Raising International Children

 

Raising children abroad, in one country or several different ones, has a great impact on their life. Growing up abroad means to realize very early on that we are "different" from locals, that our family culture and language is different from the one of our neighbours, the community, our friends.

Knowing that our children will feel comfortable in groups with whom they share the same experience, the same languages, similar memories when it comes to habits, values and beliefs, is very important for parents, teachers etc. to know.
