My Experience

guest (21.5 months baby)
<本文发表于: 相约加拿大:枫下论坛 >
We arrived Canada on May and my son is just 17.5 months at that time. Life is really hard at the beginning. It's hard to find a day care and we moved several times. At first, we lived in a friend's home for a couple of weeks in Toronto. Then we moved to London after my husband get an offer here. We sent my baby to day care in June and I begin to seek job. But I found a suitable job in Waterloo. So we decided to move to Waterloo and I take care of my baby while my husband was still in London, we just got a car and my husband have to drive to London everyday. Even my baby got sick after we sent him to day care and transfer him to another day care, he is much better now. I know there still be many difficulties for bringing a baby with us. I also feel helpless when my baby got sick. However, we passed the most difficult period.
I also have a friends who sre studying here, she and her husband both enter a master program. For almost one year, she and her husband take care their 2 years old son in turn because they don't trust the day care. Sometimes she thought she could not finish study. Now ger son is 4 and she will continue her Ph.D. program.
From my experience, If one can find a job quickly, and the other one like to stay at home to take care the baby or can also find a job quickly, you can bring your baby. Eventhough my baby is very naughty and let me angry sometimes, but it's so sweet just to look at him. I also heard some mother said they miss their baby very much. Everything will be better if you could pass the hardest beginning. Same for the baby.

回到话题: 有一个问题真诚地请已经在Canada的朋友给个建议:我儿子现在一岁10个月,明年春我们准备去Toronto,关于孩子是否跟随我们一起去家里意见不一,老人担心孩子受苦,我们舍不得孩子。请问各位带孩子去以及留在家里的各种利弊,请告诉我您的真实体验。拜托了。
