Book For Expatkids
WHEN ABROAD DO AS THE LOCAL CHILDREN DO - ORI'S GUIDE FOR YOUNG EXPATS
By Hilly van Swol-Ulbrich and Bettina Kaltenhäuser
ISBN 90 5594 262 6
Available from www.bergli.ch
Most expatriate parents don’t want to think too much about the impact their nomadic lifestyle is having on their children. Because most children quickly learn new languages, make new friends and seem to embrace their new surroundings far faster than their parents, it is easy to assume they are spared the adult distress of culture shock and the long, slow acculturation process.
This delightful, practical, entertaining and reasuring book is written by long term expatriates and intercultural experts. Loaded with suggestions and fun activities, links and emails, the book and it's complementary website www.ori-and-ricki.net puts the young expat in the centre of the moving process. A german edition is available as well.
