[ - ] S/O- Why are some people on here so against classes for infants/toddlers? My DC has been attending classes since 6 mo, and has benefited greatly from them- loves them, has fun, learns from watching other kids of the same age, ahead in all milestones. Why do some of you advocate lazy parenting ("oh just throw some toys into the crib or let them run around"). I agree free play and independent play are important, but classes are a great addition to the mix. Why are you so bitter? 3 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Depends on the situation. I loved doing lots of classes with my first born. It was a nice way to break up the day/week and was better than being home alone all the time. Now with 3 kids, there isn't as much need for classes, there is so much going on at home and with playdates. Totally different world. [ Reply | More ]

I am sorry for your loss. while I don't know what you are going through, I have always found that grief revisits me every once in a while, and each time it is a little different. I think Stephen Colbert has a good quote about grief being a place. I just googled it for you. "The interesting thing about grief, I think, is that it is its own size. It is not the size of you. It is its own size. And grief comes to you. You know what I mean? I’ve always liked that phrase “He was visited by grief,” because that’s really what it is. Grief is its own thing. It’s not like it’s in me and I’m going to deal with it. It’s a thing, and you have to be okay with its presence. If you try to ignore it, it will be like a wolf at your door/ Stephen Colbert. This has always resonated with me. You are not a freak. Take care of yourself. [ Reply | More ]

Better quality of life than most of America. Good healthcare, schools and daily conveniences. You will likely get household help, maybe driver and cook as part of relocation package. Expats I know who move there don't want to come back. they are spoiled there, like on an island vacation everyday. [ Reply | More ]
