Travel Itinerary for the Week of August 20th!

On Monday we will be in Singapore, where June Yong talks about the culture of starting children’s tuition from as young as three. Does this really set up the child for future success, or is it merely fulfilling a need for status in the parents at the expense of the child?

On Tuesday, we head to Indonesia and, staying with the education theme, Lady E. discusses the fact that for many of us, the idea of routines flies out of the window during the summer holidays. She offers some very practical tips on how we can help our kids make the transition from holidays to school.

On Wednesday, we’re off to Nigeria, where Meredith talks about the culture shock she experienced when she moved there from the United States. She saw that the children were being raised in ways that she initially disapproved of, until she realized that there was a reason for most of the things she saw.

On Thursday, we will be back in the United States with Ohio mom Amy Hillis. Her youngest child has just outgrown pull-ups, and while this is a big success, it is a bittersweet moment for Amy. For the first time in many years, she doesn’t have a baby to care for. Come read as she tells us what this means for her.

Preparing for an international move can be a daunting task to say the least. Natalia is on her way to Tunis! Let’s hear how her preparations are going!

On Saturday, check out the Saturday Sidebar with Eva Fannon, where the World Moms give their thoughts on an important topic, and chime in with your answers to this week’s question!
