Abstract and Keywords

Global migration is transforming the shape of families as hundreds of millions of children are growing up in transnational families the world over. In this chapter, the implications of transnational familyhood for parenting and the development of children is considered including the normative family separations that accompany the process of migration, complicated family reunifications, and the ways in which normative parenting is disrupted by migration. Growing up in transcultural spaces can complicate enculturation and acculturative tasks for children, adolescents, and emerging adults. The ways in which developmental scientists theoretically and paradigmatically examine the culture(s) of children and youth developing in transnational spaces are problematized and recommendations for future research are then made.

Keywords: immigration, transnationalism, parenting, family separations, acculturation, family relations, culture
