Expatriate parents face special challenges, in addition to all the normal challenges of parenthood.
Culture, family history, extended family, languages, religion, values, and principles, all are taken for granted in our home country. But expatriates often find themselves reexamining and questioning virtually one of these issues, and parents even more so.
What IS culture, anyway?
Is it a group and social concept? Or is it an individual choice?
Is it something we carry with us? Does it change as we move across borders and through time and space? Or is it a foundation that never - ever - changes?
Csilla Somogyi comes to grips with these questions and more.
