Why? Is Scandinavia really the Shangri-La for Moms?
Stay at least a year, so the kids get an entire year at school + summer in Finland 🇫🇮
Finland is all about seasons, so stay one year in total to experience all the seasons.
First, thank you for your Substack. I am desperate for more to read on the way to bring up children practiced in other European countries. I've travelled a lot around Europe as an adult, and looked on hungrily at the way kids were parented, particularly in Denmark where I spent a lot of time. I trained around Norway with my Dad, and always felt sad that I had no ties to the country to bring me there more. It just seems like they totally understand kids and parenting a lot more. So thank you for sharing the nuts and bolts (I'm still looking for the Japanese version of this!).
To answer your question, stay as a long as you can. It will be such a huge part of their life and upbringing, if you feel your own wellbeing is better there, along with there's, what's the draw to go back at all?
Ihanaa, että päätitte jäädä ja ihanaa, että olette nauttineet!
Samaa mieltä kuin moni täällä. Olkaa vuosi, ikään kuin ”vaihto-oppilaana” koko perhe. Näette koko vuoden vuodenajat ja lapsesi saavat todistuksen suomalaisesta koulusta. Kaikkea parasta teille❤️!
Koko vuosi! Kaikki vuoden ajat!
