Expat Family Connection

Living an international life and raising kids abroad is amazing … and it can get intense! Being so far away from loved ones, the constant rounds of goodbyes, piecing together a cohesive education at multiple international schools, the eventual transition to university with its own brand of culture shock … and that’s only a few of the factors adding complexity for globally mobile families. I’m on a mission to raise a healthier generation of Third Culture Kids (TCKs) - and the parents who raise them! That means making sure you know the pitfalls to avoid, and giving you practical measures that really help

Living an international life and raising kids abroad is amazing … and it can get intense! Being so far away from loved ones, the constant rounds of goodbyes, piecing together a cohesive education at multiple international schools, the eventual transition to university with its own brand of culture shock … and that’s only a few of the factors adding complexity for globally mobile families. I’m on a mission to raise a healthier generation of Third Culture Kids (TCKs) - and the parents who raise them! That means making sure you know the pitfalls to avoid, and giving you practical measures that really help. I’ll draw on my experience raising 3 TCKs, reading and research, experiences of friends and colleagues, including many international school teachers, counselors, seasoned coaches, artists and others doing fantastic work to ease the lives of expats around the globe. I believe we’re stronger together. Join me for a heart to heart, full of warmth and compassion... for you and for me… because honestly I’m figuring it out as I go along, just like most parents!
