I want my daughter to attend BS; however, she's lukewarm to the idea. She says that she want to go, but I know she's only parroting what I have said "4 years in one location, great education, friends you'll keep for life, consistent sports & club activities (as opposed to changing countries and not being able to do the same activity in the next country).
We live overseas and we move every few years. We have one more assignment together before the decision to board or not must be determined.
Did you tour some schools early? (Not for the interview, but merely to show the child what they look like?) Did you encourage them to read this forum? I don't want her to feel like she must go because she doesn't have to go. In my heart, I'd think she's potentially going to be losing a lot of opportunities if she doesn't take attend some BS in the States or England.
If you as the parents led the idea, how did you convince your children it was a good idea? Aside from here, are there other electronic forums for the prospective student?
