life in Norway with kids

Hi everyone!

My husband got a job offer in Oslo, we've got a 2 year old daughter  and  would like to know hows life in Norway with kids?
I've read and heard some pretty horrible  stuff about Norwegian Child welfare , they are even being investigated by the European Human rights due to so many protests around the world.

Has anyone here  had an encounter with Barnevernet? 
Do you know someone who has had?

Even if you never had any problems with them I still would like to know if you're enjoying life there with you kids.

many thanks

hmm so I guess there's not many parentes in this group then ...

I have a daughter in Norway.  She is 2 years old now.  She is borned in Norway.

I have no experience with Barnevernet.  As long as you do not practise physical disciplinery on your child , you have nothing to worry.  we do not believe in physical punishment in our family.

My colleague had experience with Barnevernet when their daughter (4yrs old) lied to the barnehagen people that her daddy will hit her.  They had to go through 3 months of meetings with the police to prove that her daughter was lying.

Thanks for the response!  :top:

Thank you for your understanding.
