A few people say when I tell them DS is going to an all boys school that it will be bad for his social skills with girls????my brother, sister and I all went to same sex schools and had absolutely no problems! I think family life and social skills also help but do you or your kids have trouble mixing with the opposite sex?

My DF went to a single sex school and he doesnt have problems with females but at the time he did.
Our DS will not be attending a single sex school.

I went to an All girls school and have no issues interacting with the opposite sex

My brother and I both went to single sex schools and have had no problems. But it was a good arrangement in that our schools were across the road from each other and shared school bus services, so there was some socialisation all the way through.

I went to an all girls school. No trouble interacting with boys. I didnt have any close male friends at school but lived with 3 boys in a share house at Uni. DD is going to an all girls school, because the school I liked happened to be all girls, I didn't care either way. All single sex schools will have social functions etc with other local schools or brother/sister schools so it never seemed like a big deal to me.

I went to an all girls school (your DSs sister school if I am correctly remembering where you're sending him) and I was terrible at interacting with guys until I was at Uni, don't think it had anything to do with school and was more to do wit the fact that I generally get along better with girls than guys.

I went to an all girls high school & trust me, had no problems interacting with the opposite sex My Mum probably wishes I did though
We had a brother school in the next suburb & shared the school buses with them so that gave us all some interaction with the opposite sex too...
But I, & most of my friends, had boyfriends all through high school....
Id have no qualms sending my kids to all girl schools at all

This is just something vague from the back of my (poor) memory, but haven't studies shown that girls thrive in same sex schools & boys thrive in co-ed? In a nutshell...

I went to a same sex school and so did my brother and I don't think either of us had any issues!
I have read some studies recently that shows that boys do better in same sex classes (and some state schools have trialed boys only classes here in qld) but I will have to link later (if I can find them again).
