in your opinion which school is more important?
what i am trying to do here is figure out where to put my money.
should i spend the mucho bucks at elem or at high school.
and i thought i'd ask you moms of teenagers here.
dd is in an elementary school which she is not too fond of. i have already changed schools once and i have learnt to accept that for dd right now school is just tolerable.
i am saving my energy and money on a good high school.
looking back i find i put in a lot of time and effort in trying to find a good elem program for dd.
and i look back and see she is doing ok - not excited. she is willing to tolerate it.
all of you mamas who already have a child in high school or graduated from high school, is the amount of energy i spent in trying to find a 'good' elementary school all that important? i mean yeah if your child is miserable, its a whole different story. what if your child is ok with it?
dd is almost 9. i look back and find omg i have spent sooo much wasted time (at least i call it wasted) on worrying about little things, that now in retrospect i find is not that big a deal at all.
i cant do both. if i have to move dd to her kind of school, it will mean a huge issue with ex. that's the reason why i have saved that for middle perhaps but definitely high school. school will be an hour away.
what do you think?
