A Child's Perspective | Emilia from Honduras

Want to know what it’s like to move to a new country as a young child? Emilia was just 11 years old when her parents decided to move their family from Honduras to Canada. Host, Kate, moved from England to France when she was just 13 years old. Together, we discuss the things that our parents did to help us settle that we are now thankful for today, language barriers, the guilt of leaving loved ones behind, and more. Whether you’re a parent worrying about your own children adjusting to a move abroad or you’re just curious about seeing immigration through a child’s perspective, this episode is for you.   You don’t want to miss: Growing up in Honduras: Family, beaches, history, and chicken buses! 20 years in Canada: How Emilia’s family plans to celebrate this *huge* milestone. How to make the transition easier for your children: What our parents did back then that we really appreciate in hindsight. The generosity and kindness of Canadians: How a Canadian family took Emilia and her family in and welcomed them into their small Ontario town. Supporting our parents with language barriers: Our shared experience of being middle schoolers on the phone to banks and lawyers! The benefits of moving to a smaller town for quicker integration. PLUS, the guilt of leaving loved ones behind: A refreshing and positive spin on long-distance relationships with your family.   Links & Resources: Follow Elizabeth on Instagram: @sisulegal  Download my 50 free tips from newcomers to Canada: What they wish they knew before they moved!
