Twitter update week 38: news about kids growing up globally

Sorry to have become a little slack about writing my twitter updates. I posted a comment on an interesting blog Expat with Kids. She wrote a post about third culture kids and she has several posts on this topic. She gave me a compliment for my twitter update which made me feel I must write a new update.

  1. Thanks for the list!
    This stuff can be hard to track down; it's great to have a stack of TCK reading to work through.
    And thanks for including my "change" series!

  2. Thanks Christy for your comment. It is a challenge to find all the information but I do hope that it will be helpful for whoever is interested in third culture kids (TCKs) etc.

    I like your blog and would encourage anyone to go over and read Christy her TCK story and her "tips" to help you in times of change. We need more TCKs writing and telling their story.

  3. I agree with Christy, great list to start reading weekend reading list? =)
    Thanks for the mention!
