I had ALL Catholic schooling --Let her have what she wants- she will learn all she needs and maybe be ahead of public students--Please let her - there is a reason she wants out
I would listen to her, try to understand her feelings and WHY she wants to. If her reasons were valid I would consider it. If not I would try to communicate to her why that was.
Let her try it out. I know many girls who I went to school with who came from a catholic school after they finished the 8th grade, the way th catholic church works around my house is you must wait until the 18th grade to make an informed decision about whether or not you want to go to public or catholic school The ones that chose public school, they fit in great and stayed on track with their religion with help and guidance from their families. If she wants to go to public school you shouldnt stop her, forcing her to go to catholic school will not make her enjoy being there. Just remind her that her faith and religion is very important and always support her decisions.
i picked the school closest to the house........turns out it was a Catholic school...........i know my daughter.....it's hard enough for her to wake up in the am......nevermind takin 2 buses to git on time to a public school..........no i didn't let her........& she was happy there
with all respects sir i would God has others plans for her in her life not what you have in mind you have to let her fly with eagles wings
You are welcome sir all you have to do is get on your knees and pray for her humble ur self to the lord and he will do the rest you do the possible and he does the impossible
No keep her there unless she knows about (séx hand jobs etc)
No ,tell her she needs the continuum of the same school, but check the reason. is she being bullied?
When I was a kid. I had the same experience. I hated catholic school with a passion. Begged for years to transfer to public school. Well, my parents didnt let me. Landed up going to public highschool and hated it wanted to go back to catholic school was not a good transition for me. My brother was asked to leave the catholic school he went to public and excelled. Remember, dont give in to the begging. Be the Dad and lead. Consider it. Make sure she takes the highschool entrance exam for catholic highschool just in case.
Your a GOOD Dad. Exceptional!! Rare!!! You are right it is a tough year. Your post made me think of that time in my life as well. I wish my father would have listened to me. She will be fine.
I think you should let her go to public school. Public schools offer more classes and usually have much better sports teams. It will be easier for her to find the right group of friends for her and shell feel like she finally fits in somewhere. If she doesnt like it, she can always return to another private school.
My friend went to a catholic school. she was bullied and tormented because the school was so small and she wasn't in the right "group". As a result she had a horrible highschool experience. The benefits to private school is the excellent school curriculum they usually offer. On the other hand thousands of students who go to public school get into respectable colleges. Trust me if she hates life at school she will loose motivation for doing well and resent you in the end. Find out her reasoning for wanting to switch schools and keep an open mind to letting her switch.
I went to both types of schools, and the transition was difficult also but the level of eduation, skills, training and development in a private insitution far exceeds that of the public system.<br />
The only reason I would move my child (and I dont have any) is becaue of financial difficulties.
Ok, sounds like you have some thinking to do. good luck!
No. Children don't get what they repeatedly beg for. That behavior is a sign of immaturity. When they stop begging, then you can consider their requests. Until then don't even give them the illusion that you are listening to them.
Nice twist. Being a parent means you have some clue about the whole feeding thing. But when the kid will eat nothing but hot dogs and Mac-and-cheese, then that kid's parent has failed.
She's a teenager. They can go for weeks without apparently eating - or at least without eating in front of you.
Is that the natural break in which the other kids all change schools (like to middle school or junior high)? I think there's a lot to be said for a child's feelings of not wanting to "stick out". Those years can be hard enough.
I would listen to the reasons why she wants to go to public school, and share the reasons why you wish for her to remain in private school and hopefully come to an amicable conclusion that makes both of you happy... but ultimately, 7th grade is not the ideal time to let your kid start calling the shots.
one is just as bad as the other ...<br />
shes probably sick of having God rammed down her throat...
yes because she already had the experience of being in private school. She could go back to her friends
ohh ok did u decide yet?
I begged my parents to let me out in high school. They did. And I had a very difficult time integrating with the rest of the world. So in my opinion, the sooner the better.
