Hear the word relocation and we all are into planning the nitty gritty and details right from immigration papers, packers, work handovers, school leaving letters and doctor certificates. And in between all the busy days of planning the move and settling into a new place, it’s easy to overlook or skip the feelings of anxiety as a family.
Most of us parents went to school in a regular form of the education system with a set curriculum and pattern. But today, choosing the form of education while picking a school for our own kids, has become hard for parents as we are spoilt for choice!
Globalisation has given us many gifts and along with it a basket of basic challenges. With a lot of people working and relocating across continents, language is one area that is always under the radar of parents while raising kids. Language challenges that we dealt with as adults when we moved out of our native countries are now faced by our children at a much younger age.
We all loved birthdays as kids – I mean the entire show with buntings, balloons, cake and gifts. And how we all dreamed of parties ripped off from fairy tales or with our favorite toy characters. Well, it’s only now, as parents that many of us understand the immeasurable amount of effort that goes into planning, creating and celebrating a special day.
