They get better grades because teachers like them better (thanks to their "good" behavior.) This is true in elementary, and to some extent in MS. By HS, kids are better able to determine their fates through their academic work. [ Reply | More ]

Sit still kids are, in my experience, actually less intelligent than those who get bored too easily with the class. The teacher is always teaching to the middle. Which means that the kids who get distracted are often than way because they figured out the concept the teacher is teaching 15 minutes ago. [ Reply | More ]

Well, in years your income is $50K, it sounds like saving would extremely hard, unless you don't have house payments. One way to "force" yourself to save is to up your tax witholding--yes, yes, I know, you are giving the govt money interest-free, but it's not like anyone is earning interest anyway. Otherwise, do an automatic savings plan, and be hardasses about cutting costs. [ Reply | More ]

"I'm going to cut back 401k temporarily" Why don't you make your 401k contribution fluctuate with your HHI? The year that's 50k you put less, just to max company matching if you have that. The year that your HHI is 100k, you max it. But always put something on your 401k. [ Reply | More ]

You need to live like no one else like Dave Ramsey says. No cable, a republic cell phone, no internet at home, no eating out. Saving that much is doable, but you are going to also get side work to earn extra money. Even babysitting for 80 dollars a few weekend nights a month would make a difference. A great blog about how to live like no one else is mrmoneymoustache.com. He lives on less than 20K per year (but owns his home). [ Reply | More ]

I really don't get why Americans go from being in reckless debt to going with Dave Ramsey. From alcoholics, to AA... why not drink 1 glass of wine with dinner instead? Why such love for the extremes!? The goal is to have moderation and live a sane life without huge stressors. Saving 15%-20% per year doesn't imply not having a great internet at home! We are saving about 30% by the way, I cook fillet mignon on a a couple of times per week. Sure, I could save on that, but my kids love it. We are not into going to restaurants a whole lot, so we save on that. It's about what you enjoy the most. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] DS has 99% on G&t. Someone told me that the classes at A and N are fairly gender balanced. Seems like it can't be totally random then, right? I mean, if it was a truly random lottery you'd almost certainly get some very boy (or more likely girl) heavy classes. 7 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Interesting, we have the exact contrary - both classes have twice as many boys as girls. [ Reply | More ]

Not necessarily. More 4 yo girls than boys score that high. Random lottery results represent the pool of 99s, not the population. [ Reply | More ]

Ditto this. I don't even expect we'll get a seat, just proud of my kid for his score. But I'm curious anyway. It's not like they have a million seats to fill. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I'd like to go away with the kids in August to the beach somewhere near nyc. NJ, Conn, wherever. Looking to rent a house on vrbo or HomeAway. Any suggestions of towns you have been to where I can search? I'm not familiar with the areas at all. Thank you. 9 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I looked for 4th of July weekend. Found some good ones in East and South Hampton. Also: crowd source. Send out emails, put up a Facebook post, etc. Someone will likely know of something. Also, consider Martha's Vineyard. [ Reply | More ]

Also: The Hamptons rentals are $$, so don't put in price parameters. Just see what comes up and if it makes sense for you. [ Reply | More ]
