Raising Kids in the Foreign Service, Edited By Leah Moorefield Evans

Raising Kids in the Foreign Service, a book recently published by AAFSW, covers a wide variety of topics important to parents living abroad. Experienced expat writers share stories, experiences, and research about pregnancy, education, travel, language, unaccompanied tours, safety, maintaining mindfulness and much more. Learn about everything from homeschooling to helping struggling kids to cleaning up that clutter while living in another country. This book is perfect for families new to the Foreign Service and looking for a sense of what life is like abroad. Families currently in the thick of expat life will recognize their own situation and find ideas and information. It is also a fun look back for those who have already successfully raised their own third culture kids. Join our conversation and read our essays about navigating this challenging, exciting, and rewarding family lifestyle.
