    IS YOUR CHILD EXPERIENCING CULTURE SHOCK?

    Sometimes ESL students and/or their family members go through a cultural transition period called "culture shock".  This is an emotional transition from one culture to another that affects mood, behavior, sleep patterns, and relationships.  It often appears in stages; please see the the details in the link above.
