Modern boarding schools are relaxed and pleasant places for children to learn and develop. However, this new freedom does mean that boarders have to make more of their own decisions and puts a new burden of responsibility on their shoulders. This excellent book offers advice from a mother on how to prepare girls for their first experience of boarding school. It is ideal for parents who have decided that boarding is the best option for their girls and is a guide to preparing your daughter so that she is confident from the start and can get the most out of the opportunity she's been given. The book is based on extensive research and a sizeable archive of advice and anecdotes from a huge number of staff, girls and parents. The advice ranges from the very obvious to the rather more surprising, with anecdotes and verbatim comments from those who have been there. It will leave you and your daughter feeling better armed for what is ahead.
