CHAPTER 3-B - FINDING THE RIGHT SCHOOL (THE BIG SCHOOL)

IN A NUTSHELL:
We have our beliefs about the best school for our children. Sometimes, the pressure on our son to study in our perceived best school gets in the way of our son's full development. To me, the best school for our son is the one that suits his personality and learning capability and style.

LET US SHARE:
I would love to hear your feedback and stories about your sons' and your experiences about choosing their schools. You may also share stories if you had to take out your son from his previous school due to a mismatch in his previous school. Share how the change has affected him. Please post your comments and stories below.

@Mar 4 2011 Guest - You're right when you said that allowing our children to go through competition and pressure provides opportunities for growth and improvement and "leaving a problem" by going to another environment might send the wrong message to our children. This is the reason why parents should really know what's going on in their children's school life. This way they can help figure our the situation - i.e. whether it's just the healthy challenges their children are facing or a real mismatch in the school's teaching and their children's learning style. Thank you for sharing.

Having our children, boys or girls, undergo competition and pressure in school, will, in the long run, show you their mettle. While it is painful to see your own child undergo hardship, view it as an opportunity for your child to learn how to face and overcome challenges - he might come out even better than his peers who are comfortable with the school's style. Parents can guide, encourage and support as the child learns how to figure out solutions to his problem. Leaving a problem by going to another environment is a message to the child to give up when things get tough - something that he will carry throughout his lifetime.

I agree with you the best school for my son is the one that suits him. I am glad I transferred him to a less competitive school. At first he was sad to leave his classmates behind but after a while he began to like his current school. He is more relaxed and happy now. So am I.
