questionmarkSoon me and my small family will be relocating, but we’re not sure where to yet.

Should we stay on an island with much sun and no cinema or museums, or choose a cultural center full of alienation and many subways lines to choose from?

random adviceIf your kids are under eight, stay on the island. They’ll benefit from the ability to run around unfettered and unconcerned. As long as you have internet, you have access to movies and much of popular culture. Make field trips into the city on a regular basis.

Once the kids turn eight, move to the city. They’ll benefit more from the exposure to new people, cultures and ideas. Reverse directions on your field trips, heading to less populous areas so they can enjoy quiet and nature.
