Cool! Didnโ€™t know this existed. Thanks for the invite.

12 hours ago it didn't ๐Ÿ˜‰

Thatโ€™s how parenting isโ€ฆ surprise surprise. ๐Ÿ˜‚
iqqnplda2mo
Haha ๐Ÿ™‚ Does anyone have experience with perpetually traveling with an infant (6mo, we're getting on the road again, ~4 months per city and then move on)?
tphxvrphosy2mo
Havenโ€™t done that much travel with an infant. Did about 2 months with a 9 month old, but we were mostly in one place.
gjcyyj2mo
Hi guys... Am in, Thank you!. I am actually considering combining my need for a recapitulation /breathing/ regrouping time I need and the need I perceive from my daughter to live an different type of learning experience. I equate "learning " to "becoming aware", "awareness and of course there is little of that in her current education ... I am thinking taking her around the world could help her education... I have been and will be exploring this theme in the next 2-3 months...
wmdfbdlruly2mo
rtubrqd how old is your daughter?
ycchw2mo
Hai! Been travelling for 1 and a half years now with a 3 year old child.
vrstz2mo
rosisys wish you the best! Sounds like a great idea. Happy to help answer any questions you may have.
ssgawf2mo
Thank you guys, my girl is 91/2 ... she is both excited at the idea, and ... well expressing the fear of being away from her peers... I think that needs to be addressed with staying in contact with current friends perhaps and slow traveling, staying long enough in places to make new friends?
zecfiqgpcyzrzsl2mo
cgvnopb I have a 11 y/o boy who had similar concerns before we hit the road 6 months ago. Itโ€™s been fine. Every week he does video conferences with his former friends from school back in the US and we usually hit up English schools everywhere we go to look for classes with kids learning English that he can visit (he gets to make friends and they get to practice with a native speaker). The results of that have been mixed sometimes he makes local friends and other times itโ€™s just limited to interactions in the class room, but overall it feels like itโ€™s been valuable for him.
hdvudsecakb2mo
Iโ€™m not sure about the traveling part, other than we move quite a bit compared to our peers, every couple of years. And we home school our kids (6 and 9 year old boys). We found a community school group program that we like for communities of families like ours called Classical Conversations. Itโ€™s a religious-based org, if that matters to you, but the point is that there are other communities that exist for non-traditional teaching and traveling families/kids. This group is worldwide, which is one of the reasons we chose it, so wherever we are or go there is a community of like-minded people we and our kids kind of already have an affinity to.

That all said, doing the occasional video chat, or Marco Polo, or something like that, really helps the kids keep in touch with friends and family elsewhere. They still miss them, but they acclimate too. And we found itโ€™s important for our kids to understand the friends they make are still their friends even if we we arenโ€™t near them. That part is a bit tougher. But when they find new friends quickly through our example, it does help.
wgvrtkwexvt2mo
Oh, and one of the helpful parts of this org is everyone is learning the same thing at the same time around the world. So they donโ€™t miss out when we are spending time in another country. A few things might be slightly different (methods vary) but the things they are learning are the same.
uupgpg2mo
Thank you Roger... I suppose it also depends on the childโ€™s character... So you seek English schools as a way of combining the teachings and social aspect? I was looking into online courses to keep up with the possible demandes of re-entry into the system later, but maybe this is not such a good idea?
nqvqzfwpawnwubj2mo
lihmzsg weโ€™re doing both online courses to keep up with his core school requirements and then trying to social outings (via English schools and other things) wherever we are locally. If you donโ€™t mind me asking, whatโ€™s your country of origin? Homeschooling is quite different based on that, in fact I think itโ€™s not allowed in the EU. Weโ€™re from the US where apparently itโ€™s way more lenient.
rouzmlcbvcg2mo
I think itโ€™s dependent on the country. Netherlands itโ€™s illegal at least. My wife looked it up recently.
xsuhsaqgmpr2mo
Yea, I think Germany might be another one. There are a couple for sure, but I donโ€™t think itโ€™s EU-wide.

Anyone actively travel with kids?
sfaxjlrjcrflcol1mo
My wife and I are traveling with our 11 y/o son. We do US based homeschooling (heโ€™s wrapping up the 5th grade currently) and try to get language and local history lessons in for him wherever we go. Itโ€™s been really great actually. Since we started DNing Iโ€™ve been spending probably 5x more time with him than when I was working in San Francisco with him going to normal school.
qceawhwgpwi1mo
So we have started traveling as parents with two boys (4 and 2 y/o). While there are not much urgency to learn any topic, we are constantly looking for activities to do with them both at home and outside.
guervuxamglpuxa1mo
A couple months ago we spent a month with friends in Santa Cruz de Tenerife and they had 2 children about that age. The best times were had by their kids when we went to beaches, theyโ€™d run off to build sand castles and play in the water and that was pretty much al that was needed for entertainment for the day ๐Ÿ˜„
rwxktomxypi1mo
Agree. Able to play with friends no matter local or travellers are great. However due to the virus, we tend not to interact with others much
