|When Your Family Moves: School Daze
"When we moved I was totally freaked about starting in a new school."
"The hardest part was making new friends and finding classes!!!!"
"I have moved, but I've always stayed in the same school district. I've never had to deal with leaving my friends, and if I did, I don't know how I'd manage!"
What's scarier than having to start over in a new school? Not much. It's hard enough to be dealing with new teachers and classmates, but you might also have to adjust to new ways of grading, unfamiliar rules and guidelines, and a style of teaching that's slightly different than you're used to.
So what's the best tool to help you deal? Information. The more you know about what's in store, the easier and less frightening it will be.
