Expat Fathers Uninvolved?

That is the question that I have tried to tackle over at Expat Child this week. Here is a snippet of that article.

“Research has been published regarding the uninvolved father. The United States Child Welfare Department has issued findings that children whose fathers were involved in their lives have higher cognitive development, feel more emotionally stable, and are less likely to get involved in drugs or violence. It also found

that boys with involved fathers had fewer school behavior problems and that girls had stronger self-esteem. .

Are the TCKs whose fathers are absent for several weeks at a time doomed?”

Interview at Expat Child

Today, I’m over at Expat Child being interviewed. If you want to find out more about me and my thoughts about living overseas, then click here.

**I’ve been moving these past few weeks, so I’ve been quiet here. I’ve had a couple of you check in on me this week. Thanks for caring enough to ask. We are all doing well, just adjusting to new apartment and new school location.  *sigh* back to unpacking and lesson plans.

If you haven’t checked out Expat Child, you should. Great resource for those who are raising kids overseas.
