Re: children recently moved to CH & mothers who need advice

Hi, I don't know if you can help me or if this is the proper place to talk about this but... let's try.

I came to CH (Zürich) in June 2011 with my 5 years old son. I am a single mother and we came to live with my mother, who's here since 2005. My son started kindergarten in July - he had around 3 weeks of "classes" - but I'm very afraid of his integration because he's kind of rebell... I try to put him in things he may enjoy, like expeditions in the forest with other children but I have the feeling that it's quite impossible to make him follow the rules... And here in CH children seem much well behavioured than in Portugal, our country.

The question is: do you know of any group of mothers who talk (in english) about their experiences and help each others just with conversation and ideas? This is quite embarasing because CH seems full of Super Mummys but, anyway, I think I need help here.

Thank you for the attention
Lol, it is certainly true that in Portugal kids are raised as little kings and queens! When we go there with our children to see my partner's family, they certainly enjoy it! And it's always quite a shock for them to go back to real life in Switzerland
