Before we left for a six-month sabbatical in Buenos Aires, everyone agreed on one thing.
“Kids are resilient,” everyone said. “Throw them with Argentine kids for five minutes and they’ll playing together. Your kids will be fine.”
And my kids were fine, and they are resilient. But did my kids dive into a new culture without any hesitation, just because they are kids?
Um, not so much.
I’m over at Rachel Pieh Jones’ site, Djibouti Jones today, talking about raising Third-Culture Kids–or not. Won’t you join me there?
