I don’t usually write about parenting. Mostly because I don’t have a lot to say. Everyone does it differently. There are thousands of ways to raise great kids, and proportionally very few way to truly screw them up.
I figure since madam is growing, breathing and laughing then we’re doing an ok job so far.
However. As we get closer to 5 and school, we are beginning to consider our options.
School. That’s a big question that looms on the horizon. For us as parents and for her as an individual. Do we want her to enter the system? Do we really believe in said system. Is it right for her right now? Will it mesh well with our other plans. Travelling. Exploring.
This Post sums up how we feel in a lot of ways (insert UK/NZ School system rather than American) We won’t be travelling in the same way as the family from that blog (its a great blog by the way, check it out!) at least not for a few years. But the sentiment rings true.
Our answer? We will let her choose. If she wants to follow her friends into the classroom then we will support her in that. If she doesn’t? That’s fine too. For the time being. We got this. And its still 9 months away.
