Bringing Families Closer Together
We believe with our hearts that bringing families closer together will bring the world closer together.
Growing up, I didn't know how to talk to my mom and dad. We had a broken and distant relationship for over twelve years.
Rebuilding my relationship with my parents—confronting the guilt of having mistreated them, seeing them as human, and showing up in the ways I have always wanted—has been the most important journey I have ever gone on.
I wanted to get to know my mom and dad before it was too late and co-created Parents Are Human to help you do the same.
Let's go on this journey together, one question at a time.
Our Community Translators Make It Possible
Parents Are Human is a community-created card game. Each bilingual deck wouldn't exist without the help of our community translators, who have generously volunteered their time and energy to ensure that we honor the unique nuances of each language and culture. These humans are the reason families around the world are now able to start priceless conversations in their mother tongue.
When any languages reaches 50 requests, we'll make it! Leave your email and we'll notify you as soon as we launch it. Vote for your language to be translated earlier.
Help thousands of new families around the world play Parents Are Human in your mother tongue. Apply below to join our Translation Team. We'll honor your contribution forever.
We need your help! Whether you just want to share a few ideas over a call or take the lead on one of our projects—your time, energy, & resources are treasured deeply.
We Care About Mother Earth & Future Generations
We're small, but we can still make a difference by consciously choosing environmentally friendly options when we can, even though it can sometimes cost a lot more. Here are some of the things we're doing to protect our one home called Earth.
We redesigned our game so that it would last for years to come. Our sturdy two-part box is made from 1200 GSM cardboard and laminated with a velvety soft matte finish that we think you'll fall in love with.
Everything is recyclable—our cards, boxes, thermal labels, bubble wrap and shrink wrap. We reduced waste wherever possible and use reusable & recyclable bubble mailers made by EcoEnclose as often as we can.
Instead of using traditional petroleum-based ink, our games are printed using ink made from soybean oil & organic pigments. We use high quality Pantone colors to give you the most vibrant, gorgeous colors.
I hired my mom, Mary Lam, and dad, Francis Lam after they had to retire early due to covid and other health complications. They now hand-pack and deliver every order to the post office. With each deck comes our love, prayers, and warmest wishes from my family to yours.
I spent the last few years healing a broken relationship I had with my immigrant parents for over a decade and now I'm on a mission to help people around the world connect deeply with their loved ones.
If you're curious to learn more about my journey, I spent hundreds of hours documenting the raw and real challenges I went through so you can learn from my mistakes.
Thank you for being a part of the Parents Are Human story.
