time as a Relocation Consultant.

This is my sixth year in Shanghai, so I am not a newbie, but this year I have embarked on one of my biggest China adventures yet – moving in with my Chinese in-laws so I can go back to work full time as a Relocation Consultant. Will the culture shock finally hit me?! Find out in this blog. It will cover topics on cross-cultural parenting, bi-cultural kids, and any funny or thought-provoking events in my daily life. Hopefully it will be the basis for promoting understanding between different cultures. After all there is so much to learn from each other.

  1. Good luck with your in-laws!!! I know my husband couldn’t handle that. He is a typical American and I’m Chinese. But I find myself more and more like him nowadays.

  2. I get on very well with my chinese in laws. We lived with them in Japan for almost 6months before we got our own place. Now in Shanghai, living with them again and i get meals cooked and laundry is taken care of. We are very well looked after. Hope your In laws are just as good!
