India Hicks (host of last season's Top Design) has many titles, but none is more important than mother. In the latest issue of Cookie magazine, the model/designer mum to four who lives with two of her children and her partner in the Bahamas, talked about making the difficult decision to send her older boys, Felix, 11, and Amory, 9, to boarding school in England. She said:
"There's a point where you outgrow an island education," she explains. "Especially boys, who need to be socialized and have laboratories, art departments, and playing fields." That said, she adds, "I miss them unbearably. It's a physical pain. I hop on and off that plane to London like it's a bus."
Would you be able to bear this kind of separation if it meant a better education for your kids?
