Popular Expat Parenting Topics:
Raising Bilingual Children
Our expert Linguist offers a comprehensive and practical lecture on how to raise bilingual children, a “must” in the Netherlands. This talk will answer many worrisome language questions for multi-cultural parents considering child care and education for their international children.
Death and Family Testaments in NL
Every expat parent should have a Dutch will to avoid legal or tax-related problems, should the unthinkable happen. If you die while resident in the Netherlands, your entire estate will be subject to Dutch inheritance tax, no matter where your assets are. The courts will take custody of your children. Our international family law specialist will give parents need-to-know information to get it done quickly and painlessly.
Expat Kids & Global Nomad Families
A lecture touching on issues such as the “trauma” of leaving a country, cross-cultural childhoods, the grieving process, issues of self-esteem and identity. Our Psychologist will talk parents through the transition process and advise them on how to help their “third culture kids” adjust.
The Dutch Health Care system
The conservative and non-interventionalist approach of the Dutch medical and maternity care has been a great source of concern to many expats. A comprehensive talk by our qualified localised expat will elude to “expat privileges” and new support systems to reassure parents with “inside” information.
