I grew up in the suburbs of a major metropolitan city in Canada. I know live in a very urban area, and love the conveinence of shops at my door, public transit, museums, and generally the hustle and bustle of city living. Sometimes I wonder though, what life in a rural or country setting would be like.

I was born in Cuba, Alabama - but not raised there. When I was 2 1/2 my parents moved to Michigan. I have lived in Montgomery, Quincy and now Coldwater/Kinderhook Michigan. I would say I was actually raised in Quincy though. I mostly grew up there. From 1st grade til 9th. Right now I live in the middle of nowhere. It's great because it's a lot of woods. It is also very boring and their are not many near by job opportunities either. It's good for those that like peace and some quiet (when it's not hunting season).

That is quite the distance away. Did you have a hard time adjusting to Michigan's weather?

That actually sounds really lovely Rainbow. I love England, your small towns and villages are gorgeous and so rich in history.

I grew up in west London, having been born just down the road in an inner London borough. When I was about 15, the family moved further outwards into the outer suburbs. Right now, I'm resident in outer suburbia, but it's still pretty populous, as London's urban sprawl is now vast.

i grew up in lumban, laguna, philippines. my father took care of me because my mother has to work in the office. usually he leaves me with my grandparents so that i can play with my cousins. our place there is very nice because it is far from the noise of the city but its developed enoughto enjoy things

I agree that raising children in a safe place is very important. It can be stressful to be a parent in an urban setting. Thank you!
