Our Book-Tip

What happens to children when they are raised outside their parents' home country? In "The Third Culture Kid Experience" David Pollock and Ruth Van Reken explore systematically and compassionately the experiences of those who have become known as "third culture kids" (TCKs) -children who grow up or spend a significant part of their childhood living abroad. Rich with real-life anecdotes from TCKs, this is one of the first books to fully examine the nature of the TCK experience and its effect on maturing, developing a sense of identity, and adjusting to one's passport country upon return.

A few numbers

Did you know that 26,4% of the Frankfurt citizens (650.000) are foreigners? And that half of the 358.200 Frankfurt households are single-households? And that 322.738 people work in Frankfurt, and only 58.478 of Frankfurters work outside the City? So almost 1 million people are in the city during the day... and guess in which direction the traffic jams are? Frankfurt is employer number 1 in Germany.
