Moving to Istanbul with Your Children

Moving to Istanbul with Your Children
Within a mild climate, peaceful living and its amenities, Türkiye has started to become one of the most sought-after places in the world. Despite it is good for adults, parents are still desperate by concerning the future of their children as a matter of course. Planning everything according to our child and our world is shaping around them. So, let’s make this clear finding solution to your question marks.     

Is It Safe?
For a general perception, people may think that crime and danger are rising day by day due to the risk along the border, migration wave and being close to the middle east. Contrary to popular belief, there is a place where you are able to live in peace with your family and friends, even in Istanbul hosted 20 million people. 
According to the research of crime statics – template showing crime numbers per 100,000 people- of important cities around the world, the report shows that Bruksel at 40,1, Vienne at 4,6, New York at 3,5, Stockholm at 2,9 while Istanbul is only at 2,0 per 100,000 people.  
Also, the network of security is dynamic for the possibility of danger coming from inside and out. Let’s face it, crime never decreases zero unless we live in heaven. On the other hand, Türkiye offers you one of the most reasonable levels worldwide       
Besides, Turkish people have the features of a calm and charming characteristic. Here is one of the Mediterranean countries after all and includes rooted culture and history. Not having any ‘’Hate Crime’’ in the report indicates to local perception against racism by all means. 

What about Schools?
An advantage shows himself due to its geopolitics. The country is located at the intersection of Europe, Asia, and Arabian geography. That’s why these cultures mill together and reveal itself as a multicultural mosaic. Thus, you may find Italian, French, English and American international private schools from the West and Arabian schools –includes many different origins- from the East. One may have world standards diploma from primary school to university. These schools are the earliest educational establishments so that includes culture and tradition inside. 
On the other hand, if you want to apply your child to a public institution, you can be sure that he/she will be taught well. There is no obligation for religion class if he/she doesn’t want to attend and also choose his/her major and get educate in the frame of it, in high school.     
Will the Community Accept Us? 
Many foreigners have already been living here for years, spreading over different cities such as Istanbul, Ankara, Izmir and more. As I said at the top, Turkish people have calm and charming characters, especially from outsiders. Also the proverb ‘’One sleeping with full is not from us while its neighbor is hungry.’’ will be a great example of the question. On the other hand, Turkish people remains a commun life, there won’t take too much time to join the community. The little effort will be enough to come over the problem. 
What about Language?
Language is the most important key here. With a few language courses for you and your child and as your children also start to make some friends in their ages, you will get surprised how quickly they catch the language back of the neck. Because we all know that no matter how much grammar we study or reading tons of books, we couldn't reach the as same level as native speakers unless practicing by an oral way.
