THE KIDS COME FIRST
Moving to a new country can be an unsettling time for children, but families thinking of moving to France can be reassured by a recent report from HSBC Bank revealing that moving abroad has a positive effect on children’s lifestyle.
Three in five expat parents surveyed said that the move had a positive impact on their children’s quality of life, while almost half of parents said that they saw an improvement in their children’s health and well-being.
The report also reveals that 48% of expat children take more than six months to feel at home in a new country. Missing friends and family, making new friends and understanding the language are expat children’s main concerns. However, it seems overcoming these hurdles is definitely worth it – almost half of all parents said the move had brought the family closer together.
