Hi Carole
You always raise such pertinent issues. After moving back home to Australia after 8 years in the US, both our children had significant tome in American schooling system. One graduated high school and is busy now in University, no worse off. The other had to switch mid stream from one hemisphere to another, missing a good deal of time so has been struggling to catch up. All you can do is your best, to minimise disruption ; if you even have any influence over timing of your move, which most do not. On the upside the children have a much more global worldview and are richer for it. Hopefully the catch up period will even out eventually:)

I wish I had read more of your articles before I went to the US ad you provide great perspective for newbies

    Thank you for your lovely words <3
    I wish I had read my articles before I went, too. Ah... 😀

    Yes, catch up time is more about settling down and fitting in, I think. Then the 'academics' come back. In some cases, a little too late. Hmm.
