You may have seen on todays news how out of a survey of 40 odd countries Britian has come bottom in terms of how happy our children are. This is based on education, family and relationships, poverty and liklyhood drug taking, drinking and teen pregnancies etc. Questions can be raised as to why this is, from increasing numbers of single parent families, cost of living forcing both parents to work etc. Its something that has made me think again about where Iwant my children to be raised. I have often thought that once I have completed my degree, OH and I have excellent chances of being able to emmigrate. As both of us will have degrees and experience on key industries, as well as a lot of capital etc. Plus our money would go a lot longer in other countries in terms of buying property and we could comfortably own more than one property, and this would provide us with our pension. In particular I would look at Canada or Australia. I feel that I would rather bring my kids up in a place like this, than in the UK, as I feel generally that I do not like attitudes and lifestyle in this country and feel that I could offer my children more. Would you given the choice bring your children up in the country or elsewhere?
