Raising and parenting your children in a different country to the one in which you grew up can be difficult, challenging and often lonely and confusing. This book speaks to those parents and discusses issues such as cultural differences, customs and traditions, identity, British systems and language barriers. At the same time, this book offers an interesting and valuable insight into British culture from several different perspectives. This is THE book for parents from other cultures who are raising children in Britain, and in addition for family or friends who are touched by this.
