There's a discussion on another messageboard and I just wanted to get the SAH/WOH perspective and the views of this board too :)

1.Do you think it is disruptive or negative to switch a child to 2 or 3 different daycares or elementary schools even if all of them are of similarly good quality?

The change in teachers from K to 1 was a harder adjustment for ds than the change in school from 1 to 2.

I'm not sure about dcs since we haven't used any, but

This is where the issue becomes one of SAH/WOH for me.

"I will be doing my best in insure minimum possible changes for A. in her school life, unless there is a compelling reason to move her, and would go so far as to say that we would avoid relocating even if there were more $$$ elsewhere etc., just to avoid frequent changes of schools."


I agree wholeheartedly.
