Whether your student is from a different country or simply a different town, culture shock affects international and domestic students alike in different ways and to various degrees. It is helpful for parents to understand and be able to recognize the symptoms and stages of culture shock. Culture shock is a normal/natural reaction to being separated from your culture, daily routines, and environments. Culture shock is simply a process of adjustment. Understanding this will help you and your student to worry less and have a more positive and hopeful mindset as they go through the steps of adjustment.
