Helping children adjust to a new home abroad
If you are moving abroad with your family, it’s natural to have worries about the effects the upheaval might have on your children’s wellbeing. On the one hand, this is an amazing opportunity to see the world and experience new adventures. On the other hand, having to find your feet in an unfamiliar place can be unsettling – at any age.
The good news is that children often adapt far better than their parents. They make friends easier, pick up new languages quicker and generally throw themselves into the experience with all the energy and enthusiasm of youth. There will inevitably be difficulties though, so prepare yourself for some ups and downs.
