Kate Berger holds a BA in Psychology from the George Washington University (Washington, D.C.), and an MSc in Child and Adolescent Psychology from the University of Leiden. She  currently works as an expat kid cultural consultant, providing expat children with a safe haven to express their frustrations, and coping strategies to help overcome the difficulties associated with being a foreigner in the Netherlands.

In a webinar in September of 2011 she interviewed Norman Viss and Carol Van Dyken, longtime parents of TCKs, about how they have experienced and dealt with guilt issues in raising a total of seven children in an expatriate environment. Norman and Carol are the two coaches at Expat everyday Support Center. So you will get an insight into how your coaches did things. How cool is that!

We had an open and frank discussion about how we as parents look back on our lives as TCK parents (which still continues to this day, actually!)
We reflected on questions such as:

  • How have you, as parents, dealt emotionally with your lifestyle, also in relation to your children?
  • How difficult has it been to raise children in the expat life?
  • How have your children adjusted, and how do they look back on the choices you made?
  • What kinds of differences are there between moving to another country and moving back to the ‘home’ country?

And the million dollar question: How do you deal with your own feelings of guilt as a parent, when your child has a problem/difficulty that is a direct result of being a TCK?
