Recommendations from SEND U  (SENDU is a great site by the way)

Resources for TCK Life and Education recommended by Judy Severns.

  • The best and most comprehensive link for parents is by Wycliffe. It has many current resources and there are articles and resources on education, transition, as well as one of the best guides to preparing your young people for college or university or to enter directly into the workforce. Any SEND member can register and then get into all aspects of this comprehensive site. They update it regularly too. If people want to register, they should make sure they give SEND International as their organization and/or use their SEND email address.
  • Quick, Tina L. The Global Nomad’s Guide to University Transition. Summertime Publishing, 2010. This is a book which should be read by parents and graduating high school students, and then kept in a safe place for quick reference. There are many very practical suggestions regarding the transition into university, from how to manage a credit card to how to get along with a roommate. Written by an adult TCK, and with the experience of having her own TCKS transition into university, the author has a lot of credibility. To my knowledge this is the most recent and complete book of this type. Ms. Quick is not a professing Christian, so her few pages on premarital sex do not reflect the Biblical perspective, but she is very conservative in her advice to students and gives an honest warning of the consequences of engaging in sexual relationships, outside of marriage.
  • Pollock, Dave C, and Van Reken, Ruth E. Third Culture Kids: Growing Up Among Worlds, revised edition. Boston: Nicholas Brealey, 2009. This is the primary source for understanding what it is like to be a Third Culture Kid. It is meant to be used as a reference handbook. It definitely should be on the “must read” book for all parents of Third Culture Kids. Through the work of Dave Pollock, the evangelical missionary community has led the way in understanding the beautifully complex world of third culture kids.
  • The Worlds Within: An anthology of TCK art and writing: young, global and between cultures, edited by Eva László-Herbert and Jo Parfitt. Sharon Wicker writes, “This collection of essays, drawings, poems and journal entries written by TCKs from across the globe gives an insider view of the TCK perspective. Contributors range from 6 to 27 and call a great variety of countries and places home. Well, that’s really the question, isn’t it? Where IS home? Where David Pollock & Ruth van Reken’s definitive work on TCKs fills the mind, this book fills the heart. The spectrum of issues and challenges, joys and heartaches come through the pens of those who have lived the life. Parents, teachers, member care personnel and TCKs themselves can gain helpful insights in these pages.”
  • Pascoe, Robin. Raising Global Nomads: Parenting Abroad in an On-Demand World. Vancouver: Expatriate Press, 2006. This is another book, by a secular author, who has been there and done it. She provides lots of illustrations from her personal adventures of living overseas. It is an easy read, full of helpful advice and information.
  • Brooks, David F. and Blomberg, Janet. Fitted Pieces. This is a reference book with articles related to education of missionary children. There are chapters on national schools, International school, MK school, language issues, special education needs, transitions from one school to another, and a host of other topics. Each article is written by educators who have expertise in their field. Almost any question that parents may have are probably addressed in this book. It is available on a CD, which makes it a lot more convenient for transporting overseas. It is available for a very reduced price from the SEND office or fromSHARE Education Services.
  • Bowers, ed. Raising Resilient MKS. This is a resource for all parents who are raising their children in cross cultural settings. While it is slightly dated, it still has much timeless information to encourage missionary parents. Since it is available free in an online format, it is easily accessible.
  • Dorman, Dr. Jan. Language Development for MKs A wonderful and informative article about some issues that should concern all parents of our MKS. The author, Dr. Jan Dorman, is an adult MK and also the parent of two MKS. She currently is a professor at Messiah College in Pennsylvania, and recently spoke at the 2013 Inter-mission MK Education meeting. She has also written a book called Teaching English in Missions Effectively and With Integrity.
  • Preparing to Homeschool Young Children on the Field Recommended by Judy Severn, this is an ebook (available for US$5) published by PACE (Professional Association of Cross-Cultural Consultants in Education)



TIME: Rooted To Nowhere
To Be a Third Culture Kid – from the point of view of a Foreign Service teen living abroad.
When No Place Feels Like Home by Corinna Schuler

“Third Culture Kids: ‘Hidden Immigrants’ on Campus.” Recruitment and Retention in Higher Education 19 (April 2005).

Adolescence: This article is what parents need to know about adolescence since the Bible does not mention adolescence (which was not invented yet).
Children’s Adjustment: Many times Cross Cultural Workers need to remind themselves of the special needs of their children as they make adjustments to living in a different culture. This article gives suggestions and ideas for helping understand our children’s needs.
TCK Books: This annotated bibliography evaluates a dozen or so reasonably priced books for and about children and teenagers growing up cross-culturally.


E-Books at cross cultural (GREAT Member Care Site – annotations theirs)

Understanding Adolescence (E-Book) Since the “Adolescence” article is the one opened most frequently, Ron has updated his book, Understanding Adolescence, published by Victor Books in 1987.  Written for parents of adolescents and children in their later elementary years, it is also helpful to teachers, youth workers and anyone else working with teenagers.  

Third Culture Kids and Adolescence: Cultural Creations (E-Book) Ron wrote a book for TCKs, one to accompany Understanding Adolescence (written for parents). Third Culture Kids are obviously created by living in two cultures, and the whole phenomenon of adolescence was invented by Western culture. This book examines the role of culture in creating adolescent TCKs, and includes a practical section at the end of each chapter, a section titled “What Can Adolescent TCKs Do?”

We’re Going Home: Reentry for Elementary Children
I Don’t Want to Go Home: Parent’s Guide for Reentry for Elementary Children Ron and Bonnie (an elementary teacher) wrote We’re Going Home (108 pages) for children ages 6-12 who are returning to their passport countries. Written at a third grade level, We’re Going Home includes the story of a family returning to its passport culture. Each chapter also has activities such as scrambled words, crossword puzzles, word searches, mazes, and codes. Ron also wrote I Don’t Want to Go Home (54 pages) as a companion volume for parents. Each chapter in the parent’s book has information about TCKs in the Bible, children’s TCK issues today, and suggestions to help children reenter well. Both books are included in each of the files to be downloaded below.
