ExpatChild is a great place to find articles, useful guides and insider hints and tips about moving overseas with kids. Text displayed in pink is a clickable link to another section.

There’s loads of information in here about all aspects of relocating abroad with your children. It all depends on what you’re looking for. To help make finding relevant articles easier for you I’ve created a quick introduction to start you off on your exploration.

Let me tell you how this site works.

All articles are filed under categories listed in the dropdown menus across the bar near the top of the page. Recently published articles are displayed on the front page and down the sidebar on the right. The main subjects are:

If you want to know more about me

About me: My name is Carole Hallett Mobbs and I’m the founder and curator of ExpatChild. Whilst I write most of the articles myself, many others posts are generously written by members of a ‘community’ who gather on Facebook and Twitter. We are expats and parents. We all love writing and helping others in their quest for a new life overseas with their children.

I do have a little corner of this site where I very occasionally publish my own personal blog posts. You can find that here: Carole’s Blog.
