It is a perfect term for children raised outside of their home country.
One child from home country + same child raised in another country = child who mixes both cultures and comes up with his own….third culture. Thus, a Third Culture Kid.
For example: I am from the West, my husband is from the South, our children were raised in a Muslim culture in Africa. That mix has produced some pretty awesome kids, but they don’t naturally fit in with a group of young people who have been raised 100% American. One is not superior or inferior…just different. That is what this blog is about.
