Global Thinkers Aren't Created In Classrooms!


Global Thinkers Aren't Created In Classrooms!
Dj Learning @  Sea World, CA Should I home-school my child? For most black families, the answer is a simple, “no!” A few years back, the Parks were one of those black families who would say, “no way” to this type of schooling. There are many reasons why black families decide not to home-school  their young scholars including, but not limited to, lack of time, lack of money, lack of patience, or just sure lack of desire to be responsible for their children's education. Most of us in the black community have the mindset of “let someone else take on the responsibility of teaching my child( ren ).” What are we really saying when we decide to allow our children to be educated by someone else? Do we care enough about our children to put in the work to raise them to be global thinkers who are afforded an education with a well-rounded curriculum that teaches them about who they are? More than likely we are saying we would rather opt for traditional schooling where someone else should

Don’t Just Be Inspired, Become The Inspiration

Don’t Just Be Inspired, Become The Inspiration When our family decided to embark upon this journey to Repatriate to Africa, we were simply looking to live life at its fullest. Looking forward to more family time, more free time, and more time to engage in enjoyable activities. However, during our research phase we constantly came across the lack of information regarding Africa, misconceptions regarding Africa, and the overall fear by our community to even consider moving/traveling to  Africa. Thus, we came to the conclusion that there was a need for access to quality information about repatriating to Africa, living in Africa, and traveling to the continent. As a result, The Repat Diaries was born! Although we've yet to begin our journey, you all have seen us preparing for the big move via our blog. Since posting our first blog back in September, we have reached so many people so quickly and a lot of you have reached right back out to us. Over the last few weeks we

Planning Process: Documentation Preparation for Your Move Abroad

The Repat Diaries  Documentation Preparation for Your Move Abroad  The act of collecting all the documents you need for an international move is not for the faint of heart. However, with the proper planning this should be an easy task to tackle. Through our own preparation for our Repatriation to Africa, we have determined that there are several items to consider in order to make your transition as smooth as possible and prepare yourself for any emergencies. The following is a list of important documents you should have squared away prior to your move. We suggest you do additional research to see if there are any specific documents needed for your country of choice. Additionally, make sure to review and update your documents every year to avoid any unnecessary problems.

Planning Process: Preparing Kids to Move Abroad

Planning Process: Preparing Kids to Move Abroad

The Repat Diaries  DJ Age 4 Preparing Your Kids to Live Abroad With all the planning that goes into moving abroad it’s easy to neglect those members of your family that don’t have a choice in the matter. Children typically find out about the big move once the decision is made, and parents seldom know how to help kids make this very important transition in their lives. The child’s age and developmental stage are big factors. Preschoolers locate “home” wherever their parents are and are thus ideal candidates for even the most extreme expat relocation.  It was very important for us to make our move before our son was at an age where it would feel like we were uprooting him. Luckily at the tender age of 4 he has yet to establish a life that would be hard for him to walk away from. Honestly, if children are prepared adequately for the move, they can quite quickly adapt to their new environment and form new social attachments. Of course, some kids will embrace the experience from

Planning Process: Build Your Village Before You Move Abroad

The Repat Diaries  Build Your Village Before You Move In order for your repatriation journey to have a high success rate, you need to have like-minded people around you to talk to and to help you. There are several ways we have attracted these types of people into our life. We are currently building a solid circle filled with people who keep us motivated and encouraged. Majority of the people in our circle are based in our country of choice and will provide us with assistance once we arrive. We did a lot of research online to look for information on moving abroad and connecting with others who have already moved abroad. Our research yielded very few results but the few we came across have been amazingly helpful. ·          Internations  - We found this website to be very helpful in connecting with others already living abroad is Internations . As the largest international community for people who live and work abroad, InterNations offers global networking opportunities , l
