I suppose we were quite lucky really as my mum and dad were all for us coming. Nicks mum soon came around to the idea. We have 7 siblings between us and we never saw much of each other when in the uk, mainly chats on the phone.
My mum and dad have visited 3 times and nicks mum is coming for the 2nd time in April. we have also entertained several of our friends since we have been here.
The web cam is great and we get to see each other.
Get a phone card its cheap about $2 an hour to ring UK.
At the end of the day its yours and your childrens future that matters.
i agree with Tyke emotional blackmail is terrible, you are under enough stress making the move without have all that family stuff rammed down your throat.
Be Strong and Positive and maybe when they visit they will see why you moved
all the best
