The Local has interviewed readers about the high and low points of raising a family as foreigners moving to Sweden. There’s a lot they like, which perhaps isn’t too surprising knowing that Sweden is considered one of the worlds best places raising kids.

Parental leave terms, affordable daycare and general children friendliness are among the top items.

I'm not too surprised that the family that were from New York preferred bringing up their child in Sweden compared to the Big Apple itself. It definitely doesn't seem like a place to start a family considering the pace of life there.

#1: I think so too, but one of my previous best friends did the opposite. He moved to New York and started a family there.

#2: That photo most likely was shot around the end of the 19th century. I found it in an old family album. 🙂
