As a parent, you are the most important person to help your children succeed in the United States. However, raising children in the United States can be very different than raising children in your home country. Some things may be easier than they were before and some things may be harder. Many refugee parents say that they felt like their children adjust to life in the United States quicker than they do. This can sometimes make parents and children feel disconnected from one another.
We recommend talking to other refugee families about their experiences raising children in the US using our online forums.
