Relocating and moving to Britain can be exciting and wonderful. It can also be daunting and confusing - like stepping into the unknown. Moving a young family or starting a family and raising children in a country not your own may be a common occurrence, but it does pose challenges in addition to the regular day to day trials and tribulations of parenting.
Bringing Up Brits shows what life is like for a non-British mother raising children in Britain today. Nearly a quarter of all births in Britain are to foreign mothers - this is a significant part of the population and an important influence in our communities.

"I just finished reading your book and I enjoyed it a lot. I definitely felt I could relate to your situation even though I don't have children yet; it is definitely on my mind a lot as I approach my thirties. I think it is good to consider these challenges before having children so it doesn't come as a total shock. I do consider the pros and cons of birth and raising children in the US vs UK." - Jessica, American expat
"I can totally relate to this book. I came over in 1984 from Hong Kong to marry my English husband. I had no family or friends and certainly felt isolated a lot of the time. This book reminds me of my early days in Britain!”
- Helen Raggett, expat mother from Hong Kong
"This book is a must read for anyone feeling isolated - living in Britain! There is support out there and the book contains great ideas for incorporating your own culture into your children's lives!" - Jennifer Trew, Canadian expat mother
"This is a great book for grandparents. It's very useful for us because our daughter is in the same situation and we can understand what life must be like for her." - Mother to a New Zealand expat parent raising two children in England.
"Despite not having kids I can relate to so much of what you say – as I moved to the UK on my own at 18. Even though it was only from Ireland – our cultures are so different. Many of your observations are just what I have felt and experienced too." - Vernice, from Ireland..... read MORE TESTIMONIALS>>
