Maybe moving with family to Riyadh

Hi, we are considering taking up a job offer for my husband in Riyadh just wondering what it is like for families in Riyadh? We have 2 girls aged 7 and 4. We will have accomodation in a compound in the diplomatic quarter but we are unsure of which one yet. I am guessing it really depends on the compound and whether families are there. Also does everyone feel safe in Riyadh? Reading the travel warnings it sounds a bit worrying, but then there has been no terrorist activity since Protected content .

How does everyone cope with the heat? Is everyone just indoors?
