Importance of the right peer group

Boarding school is an important part of yourdaughter’s life. The peopleshe meets, the bonds she cultivates and the habits she forms during these years, all act asa harbinger of things to come.Her personality is moulded in these formative yearsand the habits she imbibes, while at school, will play a major/lasting role in her life, often contributing more to her development than her family does.

Common wisdom indicates that getting connected with the correct peer group accelerates learning, helpsone find important resources, and helps imbibe the right habits in a person.

An old saying by Jim Rohn says, “You are the average of your 5 closest friends, i.e. your peer group”.
Your daughter’s peers will therefore determine, to a large extent, her nature and her choices in life. Be it the dorm room or class room, her friends will always be with her in schooland will be a pervasive aspect.For a long time to come, they will play a dominant role in the decisions she makes, the attitude she embodies/chooses and ultimately, the path she takes.At an age when she begins to share more intimate bonds with her friends, such as sharing of personal secrets and feelings, having the right peer group and peer relationships will change her life for the better. Therefore, to become a better version of herself, it is important that your daughter spends time with the right people.

A school is much more than just academics. It’s where dreams are born and crucial decisions about life are taken. There is much to learn about life, relationships and careers. Sometimes, a piece of advice from the right person is all that is needed to set foot in the right direction. Meaningful conversations and intellectual discussions have the power to stimulate the mind and act as a catalyst for change.
