At what age, if ever, is a boarding school good for children?


Answer by  Cara (72)

Boarding schools have the maximum benefit for children between ages 10 and 18. After age 10, children have a sense of independence and will continue to develop their individuality.

I am old-fashioned and do not consider boarding school a good idea for a child. When I gave birth to my children it was very important to impart my moral, religious, etc. standards to their generation. Too many people take the easy way out and send their child away or kept in the care of others for long periods.

I believe middleschool age is a good time to begin boarding school. With the changes happening during that period, it is a good time to become self reliant.

What is the reason for considering it? What do you expect to gain? Often, parents with unruly kids (i. e. , kids in constant trouble) send them off to boarding school. If your kid was good when s/he left, they may be quite different when they return.

A child age must be atleast four years is the best for them to enter into the boardingschool. Because at this age only they can analyse the goodthing and badthing.
