Raising Kids In Africa

Tuesday, May 5, 2015

My big worry relocating to Africa was the kids.

Living in a developing nation was an incredible experience for us as a family however creating a family life without all the things I take for granted in the US was a nightmare.

This book is an outstanding resource.

It was written by 2 mothers who lived abroad and candidly lay out the good, the bad and the ugly.

I laughed and cried when I read it.

I really valued the fact that they addressed some delicate issues head on.

I have actually recommended this book to all newcomers to Africa as it actually is a huge help.

Check it out for yourself and please do let me know what you think.

Best of luck with the move.

Living in a developing nation is an incredible life-altering experience. However it takes on an entire brand-new meaning and level of complexity as soon as somebody becomes a parent.

The book offers really useful advice on the key considerations when moving overseas to a developing country with kids in tow.

The book tackles the truly difficult problems such as hiring and training a local nanny, finding a good school, checking out health care, safety and security.

The authors share their experiences in attempting to balance exposing kids to local culture and balancing this against protecting them from the harsh facts of poverty.

This book is a fantastic asset to moms and dads thinking about relocating to a developing country.
