about

Over 200 million people currently live abroad; more than 50 million are temporary residents, intending to return to their country of origin. Misunderstood explores the impact international life can have on the children of such families - while they live overseas, when they return, and as they mature into adults. Similarities in their shared experiences (regardless of the different countries in which they have lived) create a safe space of comfort and understanding. Tanya Crossman introduces this space - the Third Culture - through the personal stories of hundreds of individuals. Whether you grew up overseas, are raising children overseas, or know a family living abroad, Misunderstood will equip you with insights into the international experience, along with practical suggestions for how to offer meaningful care and support.

Editorial Reviews

"If I were moving overseas with my kids today, this is the book I'd want in my hand luggage." - Kay Bruner, MA LCP, author, As Soon As I Fell."It's hard to imagine a more thorough - or more thoughtful - treatment of the dynamics of being a TCK." - Craig Storti, Director of Communicating Across Cultures.
