Parenting International Children
A workshop series for parents of cross-cultural children.
We teach our children water safety. We put flotation devices on them, build fences around the pool, never leave them unattended and teach them to swim.
But what about other life skills? When and where do we teach them how to build strong relationships and maintain connections? How to express emotions and process grief? How to be resilient? How do we model and create strong family bonds & identity? How do we help them know who they are and what they want when there are so many choices in the world?
Is it possible to help them transition with more ease when we move country?
Join this workshop series to become more intentional about raising your international kids and get these and other questions answered.
STOP leaving the important stuff to chance and
START being intentional about parenting your international children.
