How does an exchange influences your child?

Living abroad means leaving the comfort zone, at the begging it may sound scary and exciting at the same time. The important thing is to try it because it really worth it.

It´s important to keep in mind the changes that your child will live in this incredible experience. It is true that each student will enjoy a different experience depending on the age in which they travel, their character and how independent they are. However, everyone will definitely change.

First he/she is likely to feel vulnerable and afraid, but it is completely normal, as he/she is experiencing a familiar detachment. But as time goes by, he/she will develop and grow both personally and academically.
Some changes that you will notice when he/she return are:

  1. Personality: now he/she will be more open, strong and self-confident. The exchange will help him/her to define the personality and to develop skills
  2. Influence: the level of influence will reduce, this means that it will improve the decision-making, based on the personal benefit (what suits or benefits him/her)
  3. Maturity: obviously the maturity will be evident, living away from the family, helps the person to fend for himself (to be independent). Also to appreciate the family, the house, friends and even the material (everything around him , to the minimum aspect)
  4. Self-knowledge: being “alone”, he/she will go through a stage of personal knowledge, he/she will know how to identify his/her emotions and he/she will learn to control them. In the same way he/she will know his/her limits.

The panorama will be completely open, therefore you will have a child who already has a different language, mature, sociable and with decision-making power, as well as increasing professional value and it is possible that he/she acquired skills that he/she had not acquired in his/her native country.

Due to so many changes, it is likely that there are some frictions or discussions when you are all back together under the same roof, but don´t worry, it is part of the process and you will soon overcome it.

We recommend you to read our post in which we talk about the possible situations when your child returns and how to handle them.

THE POWER OF YOUR BRAND IDENTITY

What the companies do for their employees, and for their families?

HR departments are becoming more relevant due to the big problem many companies have: the talent leak: how to retain that employee? How could a company give something to their employee that he would not get out of it?

Conscious Companies are a new paradigm, they are those companies that are responsible for improving the world around them: ecosystem, society, sustainability …

Each company is unique, although there are equal or very similar products, companies are distinguished: each has its philosophy, values, history, principles … and a logo or seal that identifies them in the broad consumer market.

To belong to a company, situates us and verifies our identity as well as giving a personal reference.

But, what does it mean to belong to the community of a company, besides being able to add it to your CV?

The seal of an entity is the guarantee of belonging, of current location, of reference to an stranger, a guarantee of your truthfulness and identity, something very important in the world of collaborative economies in which we trust so much people online .

Through Via Families we have created this system of validation of identity.

Corporations that validate the identities of people to make cultural, linguistic and sporting exchanges.

The companies manage to do much for very little, interfering positively in the mobility and international student education, thanks to its own community and seal of its brand, logo.
