At some point in their lives, TCKs feel that they are "different" and they they dont "belong". Their difference is their strength but they seem not to see it (anymore).
A certains moments de leur vie, les TCK (enfants de la troisième culture) peuvent se sentir « différents » et « pas à leur place ». Cette difference est pourtant leur force mais il ne semble pas (plus) la voir.
"It takes a village to raise a child", we have all heard that somewhere but how to have that village when moving countries and sometimes when birthing in a country where we hardly know someone?
