FSYF invites parents of repatriating middle school students to join us for a workshop designed to help them become familiar with American middle school life and local teen social culture.  Parents will be exposed to the latest research and literature regarding reverse culture shock and have an opportunity to speak with a panel of parents and educators about re-entry issues.

Kim DeBlauw, FSO and FSYF Board Member
The goal of this program is to expose parents to the latest research and literature addressing topics related to Third Culture Kids (TCKs) and the reverse culture shock they will experience to varying degrees as they transition into middle school in the U.S..  Parents will have an opportunity to discuss strategies to support their child, network with other Foreign Service parents, and  receive advice from parents and educational professionals. Light refreshments will be served.  This program is intended only for parents whose children are enrolled in the Middle School Re-entry Program.  


Parent Panelists:
Our parent panelists are FSYF Board members whose children attended school in the DC area.
