    EER152: Putting Kids in Local Schools While Traveling

    04/09/2018 Duração: 26min

    For some families on the road long-term, putting kids in local schools while traveling becomes an important component of the journey. No, I'm not talking about fancy (and often expensive) international schools, although those can be a good option for some. What I'm talking about are just the regular local schools of a city or country. With local kids speaking and playing in the local language. There are a number of benefits, and it may not be as difficult to do as you think. ::: Like what you’re hearing? Then please subscribe, rate & review Epic Education Radio.

Our Family Traveler Safety Tips Child safety is always a priority for parents, and when considering travel with kids, that's one of the first things we moms and dads think about. After leaving our home in Japan in 2013, our family has lived in many countries and traveled to many places, including: Taiwan Thailand Vietnam Malaysia Indonesia Spain Mexico What have we learned about family traveler safety? A lot. Most importantly, we've learned that family travel is safe in most of the world. In fact, in some places, it can be safer to travel with kids than without! Don't fall for the media's depiction of places like Mexico and other nations in the developing world. Sure, there are unsafe places, and there are regions here and there that you should avoid. But in general, much of the world is a safe place to explore with kids.
