BOSS TV: Episode 12 - A Chat With Maria - the Parent of BOSS Legends

Maria is the parent of two BOSS legends, Sofia and Ines who were both 10 years old when they first came to BOSS and between them, they have spent 6 summers at BOSS (should’ve been 8). Sofia has set herself the goal of becoming a BOSS member of staff when she turns 18 in 2024 and Ines is someone who you may recognise from the BOSS film and indeed the opening credits of BOSS TV when she can be seen throwing blue powder paint at the camera!

Maria has visited BOSS on at least four occasions when she has been to collect her girls so has therefore personally witnessed her daughters at BOSS, she has seen the Buckswood campus, she has experienced the atmosphere that we try to create and she has even spied on them in class!

This episode is an absolute must for parents who are thinking about sending their kids to BOSS as Maria wonderfully answers those questions that you probably have in mind including:

How did you originally find out about BOSS?

Where you worried when you first sent Sofia to BOSS?

If yes, what were you worried about?

Did you feel the same when Ines eventually came to BOSS?

Did you notice any changes in the girls after their time in BOSS?

How did you feel when your girls were at BOSS and you were in another country?

Can you please tell everyone what happened when you came to collect Sofia after her first summer in BOSS?

Some parents who have 12, 13, 14, 15 year old kids say that their kids are too young to come to BOSS. Your girls were both 10 when they came. What do you have to say to these parents?

What are your top 3 tips for parents who are thinking about sending their kids to BOSS?

Why should parents send their kids to BOSS?
