comment How do you respond to a toddler who endlessly says “why?”?
Many children (including my own) will start 'the why thing' before being able to formulate sentences at will.

comment How do you ensure that the Internet is a helpful learning tool, rather than a crutch?
There are many studies showing that brain wiring is changed by internet usage. One famously found that it makes you remember more often where to find info (google) and less often what info. Whether this is desirable or not, it's highly debatable.

comment How to handle homeschooling in another language?
The legal requirement is to put children in a recognized school - either local or abroad. Having them registered with a US school will let me educate them at home (no need for additional local school). Transfers and diploma equivalency are done as for any foreign pupil moving to country (some paperwork, some tests, but nothing impossible).

comment How to handle homeschooling in another language?
While not illegal, there is no legal framework to do it with the local curricula, to obtain a local diploma at the end. No way to sustain exams for homeschooled childen, no way to register your children as homeschooled. My solution may look like a legal workaround, but it is not illegal in any way.
