One of the things that I have tried to teach my children is that we work hard not to get great exam results or to be top of the class but to have choices.

I want them to be able to choose how to live their lives. At the moment my son seems to think he wants to work 2-4 hours a week and own a couple of porches!!

Well Callum took me at my word and is now in the very, I was going to say lucky, but it's not luck that got him here, it was hard work and dedication. He's in the position where he has been offered a place at a Selective High School, he's been invited to interview for a scholarship at a private school and still have the option of two local high schools.

The choices that Jon and I now have to make about our son's future are pretty tough. There are pros and cons for each school.

We had a meeting with his teacher this morning that provided a little more clarity but we are still not 100%.

I'm not sure I like choices anymore.

That'd be a very hard decision Claire... I know whatever you do will be great for him and for the family :)
