This paper analyzes the child-rearing strategies of Sino-African familes in China and delves into how and why parents make decisions about their children’s citizenship, education, and future country of residence. The authors argue that Sino-African parents are influenced by numerous factors ranging from socio-economic status, familial sypport, religion, culture, and structural constraints in China to make their child rearing decisions, dispelling notions of Sino-African parenting as a monolith.
