“Raising children in a globally nomadic lifestyle is hard work, full of hidden pitfalls and often stressful – but it’s rewarding too. You’re giving your child an edge like no other – cultural understanding, multilingual communication and an open mindedness that surpasses the norm for their age groups. Here are our favourite titles, recommended by the expat community, to help you make the most of your unique experiences.”
The book has a strong theoretical component, aiming to be a “comprehensive guide to the often complex emotions expat kids face.” It gives parents the tools to help kids express their inner emotional world during a big transition like an international move. On the other hand, it’s also a very practical workbook, encouraging families to work through their emotions with various storytelling techniques.
There are books for just about every stage of the expat lifecycle: books for those who are thinking about moving abroad, for those who are already expats and trying to make sense of their worlds, for those who are raising Third Culture Kids, for those who are considering retiring abroad, and for those who are struggling with re-entry.
