Today on the show, we’re talking about raising children abroad, specifically as Third Culture Kids.
'TCKs' are people raised in a culture different to that of their parents, and the country named on their passport.
My guest, American Rachel Jones, is a mum of three TCKS. She left the USA with her husband and their young twins to work in northern Somaliland, and later Djibouti, where she still lives.
So what’s it like raising your kids in a country that’s so different to your own? How does the experience influence their development, and shape them as adults? And what challenges are you likely to encounter along the way? Rachel’s going to share her insights, which she hopes will help other parents create a thriving family culture while living internationally.
