Hi, we are moving to Belgium within the next six months for work commitment's. We want to move to the French speaking part of Belgium as we have been living in France for the last three years and the kids speak both French and English, we feel that asking them to learn Dutch would be asking too much. So we are asking for advice from ex-pats on the following, buying a house, finding a school, health care, and any problems encountered when making the move (red tape etc..) Thanks....... thanks gurtie

Hi, My son is interested in buying the new shoes that have a single small rollerblade on the soles of their feet? I was wondering how safe they are and how expensive and where to buy them. I am obviously hesitating because my son is still growing and I would rather he had normal shoes but they are the in thing for the moment and I said I would look into it. Could anyone give me some advice?

We will be travelling with a little baby on a plane and we are wondering how much milk we will be allowed to take on board. As it is impossible to find a rep to talk to I was wondering if anyone had recent experience of this?

Hi, ever since my child went back to preschool she has caught something every week and missed at least 1 day a week of school. Either coughing, cold, fever or everything else. Has anyone tried any homeopathy to keep their child from catching everything at school. I realise it is good for them becauese they are trying to build an immune system but she loves school and is missing out. I know I cannot avoid colds, flu, stomach flu etc... but just curious if anyone has tried anything yet?

Can anyone recommend their hairdresser - for me and kids? Hate hairdressers more than dentists - they never do it like I want it! Does anyone have one that cuts hair the way you ask??

I have just heard that my children's school does not have garderie during the July and August. So what do people do with their children for those two months? I am sure there is an alternative but what?
