Dh and I have 3 kids between us ( 17,15,12).
We live in a small town with not much opportunity for the kids when it's time to leave school work wise. We have our parents close by but don't need them to baby sit kids as such.
We have been tossing up moving for a little while but have stayed due to eldest having Aspergers and has trouble making friend. This has come up because said eldest wants to leave school so not much holding us here except for my job ( im currently looking for a new one anyway) and dh job ( he does earn good money but not a steady income). We are thinking of moving south closer to my biological family ( more so my sister) but it's a huge move. New school, finding work, new house ( we rent now but rent is considerably cheaper where we want to go). It's only 2 hours from where we are now so seeing the parents wouldn't be a huge deal. There is so much more opportunity for the kids work wise and career wise. We wouldn't move for at least 6 months.
We are so confused stay and kids and is struggle to find employment and pay Through the nose for rent or move have a fresh start but kids have to start new schools and we new jobs but rent is cheaper.
