Relocated, Now Kids are Struggling in School
Hi, moms! I just joined Cafe Mom's today and this is my very first post. I've been a SAHM only since November 2012, when I left the crazy busy corporate world to relocate to a very rural area for my husband's job. Other than missing their friends and former school, my 7 and 9 yo seemed to handle the move very well. Suddenly my 9 yo's grades have all dropped (some from As to Cs, just in the 4 months we've been here). I'm scheduling meetings with the teachers to get the full picture as to what's going on (not getting my from my son), but I'm also beating myself up because now that we have more time together, they are supposed to flourish, right?? And moving from our high ranked school in a metropolitan area to such a rural area, they are supposed to be ahead of their peers (only in my mind - trust me, I'm already over this idea as their new school is fantastic). This is more unloading than an actual question, but I would like to know if any of you have experienced anything similar and how you managed. To the Parenthood viewers, I really sympathized with Julia when she struggled after quitting her job, minus the great house and perfect skin.
