Hello, we take our kids to the International Football club in Wasseaar, but the fees are becoming very expensive and we feel that we're not getting value for money. Has anyone had any experience of joining a local Dutch football club, I know that they are really into their football but not sure how accepting of International famillies they are?

My daughter is 8 and has become friendly with a Dutch girl that lives in our street. I am really pleased about this but there are a few cultural differences I am concerned about. Firstly her parents do swear a lot in front of her (and my daiughter), they also have the radio on when the are in the car and some of the songs they have on there are full of swearing and not what I would choose for my daughter to listen to. The other thing is they want to go swimming but are quite happy for their daughter to cycle there and go to the pool on her own and think that it wouldn't be a problem for my daughter to go as well!. The girls both have their A & B diplomas. Well I'm trying to get my head sorted out and wonder if I'm the one with the problem and that I'm being a pruedish over protective mother, saying that 8 does seem a bit young to be going off alone.
