How many schools have you or your children been to?

For me I have been to 3 schools. St. Scholastica's(Benedictine sisters),Lourdes College(RVM sisters) and University of the Philippines,Diliman. It is my 2 children who have been to so many schools because of my husband's work. He doesnt want to leave us behind once he gets a new area assignment. My children though never had a hard time. Maybe because they started to be in that situation when they were very young,though on our recent transfer here in Davao,they had to bargain that we leave them with my in laws in Manila but as usual,my husband wont hear of it. These are their schools: MIriam College-Quezon City Ateneo de Davao University-Davao City St. Scholastica's Academy-San Fernando pampanga-Central Luzon St. Bridget School (good shephered sisters) for my daughter-Quezon City Marist School(marist Brothers)for my son-marikina City La Salle College Antipolo--for both of them Claret School-(claretian brothers)for my son now that we are in Davao City- they are now in Ateneo de Davao University and St. Paul College-Pasig=Davao Campus. I hope somebody could beat us in moving from one school to another-to lessen my guilt of uprooting the children very often...though they really dont mind at all. Enjoy life!

Well, Chingbeem I am so happy to tell that I had never been changed my school since my kinder garden to the higher secondary.My father is a government employee.He will have sudden transfers and promotions. But considering my studies in mind,he had refused to accept the promotions as well as the transfers.I am very proud of my dad. Being studied in a same school for about 16 years is a wonderful experience for me.I have some hundreds of friends and even the staffs working are my friends.Now am studying in college by staying in hostel.Hence if I come in holidays,I use to go to school and recollect my old memories back. It is a beautiful experience you know. Thanks for posting Happy myloting

I wish my husband had the option to reject transfers just like your father. It was very considerate for him to sacrifice his career for you...he must love you very much,but when my husband's case,he loves us very much too,but since we started moving a lot after getting married even without the kids yet,I guess,it became a regular thing for us-the move I mean. The office takes care of everything,even the house we moved to,so it's not really a burden. We just rent out our house when we live somewhere else. We are due to move back to Manila this end of March. New schools again. The kids cant wait for us to go home...we are going home base. For friends-imagine how many they have acquired from moving from one school to another...they can still communicate with their cellphones and laptops. For now,my son is 16 years old at third year high school. My daughter is 17,in college already,taking up pre-school ed., tnx for sharing...enjoy life

we wouldnt eat if my husband dont go...how would we live by mail?dump the $5000/ month salary,plus car/gasoline,house and all?then...what?let them both work through college by themselves?dont think so...we are giving them good education,good shelter,more than comfortable life==why do you think I can mylot a lot and have not asked payment for it?How come I dont work?How come we have our own house,cars,maids...how do you think would we be able to afford those schools I mentioned...?they charge very high tuition fees. We planned for their future...give our daughter her own pre-school,give our son his own restaurant which he could not wait to have,he has to,he is still 16. We want them to have an immobile foundation for them to raise their families. As of now, we are doing fine...their future are not at all affected. They are both happy...we travel a lot...we meet people of different cultures...beliefs,norms and practices. My children learned how to adjust to all these...speak different languages...You know,people adjust to their ecosystem...our moving a lot makes us flexible people. If one can go around so much,one will see so much. The beauty of life...each one of us has

I have been to one school throughout my life and that was Dow Hill School in Kurseong. Its a boarding school and I studied there because my father had to shift often due to his job..Sorry couldn't get rid of your guilt but I guess its absolutely fine if your children don't complain..Have a nice day!
