<< Stable == best for children? Of course there are more variables, but
this provides more opportunities to learn, grow, relate, etc. This is
what children need. I think it will provide more stable children, not
necessarily stable living while growing up. I would even argue (in
another thread) that too many kids have lives that are too stable: they
don't venture outside their neighborhood or city or the interests of
you've misinterpreted "stability" as "stifling" somehow. "stable" doesn't
mean "homogenous" or "white bread" or whatever you're thinking. "stable"
means consistent outcomes. YOUNG kids need simple rules and boundaries to
make them feel secure.
(i think you drifted over into cultural experiences - variety is beneficial
at any age, i agree.)
