Careful What You Wish For – Raising Kids In Spain

It recently hit home for me that our kids have their own lives, which we parents don’t really know much about.  Yes, we are raising kids in Spain, but does that make a difference?  Would our teens and our choices have been similar if we weren’t in Spain?  We had a list of goals when moving to Spain and one of those was to ensure the kids were able to adapt to change.  Now I’m wondering if I need the lesson on adapting to change.
