    :jzk: in sha allah will start looking at the application process tonight.

    yes, allah will do the best for me and i always put my trust in him. I guess my chidlren are my weakness. I just wanted a better start in life for them, but only allah knows what wisdom there is behind something.

    As Salaam Ulaikum Wr Wb

    Don't be so judgmental about the outcome and remember that whatever happens Allah will do the best for you.

    Be strong and don't fail in your responsibilities.

    May Allah make it easy for you, guide you and all of us towards the right path. Ameen

    it's understandable, however, I hope you don't mind me being harsh here, but it's very irresponsible.

    it's your child's future and to give up that easily is not something you should do in any way.

    you're going to have to apply for it and give your child that chance for an education .

    it's not being a failure, but it's very unfair on your child to not give him the chance.

    I think you should put your all into this as you know it's just temporary.

    no because i work and yes, but they are fee paying schools.
    even the subsidises places require you to pay a least 50% or something like that.

    Have you thought about homeschooling your children. A family member could do it or a friend.

    Are there any islamic schools in your area.

    Now, i have to do it again and i've created a mental block.
    I haven't even looked at teh schools, their requriements, haven't even gone through the non-verbal reasoning tests with my son, haven't even started to apply nor think about what schoosl to go for.

    This time last year i had by this stage done everything and was in the process of going through the tests with my daughter.
    This year - i've just lost the will to even try :(

    i feel like i'm really failing my son.
    well, you have to motivate yourself. Get family involved. Realise that by working hard now, it will pay off in the future.

    Organise a timetable for him to study and prepare and stick to it. Like a couple of hours each day.

    Speak to other mothers on how they are going through the process. Or check online.
