The Irish Times forum by and for Irish citizens living overseas,

Have your say: How have your children settled abroad?

Did your kids react well to the move and settle easily, or did they act out after leaving friends, family and familiarity behind? What advice would you give to other parents who are preparing to move abroad?

We have discussed the experience of emigration for students, graduates, young singles, couples and retirees so far on the blog, but this week we want to explore how children are affected by a move abroad.

If you have emigrated with your children, let us know how they are getting on. Did they react well to the move and settle easily, or did they act out after leaving friends, family and familiarity behind? How is life different for them now compared to when they lived in Ireland? What advice would you give to other parents who are preparing to move abroad?
