I've been homeschooling my daughter for 3 years now. Next year I'm planning to send her to the high school. I am looking for private schools as she doesn't really like being around a lot of people. I found this private school called Cestar high school in Toronto and I think its best suited for her. But the problem is, she still thinks she is not ready to go a school.
Could you please tell me how I can help her mentally prepare to go to school?

Hi there, great question! It's one I've had to face personally when preparing my then 10th grader to enter public school setting as a dual enrolled student at a very small local college to complete her last 2 years of homeschool high school. She struggled with anxiety and meeting new people was a daunting task. Have you considered working with the school counselor to set up a "day in the life" type situation with your daughter and a real classroom setting? Many schools are very willing to do this and it could be a ton of fun for her to experience first hand what it could be like without actually taking the plunge to for real be in that setting.

It's really key to listen to her concerns, prompt her that change is a part of life, but that you are always there for her every step of the way. My daughter found that once she stepped out and enrolled in this new setting, that she really thrived and enjoyed making new friends as well as having another teacher besides mom giving her feedback on her work. It really matured my daughter, as well as, gave her a newfound confidence that could only be realized by taking that scary step of trying something new. Whatever you all decide, it will be fantastic! Life is about change and growth and it sounds like you're being a great mom coming alongside your daughter already, I'm sure she appreciates it. She will do great!
