The advantages of old fashioned paper and pen are many.

When I was in about 5th grade, I found an ad at the end of a children’s magazine to get a pen-pal from another country.

With a #2 pencil, I bubbled in my name, my interests, and the top countries I was interested in: Yugoslavia (as it was called! In a couple of weeks I was matched with “Liliana from Yugoslavia”- we ended up writing for more than 10 years before we lost touch!

Although there is some patience involved (you might wait months before getting a letter back from some remote locations), the excitement of getting a letter in the mail with their name on it is not lost in our digital age.

Despite the expense, my kids have enjoyed sending little packages and homemade cards (especially at the holidays) to family members abroad, and of course they love receiving little presents even more.

It was an incredible experience to exchange pictures (I still have her stoic 5th grade school picture), stories from our schools, postcards from our vacations, etc.

I remember the excitement of coming home from school and finding her letter on my bed: foreign stamps scattered across a colored envelope, addressed to me with her curly, distinctive handwriting.

Never post your personal information on the internet for all to see, and I would prohibit my kids from visiting chat rooms, where identities are unknown.

However, when it is a teacher, at a school, and you can see the school’s web site, it is more secure.

There are a couple of different ways to go about finding a pen-pal for your kids from another country.

Ask family, friends, and neighbors if they have a loved one abroad who would like a pen-pal.

If their writing partner uses a digital camera, it is easy to share a lot of pictures, and perhaps their pen-pal even posts to a blog where your kids can write back in the comments section.
