Well if they are pre teens or teens you can expect all sorts ofdifficulties!!! :S its not too bad but part of the process they will want to do aythng but homework and will want all the gadgets and social events.... it might mean they are adjusting soically very well so they let grades slip ;)

Well, I've gotten them some tutoring and help with their school work... I can only look forward to their teenage years... I hope it's just some normal rebelious stage and not some permanent issues from all the moving around... do you ever worry about that?

I prefer to think of the positives like all they are learning from living in other cultures and how it makes us closer as a family everytime we move and start over. Soon enough they'll be away in college!!!
