+1. I'm from the Boston area and now live in Manhattan. If I lived there, I'd live in the South End or in Cambridge. Back Bay and Beacon Hill would be nice but are outside my price range. The rest is either super high priced suburbs, like Weston, or provincial. And a lot of Boston is wicked provincial. [ Reply | More ]

Ironically, Cambridge beats actuallyliving in Boston because it is the distance from lower downtown to midtown and nicer. Everyone I've known who lived in Boston proper either moved out when their kids became school aged cause of the lousy school situation. We have one set of friends who reverse commute the kids to school in Cambridge every day and then drove back in for work. The DH is hesitant about moving by Cambridge is more expensive in the right neighborhoods. [ Reply | More ]

No. There is also no Boston neighborhood called lower downtown. I'm saying places in Boston are that are considered suburbs would still be in Manhattan given the short distance - ie, Boston finsncial disrance to Cambridge is like driving from downtown to midtown Manhattan (and maybe not even all the way to lower downtown, although that's what I wrote the first time) [ Reply | More ]

+1. Don't move to the actual burbs or you might as well be anywhere (whether that's westchester or Ohio). Move to Cambridge. Best of both worlds, albeit expensive. I'm suggesting an expensive place only because of the amazing job part... [ Reply | More ]

6'1" mom here: I agree with your general idea--but only to a point. Petite girls are constantly told they are "soooo cute and just itsy bitsy," and "like a ballerina/gymnast/petite princess," and a million other cutesy affirming things. When people comment about tall girls, they just say "oh, you are soooo tall....." And then just trail off. As a mom of a tall girl, you have to give archetypal examples to aspire to (model! Basketball star!) to ensure that they don't just get the "what a freak show" comments without a positive spin. [ Reply | More ]

I'm only 5'7", but have "presence/resting bitch face" along with big boobs which always made me feel like I was 3D compared to my petite friends. My mom just told me not act so tall. Not the best advice, but we're ethnic and the men are short. It really affected me -- I always felt like a freakshow, for no reason, and that I had to be extra cutesy so as not to feel like a giant. (And I'm slim, too. I wish someone had told me that I was attractive and not mis-shapen). See how it affects you -- long rant over, you have to be positive with your tall girls. [ Reply | More ]

6'1" mom: that had to be hard! Isn't it funny how different circles have such different experiences. In my group (mainly German/Scandinavian heritage kids, with lots of other groups thrown in as well), I was certainly one of the tallest girls-- but I definitely had some friends that at least came close to my height. But I totally remember trying to "feel" smaller and be extra cutesy to "mask" your height! [ Reply | More ]

My best advice is make her feel proud to be tall. Unlike weight or complexion, there is nothing anyone can do about it--except embrace it! My dad always told me there was nothing worse than seeing a tall girl hunched over and awkward. I took it to heart. Played sports and rowed crew in college, where my height was a huge asset. I really only dated guys my height or taller (probably shallow, but oh well, I think I have a truly amazing husband, so it worked out!). Asa lawyer, I feel like I have a lot of "brand recognition" in being tall--and I think I probably looked like I was competent from earlier in my career because I have physical presence. Just tell her to own it and treat the world as her catwalk. And make sure you are very proactive in finding her clothes that are long enough, so she won't feel self-conscious. We would always spend extra time looking for formal dresses and other clothes that would fit my waist/length well, instead of hitting at the ankle and coming in for the waist around my rib cage. Clothes help shape self confidence in adolescent girls, so if you can, make sure she understands how to dress her body. [ Reply | More ]

Awesome. And my mom also always told me that my "look" should not necessarily be whatever was super trendy right then (probably because back in the 90s they didn't have so many tall girl clothes options, so the trendy stuff looked obsenely short on me!) but she had me look at "Classic" Jackie Kennedy and Audrey Hepburn and other styles throughout history to show me what wore well on different body types and what held up well through time. She would buy the "cute/trendy" clothes if they were at least decent on me--but she woudl always remind me that my "real" style wasn't those belly shirts and short shorts. I resisted that message in middle/high school, but now I love having a classic style with pieces that flatter and I don't really chase the trends. I know what works--and why--because I had to at least be aware of it from an early age. [ Reply | More ]
