school to a public school? Following is a
list of suggestions that will help move
your children move to a new public school
One of the common questions that most
parents ask me is that “should I move my
kid to a new school during his vacation so
that his/her education is not disrupted?
Well, adhering to this approach is not a
cake walk always and may turn out to be
harmful for your toddler as well. Your
child may feel strange amidst so many new
students. On the flip side, moving your
child to a new school in the mid of the
year has innumerable benefits. These

welcome your child with a warm heart.
• Kids find ample of opportunity to make
new friends when they move on to a new
However, irrespective of when you make a
move, it may affect your child emotionally.
In other words, the age of your kid plays a
major role in determining how much they are
affected by your move. Younger kids in

transiting. School going kids keep on
thinking whether they will manage to make
new friends or not or whether they will
like the environment of their new school or
not. However, teenagers are most affected
while making a move.

to stay with their friends and family
members and finish their schooling. Well,
this in fact your personal opinion and the
choice is entirely yours! However, you may
look at the suggestions included here in
order to help you decide the correct route
that you may take-
• Is there somebody reliable with whom your
teenager can stay?
• Will your child fare well in his career
if he stays at his old school?
• If you leave your teenager behind, then
will the other kids find it hard to stay

your mind to move your kid to a new school,

well as the positive aspects associated
with the move. Be sure that there is no
communication gap between you and your kid.

old friends through mail and email. With
time your kids will succeed in making good
friends and get used to this new
environment. The only thing he requires
from you is support…so give him that!
