Hey Mommies,

I need some advice...or rather reasurance!

We are moving to another town and the school don't have an opening for my daughter.
So the only option is the neigbouring town, but then she have to stay in the school hostel.
She is 12 years old and have ADD. I'm torn in two...it will be good for her being supervised with homework and get the help I can't give her...but then again...how can I just send my little girl away like that!

Are there anyone else with a 12 year old at boarding school? Do they like it?
How did you cope with letting go the first time?

Sorry for all the questions and babbling.... :blush:

Hi Yolanda,

I am so happy to hear someone feels like me :( my little one is 9yrs old. We also have considered schooling him at a boarding school, for so many reasons.
My husband says he will be ok since he boarded all his school life. I on the other hand cannot bear it, I need reassurance too.

Please Mommies who have sent your little ones

thank you

Is there any way you could maybe look into home-schooling her for a while until the school closer to where you are moving to has space for her?

I went to a boarding school in primary school. It was years ago. I know it is early and things will still change, but personally i wont take my daughter and any other kids of mine to a boarding school.

I hope everything works out for you and your daughter. Let us know what you decide.

I think the treatment was not bad. (It was in the 90's though) so that time is not like today. I think maybe today is totally different then those times.

The reason is that i want to see my kids each day. It really hurt me to see my granny only ever 2nd weekend.

Unless my kids or one of them is supposed to go out of the country for one of other reasons to school there, then i won't have a problem at all.
