Over the summer we moved and my kids school district changed. My 10 year old son adapted well and is thriving. My 12 year old daughter on the other hand, gave us quite a scare as she was starting to display many depression like symptoms. We went to a counselor and she advised that making the necessary sacrafices to allow my daughter to go to the school that she would have gone to had we not moved, would be what is best. Hubby and I carpool and have made the sacrafice of leaving 15 minutes earlier each day and driving the opposite direction to drop her off at a friends house. This morning she was extra sassy and not ready to go when it was time (hubby and I cant be late to work), so we left her at home and she will be given a list of chores to complete today. The issue now is, what do we do? I dont feel like putting her in the school in our district is an option, and in order to keep her in her current school, hubby and I would have to stop carpooling and I would have to change my work schedule... When is it more than just doing what is best for her and crosses over into letting her rule the roost?? Suggestions?

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
