    Hi, I'm Jeanette Mike's wife were hoping to be in Brisbane later on in the year all depends on the sale of our house. We've got a teenage daughter who is 16 nearly 17 who is not looking forward to the move. Is there anybody of similar age who is about to emigrate, or has already emigrated who could share their experiences. She has just finished school so anything about colleges (TAFE), about making new friends, or anything about living down under that could possibly interest a moody teenager!

    jo's son charlie is roughly the same age and he has settled in fine im sure your daughter will too!

    most moody teenagers arent happy about moving away from their friends but once she is here and hits the beach she will love it

    good luck hun

  4. Hi Jeanette,

    My step-daughter Rebecca is 16 (she has lived with us full time since the age of 5) and has just started an NVQ here in England - we have been through the I'm not coming with you routine since we discussed our plans to move to Brisbaine - The agent advised us to still include her on the application and see how things went. I just agreed with her and said that if she really didn't want to come then we would make arrangements for her to live with my parents and she could stay, anyway to cut a long story short she has now decided that she will come out with us when we go (hopefully next aug/sept) and stay for 12 months to see if she settles - if not we have agreed that she can come back.
    I know that it is hard when they say they don't want to come, but at the end of the day it is their decision and we can only try to guide them into making the best decision for them.
