[ - ] white moms on UB. if you went to a majority black, hispanic, white or asian moms site and saw as much racist ranting and raving as is the norm on UB, wouldnt you think that reflected on that race? i'm saddened and disappointed by the level of white racism and aggression I have seen on this board. 22 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] WWYD: My son is a Junior at a TT - full scholarship- we make 250K combined income and own a small coop with a $100K mortgage that we have to pay around $2000 per month and a maintenance of around the same amount . We also have two huge debt, one to our pension plan and another to a Consolidated Credit company, the addition of both biweekly payments take 85% of our income every pay check. My other two kids attend public school and we are very thrifty but have no savings, not even an emergency fund. BTW these debts are the result of medical bills and they will not get fully paid until 2020. I filled a couple of online financial questionnaires and a mock FAFSA and all of them give me a result that says that the family expected contribution is at least 80% of the tuition, the Ivies says I have to pay 45K , we can not do that we are hardly surviving with the income we have. I do not know what to say to my son, he worked so hard to be able to go to a good school....right now not knowing what to do...I entertain the idea of committing suicide so he can go to any school he gets accepted since then he will be an orphan and they may give him more money... it sounds crazy but I would do anything to help...

Are you fucking joking? He can get loans at a very low interest rate to pay for the "expected family contribution."'

PP--I am just sorry that you are so locked in this amazingly destructive thinking that you think your son cares more about money than he does about having his parents stay alive. do you really think your son is going to get the most out of his "TT" college, if he knows his mom committed murder/suicide to "make it happen"?

You are doing the best you can, which is all you can do. Take a deep breath. Make an appointment to talk to the college counselor at the TT school. Ask how accurate the FAFSA is for NYC families and what your son's options are given your financial situation. Ask about other resources. Look into student loans and state schools. Tell your son that his hard work will benefit him no matter what, even if an expensive college is out of reach right now. You will find a good solution. [ Reply | More ]

First of all, killing yourself is a terrible idea. If you do that, you will ruin your children's lives forever. It sounds like you want the best for your kids but are in a financial predicament. My parents could not help with school and I took out loans and worked. I'm still paying them off, but I have a great job and a relatively happy life. Your kids will be fine going the same route. State schools are a good option, but even if your kids choose to go to a private university, loans are FAR better than a dead mom. Of course, $4000k per month in housing costs is rather high - can you sell and rent in a different neighborhood? [ Reply | More ]

Jesus fuck - relax. You're crying because your dc might not be able to go to an Ivy? That's ridiculous.

Since it's a private school, the counselor should be able to reach out to various colleges which accept your dc and tell them about your family's financial situation. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] My mom desperately wanted to get an iced latte this morning and forced me to go out with her. I started to lose my shit in the car because I hate wearing a seat belt. After 10 minutes of crying, she finally pulled over and held me against her chest until I calmed down. By that time, I had the hiccups and longed to just rub my face against her breasts. She obliged me for a few minutes. We continued onward until she got her drink and then we returned home where she proceeded to fiddle around at her desk. This pissed me off, so I started grunting to get her attention. She asked me what was wrong and I decided to grunt at her until she gave me her undivided attention. Finally, she decided that we should cuddle on the bed together. She thought that she'd watch some Netflix while I slept, but I grunted every time she turned on the TV, so she gave up and slept with me. Good times.
