don’t get me wrong, I know that it is hard to move every three or four years and start all over again. Finding new friends, starting at a new school, maybe even in a new school system and having stressed out parents who want you children to be happy about all that.

BUT let’s not forget what you get in exchange of living in a foreign country. You guys learn about different cultures, you are aware of differences in humans and have no problem to interact with people from all over the world. You even might know how to communicate in different languages. AND let’s not forget about all the privileges you have. You can go on holiday for maybe two, three or even four times a year. You see places which I as a child didn’t even know exist. You stay and eat in four or five star restaurants. Most of my friends children don’t even know what these words mean.

I think this is a very good trade for all the frustration, unhappy and new situations you have once in a while. And you can be assured that you will grow up to a flexible, resilient and strong character who will find it easy to settle into new environments and situation. So please enjoy your time it will end sooner that you think…..
