Affiliate Participation Disclosure

Dear readers,

We work hard to provide great content on The Exchange Mom that will (we sincerely hope) make your exchange experience better -- whether you are a host family, exchange student, or a parent back home wondering how your child is doing in another country.

We use affiliate links to support our work on our blog and the resources we provide on international exchange. You might see a link to a product or ads on our pages. If you visit those affiliate sites and find something you want to purchase, we may earn a small commission at no additional cost to you. Our participation in these affiliate programs do not influence our opinions or what we promote.  We only provide links or ads to products and services that we think could be useful resources for our readers. We can only express our own opinion, and readers should verify any product claim, statistic, or other representation about a product or service with the manufacturer or service provider.

Our blog is written and edited by us: Laura Kosloff and Mark Trexler/The Exchange Mom. We do allow occasional guest blog posts, and review all submissions carefully to ensure their compatibility with our goals. Opinions expressed in a guest blog post are the opinion of the author.

Please see our Privacy Policy, Terms and Conditions, and Disclaimer for more information.
