This first chapter introduces the concept of transcendent parenting and how it emerges out of the media-rich household in Asia. It defines transcendent parenting—what constitutes it and how it is manifested in parenting practices through always on, always available mobile media. It then covers the landscape of media use in urban middle-class households in Asia, from China to South Korea to Vietnam, with a focus on Singapore. This is followed by a discussion on typical media-use patterns throughout the child’s life, from preschool to emerging adulthood. It ends with an outline of the remaining book chapters.

Keywords:   transcendent parenting, parental mediation, mobile media, cloud computing, mobile apps, Asian households, Singapore, urban middle class
