Re: What do you do when your child loves her school, but you don't?

I actually think this very much depends on the kid and the age. I went to four different schools between K and second grade (a move, and then some challenges finding a good fit, and then a spot opening up in the school my parents wanted). I wasn't traumatized at all. In the city I live in, it is not at all uncommon for kids to change schools during elementary--there's lots of movement between public and private, spots open up in private schools, schools turn out not to be a good fit, etc. If a move is made with sensitivity to the child, I honestly don't think it has to be a big deal.

That said, I wouldn't necessarily move your dd. It's true that you will never be 100% satisfied, so you have to weigh the pros and cons for yourself. If there's a consistent pattern of multiple children not being fed, though, that would concern me.
