Hi ,I have 3 kids at school, one young starter, one in 4th and one in 6th. we have to consider moving to a possible other county for personal reasons and i have mentioned this possible prosptect to my kids very casually and I am so afraid, based on their response now, that it will greatly affect them if we do this. They dont understand why we have to and why should they, as they are kids and we keep the real reasons from them but to take them from area they have built up friends, will we be the worst parents ever? at age 9, this is the one I consider to be most at risk. Older will be going to secondary so thats new in itself anyway. Anyone with guidance please to help me through this. thank you
