Expat children and expat parents

Raising expat children and entering transnational parenthood have their own difficulties and pitfalls. E.g.

  • Expat care arrangements and expat child-care arrangements questioning the gender aspects of transnational parenthood
  • Being/feeling unfamiliar with the schooling system of your expat child, schooling being very different from their parents experiences, involving completely different systems
  • ‘Typical’ expat kid problems and even an Expat child syndrome
  • A ‘special’ child, whose development is atypical, creates its own special questions and worries, especially when on unfamiliar ground.


Early signs might be:

  • Emotional withdrawal of the child
  • Conduct problems
  • Apparent emotional problems, like sadness or irritability even indifference
  • School problems
