[ - ] I see a lot of posts about kids having to change schools, i.e. they were miserable etc. What do you think of a situation where a kid grows up from Kindergarten in the same peer group in a burb such as Scarsdale , Westport etc. i.e.: knowing the same kids throughout, but having enough variety to not be bored. Do you think kids like this also get miserable ? in other words, what reasons does a kid want to leave a school. Obviously bullying would be a big one, but what else ? 6 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I think teens can be miserable in any environment. Maybe they dont feel like they fit in. Maybe they were a little too "fast" at some point and developed a reputation. Maybe the school is a pressure cooker [ Reply | More ]

Something which can't be fixed because it is part of the culture of the school. Just like joining a company. Company X can make something in a supportive, collegial environment. Company Y can make the same things but through constant politics and backbiting. Political types will do great in Company Y, apolitical types should be in Company X. [ Reply | More ]

I know a few kids who were counseled out of Brearley and Trinity and are now miserable, in spite of doing better academically at other schools. They feel like they were too dumb for the difficult school, and no amount of success in their new school can get that out of their minds. It's sad. [ Reply | More ]

My girls are not the "seen but not heard" types but they're not running around throwing things either or having tantrums. They're just somewhat loud and like to be silly.

I tell my kids to be quiet usually in public places, and sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. The key is not stressing out that you must please everyone around you every minute of your outing in public. Expecting friendly faces all around you is putting too much pressure on your well being. Oftentimes it doesn't matter how well behaved the kids are, sometimes people are annoyed just for no reason at all, kids or no kids and will appear mean-spirited because they are having a bad day, has nothing to do with you.
