  • A very valuable resource for a growing group of people
    By Keith Frampton on 02 October 2016

    I have not yet finished the book myself, however my partner has and this is her review:
    "I found 'Misunderstood' really valuable and easy to read because it combines anecdotes from young people and practical support strategies based on Crossman's well-grounded research about the impact of growing up in multiple countries.
    The book is divided into sections that make it easy to dip in and read about specific situations e.g. what it's like if your family is engaged in international business or missionary or foreign service. I was especially impressed by the discussion about how and why third culture kids suppress their emotions and how to support their emotional expression and growth.
    My partner went to 6 primary schools and lived in 17 houses whilst growing up in Australia and overseas. 'Misunderstood' could have made a big difference for him and for his family. So if you are planning an international career that will entail multiple family moves I encourage you to read this book now."

  • Great Resource and Insights
    By China Mom on 28 February 2018

    My children are Third Culture Kids (TCKs) and this book provides valuable insight in understanding the challenges and joys that a child experiences while growing up outside of their "home" country. As a parent, this book helps me to identify what my child may be going through and to recognize how their feelings and experiences differ from mine as well as how to validate and respect those feelings and help them navigate transitions. I really appreciated the multiple interviews/feedback from children of different backgrounds (missionary/government/business/adoption) and the way the book is formatted to help identify the speakers point of view. I read the book on Kindle but have since gotten a hard copy as well so I can easily revisit and add my notes - it's a great resource!

  • Wise, compassionate, and useful.
    By RJones on 21 April 2018

    I read this as I am about to send my twin Third Culture Kids to university and the timing couldn't have been better. Tanya writes with wisdom and provides perspectives from a broad spectrum of TCKs. The anecdotes combined with the depth of her research was both thorough and accessible. I found so much useful information as well as encouragement and inspiration for help in raising my TCKs, especially since I am not one myself.

  • So very helpful!
    By Melinda H on 03 October 2016

    This is a very helpful book. As a family who lived overseas for 4 years, this is helpful for understanding how my kids experienced life, and how it influenced them, as opposed to how the adults have been changed. For example, my blond, blue eyed, curly haired kid tells people he is from Beijing when they ask, because he lived there for half of his first 8 years of his life. He was upset at almost 11 that he couldn't put Chinese as his nationality on a school project. This book is thoughtful and insightful.

  • Understand the breadth of experiences that shape TCKs
    By A Cross-Cultural Servant on 27 November 2018

    This book is both academic and practical. The many quotes from TCKs shows how the material in the book truly reflects what many TCKs are thinking. This is a positive book. TCKs have a unique background which lends itself to certain advantages and challenges in the transition to adult life. This book would be helpful to both TCKs and those that love them.
