FIS ES and PS New Parent Transition Meeting (Virtual)
New parents to the Oberursel Campus ES and PS are invited to a virtual meeting that will focus on the social and emotional challenges (for both children and adults) often associated with a move to a new country and/or school setting. FIS counselors will discuss stages of culture shock, common reactions specific to children's different developmental stages, and strategies to support both you and your children at this exciting yet challenging time. The session will refer to the leading research on global families by David Pollock and his book Third Culture Kids. Counselors will also discuss the additional stress of moving and settling in during the restrictions of the world-wide pandemic. Registration information will be shared via Calendar Highlights.
