High School Worries

I am sure there will be a time
when I won't worry about someone's school.

I worried for two years before Kate started middle school.
We totally panicked.

How would she do, in a great big middle school?
How would she do with peer pressure?
Would she make friends more easily than she had in
Elementary School?

I worried for Chris when he started public school in first grade.
I worry that we should have held him back a year,
even though he is doing fine.

I have worried about Trey's preschool
and then this year I worried about him starting Kindergarten.
More than anything with him, I worried about
how he would do behaviorally.

And now, because God knows I have to worry about
something and someone all the time,
I have started worrying about high school for Kate.
When I really get into a groove,
I go ahead and worry about college too.

Public or private high school?
Which is better for her?

Which can offer her more academically?
Which can offer her a wider range of extracurriculars
and things she would enjoy doing?
Where will she thrive?

Lord help me.
It is going to be a long year and a half.

Great timing for this post! I nearly had a panic attack today about kindergarten for Linus. Sad, huh?

... and when they are done with college you can worry about their jobs.. spouses.. children.. health.. retirement accounts...

Parenting - You can stop worrying when you're dead.

I remember when you asked very similar questions when she was entering primary school!
It worked out, right?
So this will work out, too!
