Kolleen,

What does the child want more, to be at a Sudbury school or to be near his
father?

>> Hi all, Its been quite a few years since I've been on this list.
>> Five years
>> to be exact.
>> Its good to be back.
>>
>> Here's a question that I'd very much appreciate your opinions on.
>>
>> What do you consider more important?
>>
>> Sending a young child (5 years) to a Sudbury Model school or
>> living close to
>> the child's father?
>>
>> Just for some background, I moved from NYC to CA because of a job
>> offer that
>> was near a Cedarwood Sudbury School. It was my intentions to send
>> my child to
>> Sudbury Model school since I was pregnant with him and read
>> Daniel's book on
>> child-rearing.
>> His father agreed to move when the kid would be of school age.
>> Suffice it to
>> say, he changed his mind and I really was very upset about
>> sending my kid to
>> anything but a Sudbury model school.
>> So, I applied for work near a few of the schools that I at least knew ONE

>> person. I ended up getting a decent offer in Silicon Valley.
>>
>> Now here it is we're VERY far from family and I'm questioning my
judgment.
>>
>> Please share your thoughts.
>>
>> Regards,
>> Kolleen Shallcross
