Raising Children Abroad


Expat Life With Children

Everything you need to know about parenting an expat child and some of the unique situations life overseas can bring to the family.

Making Your International Move Easier for You and Your Kids.

Moving abroad with children is a challenge, but not one that should prevent you from going ahead with your new, exciting life abroad. Your children will gain a huge amount of positive life experience from living overseas in a different culture. Here is lots of information and advice to help prepare the whole family for expat life.

I’m not going to pretend that expat life with kids is an easy journey for all families. It all depends on each individual child and family circumstances, and usually doesn't depend on anything at all. Sometimes s*** does happen and I think it's important that you know expat life isn't all a bed of roses.

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.

Expat Children

On the whole, children are supremely adaptable. Of course, it’s much easier to move when your kids are very young. To be frank, it does get a bit more difficult to move countries 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.
