'Involve Children In Relocation Process' Say Experts

Parents planning to relocate overseas are being asked to consider the consequences that such a move will have on their children.

Parents planning to relocate overseas are being asked to consider the consequences that such a move will have on their children. The number of people emigrating is rising expediently every year, at an average of nearly half-a million.

A leading expatriate website, Expatica, has voiced its concern that children should be properly ready for emigration:

“Preparing your kids for living abroad is an essential process if you want your expat move to be a success,” it announced.

Full familial relocation is speculatively easier when children are young, as older children and teenagers will find it harder to break ties for a new life. A  remedial theory proposed by Expatica is to involvement of children in the decision-making process – allowing them to both warm to the idea, and talk about their fears and concerns.
