Abstract:  The Asianadian is a quarterly publication which features stories, history, news and cultural material for Asians living in Canada. In this special issue, (Vol. 2, no. 2, 1979) the magazine looks at the experiences of children through articles dealing with a broad range of issues. Along with the usual tensions of growing up, Asian children in Canada must also deal with the misunderstandings arising from conflicting cultural values. The natural struggle for identity during childhood and adolescence is thus intensified by the fact that the world within the home and the world outside the home are often diametrically opposed.

The Asianadian child also has the rare opportunity to learn and experience a new understanding and tolerance for other Asians. Such a situation would be difficult, if not impossible, to achieve overseas because of the traditional xenophobia of most Asian societies.

The life and experiences of Asian children is also described in poetry, music, interviews, dialogues, cartoons and articles written about children and by children.
