School Which Is Good for One Child May Not Be Suited to Another By BROOKE METERS CHURCH When the Thompsons decided to send their oldest daughter. Isabel, to boarding school they carefully inspected all the best boarding schools in the country before entering-her at one of them. But when they sent the second daughter, Alice, they automatically shipped her to the same school. For Isabel the choice was a success, for Alice, a failure. Very oflen the same school is nol the best for two children, even for two sisters or brothers. Some children need small groups, some large; some require strict supervision, others thrive best under less restraint; some need "finishing," others preparation. There are many variations of type, and one is quite as Ukely to find Ihese in a family as in an unrelated group. No one can judge better lhan Ihe parents what the special needs of any particular child are. Of. course the principal of the preparatory school should have some knowledge of the pupil's character and of her standing both scholastically and in the group. But she sees the child only for a limited time, and though her advice may be of help in the decision, only the mother knows her child intimately enough to make the final choice. If two children are utterly dissimilar in character and taste it is an almost certain facl lhat the school which is good for the one will not be best for the olher. The shy retiring child may need a large group where she will be forced into contact with all kinds of children, and varied situations. Or it may be wise to send her where she will find a few congenial friends and interests, and very special knowledge of her needs and attention to their ful- filment There are a hundred factors to be considered, and the wise mother will take them all under advisement for each separate child and not rest satisfied with one choice for all. who were married by the Rev.
