I'm looking for advice. I been overseas for over a year and my daughter turns 6 in 2 weeks. We just arrived last night.
I'm currently in Sydney with my parents. I have in addition to DD5 a DD who is 4 months old. Still have to do a training program for approximately 10 weeks (unpaid) before I can work in my field, I personally don't want to live in sydney permanently, I feel its too expensive and not the kind of environment I want to raise my kids.. I'm single. So here are my options.
1. Move out of city, do my training program there, have both kids in child care and live off centrelink till I find a job. Which will be hard really hard, financially.
2. Stay with parents for duration of training and get help from my mom with child care. I prefer this option but it leaves me with another dilemma. DD5 schooling, I don't want her to start school only for us to move 3 months down the line. So,
2a. I give up and settle in sydney so my daughter doesn't have to move schools
2b. Let my mother homeschool her for the time I'm doing training and then enrol her in school when I find a job and settle down. (I'm honestly not sure about homeschooling, don't know if I'm ok with it, just a gut feeling)
Sorry if this is incoherent but I'm really stuck.
