I think you gave me your reply to my question in the first paragraph of
your post, as I was wondering whether kids who had spent all of their
school days at a free school would find that their reasons for liking
the school were because it is so relaxing. It doesn't sound like you
would have the same reasons.

I often wonder how it impacts on the children and teenagers like you to
have new people joining the school who have spent several years in much
stricter school environments. And with parents who perhaps don't have
much of an understanding for the school's basis. The adjustment period
for those children must take some time I would imagine.
