Helping TCKs Build Healthy Relationships with Their Passport Countries

Living abroad can create challenges when it comes to helping children know and love their passport countries. Traveling ‘home’ for vacation or an extended stay may be met with resistance. Even those who love their passport country may be dismayed by a lack of knowledge or a struggle to fit in.

Gain insights into the complexities of TCK connection to place, and learn practical strategies for nurturing positive relationships with countries - especially the one/s you hold citizenship in, but don’t live in, or didn’t grow up in.

Parents, caregivers, and Adult TCKs themselves will be equipped to understand and empower TCKs on the journey of cultural belonging and identity.
