International parenting

There is more than one way to be a good parent.

Your Passport to Parenting explores parenting ideas from around the world, providing stories and lessons that demonstrate how values-based parenting can help create meaningful bonds between you and your child, while teaching them to be kind, secure, and empathetic. 

From Australia, you will hear how an Aboriginal woman shares her culture and teaches children morals through stories. 

From Fiji, you will hear how Fijians teach their children to first care for others, then for themselves. 

From England, you will hear how a mother taught her children through lessons as a magistrate so she did not have to lecture. 

From Germany, you will hear how German culture teaches children independence. 

From South Africa, you will learn the power of greeting your children. 

From Hawaii, you will learn the importance of an extended family and respect for the land.

Plus, more parenting ideas from Scotland, Czechia, Austria, Denmark, Dominican Republic, New Zealand, and across the United States - some passed down from generation to generation. 

We have all heard it takes a village to raise a child. Your Passport to Parenting expands your village to cover nearly the entire planet. With this expanded village, you will find simple parenting ideas to help teach children values as well as ideas to help make parenting as much fun as being a kid. After you listen to Your Passport to Parenting, you’ll find parenting more meaningful and a bit easier.

Joanne Holbrook is a mother of two and spouse of a United States Army officer. She has lived and raised her family in South Africa, England, Germany, Australia, and across the United States. Born in South Africa and living half her life under the controlling apartheid government, she began to yearn for a better understanding of cultures outside her world. This experience, combined with the world travels that come with a military lifestyle, allowed Joanne to observe culture and parenting from multiple international perspectives and with a broader worldview. Joanne is an author, professional keynote speaker, parenting advocate, and entrepreneur, who, through her friendships, book, and speaking events, shares parenting stories to help build positive, values-based families around the world.

The book for people who don't read parenting books

What kept me hooked was Joanne's consistent flow of really great family ideas that she gathered from her travels as a military wife and mom. I loved hearing the stories she gathered from so many diverse cultures. There are so many things I now want to take for a test drive in my own home! For instance, my husband and I have a set of values we have built our relationship upon. But why hadn’t we thought do that same exercise for our blended family?! It's a great read--she's not preachy. And it might even be better to listen to!

Thank you so much for writing this!

Wonderful, Insightful Stories

I have already implemented some of the practices mentioned in this well thought out, superbly written book. The writer does not come off as a know-it-all. She is genuine as she talks about not only her successes, but her struggles as a parent as well. Being in the military myself, I have travelled around just as much as the author, but I was single and had no interest in knowing about how children were raised in different countries. I am retired now, but also married with a child. There is no way I will get a chance to travel and gain all of the cultural insights that are in this book...such a wonderful collection of stories and lessons! This is a definite read for any parent out there...new, seasoned young and old alike. I am a 49 year old parent of a 5 year old and a 3rd generation military father. I exhibit every bad habit mentioned in the book. I was not able to see that until this book came out. I truly believe that it was the unpretentious, straight from the heart approach by the author that helped me really look at what I was doing. I am not perfect...none of us are, but I am trying. Thank you very much Joanne Holbrook for this spectacular collaboration of experiences!

Not your typical parenting book: This is a MUST HAVE

If there is one parenting book that needs to sit on your bookshelf....it's Your Passport To Parenting!

The author uses her platform to share stories and experiences with families from all around the world. It's not a "how to" book, instead it provokes thought and discussion on different parenting styles and possibly different ways to look at parenting.

Parenting is HARD and the author understands that there is more than one way to parent. Buy the book....you'll be happy you did!

Amazing read!!

This book not only speaks to a parents heart, but I would venture to say that anyone who picks it up will walk away changed. Listening to the warm voice of the author brought the pages to life and allowed me to picture things in my own life and the life of of my children that I real are and have related to. 100% recommend this book to any and everyone.

Loved it!

Fantastic book! The author is so soothing and calming to listen to- I looked forward to my designated audible time to jump back into the book. She offers easy to implement parenting thoughts and tips. I loved listening to her tales from countries and cultures all around the world. She couches it in easy to understand language and real life stories that seem so simple to add into your day-to-day life. I will definitely be revisiting this book and recommending it to all my mom (and dad) friends.

Your Passport to Parenting Review

What I love about this book is how Joanne tells her story with honesty and humor and her voice is clear and easy to listen to. I have learnt so many valuable tools because of this. As a mother and wife I can relate to her and her experiences. I felt that she took me on a journey around the globe and what an experience it was!

Great taxi mum book!!!

Great taxi mum book!!!
There are so many “parenting” books out there telling you how to do better. What I love about this book is that this is an opportunity to see that as parents, mums, people no matter where we are in the world we all face the same challenges and we can learn from each other if we make the time to listen.
This book felt like I was having a chat over a cup of tea.
Loved it and am so inspired and grateful to Joanne for sharing her wisdom and all the wisdom she has learnt from others.

Great book!

When I became a parent I remember being told things like "no one knows what they're doing; we learn along the way; it's not like there's a manual" and all that is true, but it is books such as this one that help us see other perspectives and give us new things to implement into our family lives that make the adventure all the more fun! Thank you Joanne for bringing these stories into our lives and enriching our parenting journey!

Bringing joy to parenting

Thank you Joanne Holbrook. In the minefield of doubt and judgement that parenting has become today, this book provides a breathe of fresh air! With helpful, touching stories from around the world Joanne really does show “there is more than one way to be a good parent.”

Great words of wisdom

I have loved listening to this book. All the different stories that Joanne has shared from all over the world with the different ways of seeing the potential in children, supporting how children can grow in their imaginations.

I love with each chapter there is such a positive tool to implement with your child to support The parent and the child with helping you move forward.

If you want to create a better connection with your child give yourself new tools that are so refreshing I can’t recommend this book highly enough Joanne is an amazing woman very lucky to know her first hand and I have been implementing her tools and I found them to be so beneficial with my daughter it’s a must read. Thank you Joanne x
