Question of the Day is where Breezy Mama‘s Go-To parenting whiz, Dr. Fran Walfish, who is an Expert in Parents Magazine’s “Ask Our Experts” column, is here to answer your daily parenting questions. Make sure to send us what’s on your mind to alex@breezymama.com and Dr. Walfish will tackle it in a future Breezy post. Now on to today’s question. . .

Is it okay to send your children to two different schools if they have different needs? I’m afraid it will ruin their relationship if they are at separate schools. . . Is this the case, or would their relationship be strengthened from being apart from one another? (They are a grade apart.)

100%,

YES! It is okay to send your children to different schools. In fact, sometimes it’s required to benefit the children’s different needs. If for example you have one child with a learning disability and another that is mainstreamed, then you’ll need two schools to go to, to best fit your children’s needs.

That said, the calm, cool, collected state of the mother is just as important. So if shuttling two kids across town to two different schools leaves her harried and frazzled, then it may be better to keep the children together.

Bottom line, the choice needs to be a family one; not only based on the needs of the child, but the whole family.
