Ek lees vanaand dié op FaceBook van iemand in Carnavon: Vra ek vroulief "Weet jy wat hier staan??" "Nee" sê sy vir my, "dis maar hoe die jongmense vandag praat jong." .... sug. Ek wil my verstout om te sê ek dink ons praat 'n suiwerder Afrikaans hier in Kanada as baie van ons landgenote terug in Suid-Afrika! Ek kom deesdae nie so baie op die forum nie, maar ek mis nogal Afrikaans hier. Ek sien daar is baie van ons lede wat Afrikaans as hul taal aangee, maar vir een of ander rede (dalk Kanadese polities-korrektheid?) praat-skryf ons nie meer so baie Afrikaans as in die forum se begindae nie. So ek wil tóg ons lede aanmoedig: as jy gemakliker voel om jou storie in Afrikaans te stel, gaan gerus voort. Die meeste van ons Engelse lede verstaan die taal, en ons het nog altyd gesê praat in die taal wat vir jou die maklikste is. So jy sal kry dat mense jou dalk in Engels gaan antwoord, en dis piekfyn so. Kom ons beoefen ons moedertaal tog 'n bietjie meer! [For the English among us, Google Translate understands Afrikaans too] 😉

Hi Everyone, I am new to the forum and have some questions concerning children. How many people went over with their children being around the age of 12 - 15 and how did their children adapt? We are Afrikaans speaking and I am concerned that it might be a difficult time to make the move since my son is 12 and daughter 8. I know there is no perfect time but i'm thinking that my son is about to go into his teenage years and that is a challenge on it's own. So I really want to know if Afrikaans children find it much harder to adjust since school will be all English and are they often pushed aside by the kids in school because they are immigrants? What are the discipline like in schools? How do they enforce discipline? Do they simply have detention for bad behaviour? Are the kids respectful of adults? A couple years back we moved to NZ and found the children almost out of control and had a total lack of respect for older people and it seemed that the Schools had no way to enforce discipline. Children had so much freedom of speech to the point where it became hard for us to raise our kids to be hard working, responsible adults with respect and good manners. Thanks for a great forum!
