Most of us have heard the saying, “it takes a village to raise a child.” But for some of us, our village is drastically different to days of old. We’ve packed up our families and moved to distant lands in search of work, adventure, and opportunities to learn more about the wonderful people that make up our Earth.
As an international educator, my husband and I have spent the last 15 years living, learning, and working around the world. Because of this experience, we have been forced to craft a migratory village of people who have helped us raise our own two children. I’ve paid these lessons forward to help the families in my classroom on their quest to produce global citizens by sharing the advice I’ve heard.
And so this blog was born.
My musings here are not intended to be read as expert advice on how to raise perfect children. Trust me, my husband and I have had our pitfalls with our own children. Rather, this blog is an extension of my teacher-to-parent advice. This blog is a way for me to share information from world experts or other parents who have been through the same struggles we are going through or may go through in the near future.
With the daily absence of grandparents, cousins, aunts, and uncles, let this place be part of your village. Let me cull through some of the crazy out there and streamline the plethora of information in to short (and hopefully meaningful) posts for you to use or discard at will.
Whenever you need me… I’ll be here.
