I need some advice pertaining to my 12 yo son. We are planning on moving soon, we are buying a manufactured house and have to find some land. We've been on a long road the past few years, moving out of state for better jobs, leaving family and friends, declaring bankruptcy to get away from a house that would never sell. The move has been good for the kids, better schools and environment, etc., they're doing great. Now here's the problem, to stay in the school district so he can keep his friends (which I like, good group of boys) will be very hard. The land isn't what we want and it costs more for less. Now, the next town over (half hour away) there is more beautiful property at a much lower price. I don't want my son to lose his friends (again). He's a good kid, but moody, quiet, and reserved as of late. I'm so afraid that if we move him away from his friends and put him in another school that he'll either become a moody loner OR make the wrong type of friends. I plan on this move being the last one we ever make (hopefully) and putting down roots and growing old there. So the location IS very important. I just don't know how it'll affect my son, any advice?
