As I sit here contemplating the move to Kuwait in May, I am so concerned about what is going on over there. Granted, I am also concerned about what is going on here in the US, but it is a known entity, one that I can predict, to a degree, the possible outcomes. I have been reading the Arab Times online. It is disconcerting the amount of corruption in the system in Kuwait. I know there is major corruption here too, but it doesn't seem to affect the entire nation's ability to move forward here. I wonder when the Kuwaiti people will demand more for themselves and from their government?
I also worry about taking my children from independent schools here and putting them into schools there. Are they going to get as good an education? I do so hope. Anyway, what they will get there is an intact family, and I know that that is the most important thing for them. For the most part, I am wondering and trying to picture what their lives will be like.
If anyone out there reads this and has ideas about growing up in Kuwait versus the US: schools, opportunites, social issues, etc. Please give me some of your opinions!!!
