The boarding school experience with exposure to high-level academics, diverse cultures from all over the world and the opportunity for their individual development as a young adult make them ready for the challenges that lie ahead. But, this experience is only possible when you and your child are prepared for it

Child’s reaction towards boarding school

A children’s instinctive reaction will be negative to the proposition of going to boys residential School or Girls’ Residential School or co-ed boarding school. This is mainly because all they will see is that they are going to lose all their friends, family and to some extent some the freedom they are used to at home and that’s tough especially for a teenager to deal with. But, planning your strategy carefully, and discussing the matter rather than dictate what will happen, will quickly build consensus.

As soon as you consider of sending your child to boarding school, the preparation also begins with it. You should always include them in the decision making process from the very beginning. Listen to what they say and how they feel and take it into consideration and then make a decision for the betterment of your child’s future.

  • Begin by discussing the importance of very best education that the boarding school will provide them.
  • Discuss with them and make them understand that boarding school can offer opportunities that simply are not available at many public schools.
