The experience of parents from the Global South pursuing doctoral studies in North America while raising children remains a largely unexplored topic. In this article, Viteri (Ecuador) and Lusambili (Kenya) discuss their experiences about raising children and pursuing careers in the US. Confronting the perception of children as (only) barriers to completing graduate work, they illustrate how children and parents can together simultaneously deal with the challenges a migratory experience and benefit from opportunities to learn in the field and classroom.
