BUB­BLE TROU­BLE

Expat Living (Singapore) - - Letters -

It may sound silly, but I’m wor­ried about how our daugh­ter (11) and our son (8) are going to cope with our in­evitable move back home to Auck­land later this year. Since we moved to Sin­ga­pore four years ago for my hus­band’s job – I work full-time, too – they’ve had the con­stant at­ten­tion of our fan­tas­tic helper, who cooks for the fam­ily, picks up af­ter the kids and (I sus­pect) spoils them rot­ten while we’re at work. As a re­sult, they don’t do a thing for them­selves. How do I pre­pare them for the big change? I feel like we’ve been liv­ing in a bub­ble – and it’s about to burst.
