Re: Basically it's Monday
It's hard because I have a Real (the UK version) school qualification and Heiner has Haupt school qualification.
I can see his point in that he wants the best for her but is it the best? I mean, ok...she's clever but it's not enough to be clever. You have to want to do the work. You have to push yourself through school and want to do the best work you can...and that's not Shannon.
I have a super work ethic. Heiner doesn't...Shannon doesn't either. We have had to push her all the way though primary school and often it's been a battle. It's really not been easy. I just cant imagine how had it'd be to push her though this too.
But Heiner thinks it's different in the Real school. He thinks it's more hands-on and doing more stuff yourself so he thinks that will motivate her. In the Haup school the kids never got to do any science experiments or build things. I did in my school.
I just dont know...This is one of the biggest decisions we're going to make for her because it really will have an influence on the rest of her life and I really dont want to choose.
I am Janine; mum to Shannon (10), Derry (8), Cameron (7), & Fynn (4)
