Guest Rachel Posted March 26, 2003 Report Share Posted March 26, 2003 Please feel free to delete this post, because I know that I'm technically not supposed to post here. However, I need some advice from parents who most likely feel the same way as mine do. I'm going to the Royal Winnipeg Ballet's Summer Program this summer, which serves as an audition for their year round program. If I were accepted and went, I would be a 15 year old living a long way away from my parents in California. My mother and I were discussing boarding last night. Her view was that without the support network of a family, I might run into emotional problems. She thinks that the isolation of such a ballet-focused atmosphere would result in me missing out on certain parts of growing up. How would you feel if your son or daughter wanted to move away to pursue their ballet training? Doesn't life force a kid to grow up, no matter what the circumstances? Would it be more difficult to live without my family than I realize? Rachel Quote Link to comment
