These questions are broad based since every child is different but the questions and answers should help to identify some key issues that expat kids and expat parents may face when living abroad. Note: Many children of expat parents are born abroad but take the country citizenship of one or both parents. Some children living abroad have parents who are of a different nationality and language, I am in this situation. These kids will hear three different languages. One language from each parent, plus the country of temporary residence native langauge. In my case, Russian and two other languages.
