You and your spouse have just been screened for that important posting overseas. Now it's all systems go. But HOLD IT! Who screened the children? Raising happy, well-adjusted children is always a challenge for parents, regardless of where they live. ...
But overseas, parenting issues are magnified because traditional life supports are absent. Parents, trust your instincts. But first, read this book, because it offers sound advice on some critical issues, such as: Do your children have a learning disability that won't be catered to by an international school? Are you setting them up for loss of self-esteem or an unsuccessful adjustment? Are you helping them to appreciate and discriminate among the new experiences, and relate them to what they know about their own culture? Robin Pascoe, author of Culture Shock-A Parent's Guide, knows what it's like to be a traveling wife and mother. Her children have been on the move since they were born, and her family has lived in a community of traveling families. The advice in this book is the result of her cumulative experience, as well as consultation with child psychologists.
