Third Culture Kids: The Experience of Growing Up Among Worlds (英语) 平装 – 2001年3月22日
David C. Pollock worked with TCKs and adult TCKs for more than twenty years and logged thousands of miles conducting seminars and conferences for TCKs, their parents, and sponsoring organizations.
Ruth E. Van Reken, herself an adult TCK and a parent and grandparent of TCKs, is author of one of the first books written about the TCK experience, Letters Never Sent.
The focus is on children of diplomats, missionaries, oil workers and military children, but the book has application for anyone who has spent enough time in another country to adapt some foreign ways. It isn't just children, it is the broadening experience of having your cultural identity challenged, recognizing new ways of dealing with problems, coming to the understanding that none of us has it entirely right, and that we can all learn from one another.
I have bought this book multiple times. I keep giving it away to people who love it. There is a whole world out there of young people growing up with a larger view, due to their more international upbringing. Much of their life, they feel alien. They learn different coping mechanisms - and they become very good at recognizing one another.
After reading this book, I realize there is nothing wrong with me. The first time I read this book, I laughed and cried. It brought up so many emotions within me. I finally realized I was not alone in what I was feeling. If you are a fellow TCK, or a parent of a TCK you absolutely must read this book!!!
