Expat life with children

Moving abroad with children is a challenge, but not one that should prevent you from going ahead with your new, exciting life abroad.

On the whole, children are supremely adaptable. Of course, it’s much easier when the kids are very young and, to be frank, it does get a bit more difficult when they are older…

Parenting is hard work at the best of times: and when you are in a different country with a new language, a new school and added cultural differences, it can be difficult to know how to keep everyone secure and happy.

In this section you will find information about preparing your kids in advance for the move abroad and much more.

I’m not going to pretend that expat life with kids is an easy journey for some families. It all depends on each individual child and family circumstances. It mostly is OK though!

I believe you deserve the truth, and this is not a glossy ‘one size fits all’ advice site for moving abroad with kids. There are hundreds of articles here on various subjects so have a look around and make your own judgement.

Prepare your child for the move

It’s vital that you prepare your children for the relocation in plenty of time so you can answer any questions they may have. You may be surprised at what kids worry about when moving house, so be prepared for some surreal questions!
