Abstract


Topic of emigration from Lithuania became an important issue both in scientific dialogue and political arena. Huge migration waves bring nothing but social, economic, education and other problems for the country of origin and also for the decision making migrants. And the influence of migration touched already the most vulnerable part of the population – children. If they are left alone in Lithuania they suffer from separation with their parents, but if they migrate together they suffer as well, facing other issues, such as: foreign language, country, culture and different educational systems, if they have to transfer the school. School transition, adaptation in the new environment, new country by itself is already a very complicating and challenging process for the children’s development. Moreover, during such transition problems become even more complex and this time parental involvement plays an essential role. This research is based on the children perspective, how they see parental involvement in children adaptation process both in the new country and new school abroad. The aim of the study is to identify parental involvement in children adaptation process due to migration.
