I think that the worst thing for older teenagers coming over to Australia is the thought of leaving their friends behind and the fear of no longer having a social life as in the UK. Our daughter Katy age 19 at one point said she was not coming to OZ but now THANK GOD! has changed her mind. I have set up a group 'Oldies BUT Goodies' so families with older teenagers can introduce themselves and maybe from time to time get together and help their kids get into the swing of things once again. If you are worried about your teenagers getting settled then please join this group so we can all meet become friends and help each other.
