  • What is the relationship between your daughter and your hubby? Can you move to her school district? I don't think it is good for kids to be seperated from their siblings and mom. I would ask her to try as long as your new husband loves and cherishes your kids.

  • You bring her. Its an ideal time. If she was already IN high school I would say no. But she is just going to be starting and in high school people are thrown in with new kids anyway. Take her with you.
