the life in the boarding school is very different.there every child have to follow all the rules of the school.in boarding schools the children life is very disciplined and planned.i am in favour of the boarding life.but the main problem in our country is that these boarding schools are very expensive and everybody could not afford the expenses of that schools.

The age of childhood is from 4 to 14. During this period one should have privilege to watch grow, each day with learning, laughing, enjoying, falling, getting up, hugging you, at times anger, playing, climbing the trees, hide and seek. All these are god gifted happiness for parents. In the name of the discipline if you want to put them to boarding school, you are virutually depriving them of loving and caring and you will be deprived for life, the attachment with the child. Psychologically it is undesirable and unsocial. If a child is orphan,I can understand you can put him in boarding school.

Children are God's gifts, a heritage and a reward, and are to be accounted blessings, and not burden. Parents shrug off their responsibilities by sending their children to boarding schools. It is parents responsibility to discipline and raise their own children.If God gave millions of dollars, would you part with it and give the whole lot to someone else to manage and keep? You would not do that - your children are more precious than your money and gold - please don't give your blessings to someone else to raise. God will hold you accountable for it.

I do feel that they would be getting a top nothch education but it would not be good for them to be away from their families for so long. I went to a private school when I growing up and send my boys too. They still get a good education but I get to see them everyday where if I sent them away for school I would hardly ever get to see them.

I wouldn't agree with what was said that boarding school is best for disciplining the child. Discipline can start at home, although school has also an influence but I think discipline greatly starts from the parents. I think I will not bring my children, especially when they are still young to boarding school because I want to see them closely as they grow.
