Coming Home–Repatriating to Bangladesh with Children

Many people originally from Bangladesh, leave to settle abroad – sometimes merely for the foreign passport, other times with the intention of settling down only to find jobs in their field are difficult to nearly impossible to get and they are struggling working odd jobs at supermarkets just to survive. Eventually, this life becomes too stressful, and they realize that their quality of life in Bangladesh was better than the life they are living in America and return back to their native home with small children. Their first hope is to admit their child or children in the American School, but find it is full or face other difficulties in achieving that goal. So, they admit them in another international school. Now, their children have to adjust not only to a new home environment, but also cope with stark changes to the curriculum they were used to in the U.S. They have to study more and school just isn’t fun anymore. This often leads to the child becoming frustrated and obviously their grades will reflect this. As a parent your heart just breaks seeing your child suffer so much just to pass his classes when he was doing well in all his subjects in the U.S.
