IT’S been an interesting year so far and one of my favourite activities has been watching the responses of parents whose kids are leaving school, or in some cases are taking on projects that signify a separation from childhood and a desire to make their own way in life.
With our son having just left home, my family is right in the fray.
One friend’s daughter signed up to become an au-pair in the USA.
Organised through Cultural Care Au Pair, she gets to live in a lovely house, study nearby, use a car, and a corporate box for the baseball.
Another friend’s daughter is off to PNG to apply her nursing skills to help village women manage childbirth and infant care
