This Is Home, Surely? A Guide for Parents of Singaporean of “Third Culture Kids”
By Sharon & David Tan
“Where are you from?”
An easy question for most to answer, but a very tough one for Third Culture Kids (TCK). Children who grow up outside Singapore may not feel that they belong to Singapore, but they do not belong to the host culture either.
An increasing number of Singaporean families are living overseas for various reasons, and their children are growing up as TCKs. On returning to Singapore, they have to adjust to Singapore culture, make new friends, and continue their education in the Singapore education system.
This book provides Singaporean parents with suggestions to smooth their children's re-entry to Singapore. With experience drawn from the real-life experiences of the authors' children and others they know personally, this book will be helpful to families of TCKs through the whole process of preparing to leave Singapore, while overseas, and when they return.
To purchase print copies: Price: S$5 each (plus postage and packing if applicable).
