I would recommend this to any expat parent who's nervous about not "spoiling" their loved ones to make up for living outside their "expected" environment. The section on repatriation is accurate and helpful, as I recently found out!

Thank you to the author! I had ordered two by mistake but chose to keep the extra copy as a gift to a friend. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
In the tradition of Dave Pollock and Ruth E. Van Reken, Robin Pascoe examines all the issues about family expatriation in a global and ever changing world. She studies in a systematic way the steps that expatriated families encounter, i.e. the announcement of the departure to an unknown country, the settling, the search of the school, the health abroad, the repatriation to the (unknown) home country, etc. ...
But Robin Pascoe's book is much more than a simple guide for expatriate families and their children. On the basis of her own experience (she is the spouse of a Canadian diplomat and lived in China, South Korea and Singapour) and numerous testimonials scattered with humor and perceptiveness all around her book, the author give smart and practical advice in order to be better prepared to the challenge of parenting abroad and in a context of recurring expatriation.
The positive aspect of this book is also the contributions of two expat experts. Lois J. Bushong deals with the too often taboo topic of expatriate families' mental health (depression, drug, alcohol, divorce, etc. ...). Barbara F. Shaetti writes about TCK's identity development. She gives solutions to parents in order to tackle this step with serenity.
« Raising Global Nomads » is then a comprehensive, useful, lively and exiting book. A must read without moderation!
