I guess it is more the concept of work, make money, save vs earn money to spend on life experiences and creating loving family memories. I was raised with the family memory philosophy and find from UB ( and some people irl) that my family was irresponsible, parents didn't save enough money, why were you traveling, yachting, etc if you didn't' have x $$ saved. My parents passed away in my early 20's and I cherish all the wonderful times we spent together. [ Reply | More ]

here's the thing, few people plan to leave kids a huge estate - but if you are conservative in making sure you save substantially so that you can live a long life wo being a financial burden to them, you may end up leaving them a big estate. i would never want to "plan" to only need money until 80 and outlive that, or to assume i won't need care when i'm older and then run out and need to be on medicaid.

Honestly, given the state of the world (esp. the environment), I feel like those who have more will be better off.

I think your first responsibility is to save appropriately for your own retirement so you don't dump your poor old ass on your kids and can afford to hire some help. When that savings is reasonable than have fun. You should have life insurance so if you die when they are young they are ok and relative does not have the financial burden. [ Reply | More ]

Criminal filings against Dickerson stretch over a decade and include burglary, firearms offences, drug trafficking, criminal trespass, disorderly conduct and kidnap. In 2006 he was sentenced to one year behind bars for a drug trafficking conviction. But in numerous pictures posted on Dickerson's Facebook site in recent years he appears to have turned his life around to become the proud father of four. 26 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I would choose it because I believe academic foundation is very important. I am very impressed with how well my dc is taught fundamentals which was not at all the case for my older kids. I also like immediate feedback kids get (grades, corrections etc) I like weekly progress reports that I get vs report card 3x a year which is based on nothing but subjective opinion of a teacher, I like that kids are graded and have tests (I know most UBers don't like this) I like that there are sports teams in elementary school. I like that there is a curriculum and if kids don't pass they are held back and if they are advanced they are offered to move up a grade. It basically really fits what I want in a school.

Deciding between a district 2 G&T and SA union square for our second child. We are leaning towards SA because the math curriculum looks better, my child loves science so I like the daily science part, and I like the more frequent feedback at SA that I hear about with teachers (we were not as happy with our district G&T's feedback between parent/teacher conferences). When we toured SA, the kids seem happy and the place does not appear overly strict. (The teachers at our G&T were not that nice anyway).

I was very skeptical but I knew I wanted to try something different than the G&T for the reasons you mention. SA definitely is much stricter but my dc is very happy and academics are much stronger so far. I am very happy with the choice we made thus far. Like with any school the teacher does make a huge difference. We had very good teachers for the 2 years my dc has attended. I will really be better equipped to compare once my youngest is in 4th. I was very skeptical about science at a young age but I sometimes think my 1st grader knows more than my middle schooler. [ Reply | More ]

OR: One of my big complaints with our district G&T is the utter lack of reading teaching one-one-one (or in small groups with the teacher). Since K, the only time the child read one-on-one with the teacher was during the reading assessments every few months. And all daily reading was done independently, never in small groups or one-on-one with the teacher (even for 5 minutes). I have not idea if this is how reading is "taught" at other PSs or special for our G&T (I'm assuming this is NOT how it is done at other PS's). I loved how reading is actually taught daily at the SA we toured. [ Reply | More ]

Yes- we are planning on doing this. My child was only in a district G&T though (not citywide, which has the advantage of being more established and having the middle school). We've been pretty unhappy, mostly with the curriculum and the emphasis on the core curriculum and writing/ (annoying) math over other subject matter and extracurriculars. I think it works for some kids, but I think my child would respond much better to an approach that emphasized a more holistic view of learning in these younger years. He is really losing interest in math/writing due to the way it is being taught. He loves science, history, social studies, etc, but very little of that at our school. (Now I expect to have G&T moms jump down my throat. Please note that i am talking about my kid, our school, our perspective-- obviously other children and families will thrive in such an environment). [ Reply | More ]

Yes. Older ds left district g&t for private upper school. Younger dd also in g&t and will go to public MS. DS could do no wrong in public excelled. Private has given us a more honest assessment of his potential (higher than we assumed) and his performamce (just average). [ Reply | More ]

It's not gaming the system -- people can't afford it so they do what they have to do. Of course, K is the best entry point. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Trump can't deal with people asking him tough questions and who actually expect him to have answers - he can't even FAKE handling questions in a mature manner. If this news conference today is any indication, Hillary is going to have him frothing at the mouth falling on the ground in convulsions. Cannot wait. 14 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] Would you ever buy an apartment that's priced below market because it has a very high maintenance. Think 3 bedroom 2 bath with $5500 carryings costs. Why would this be unwise to purchase? Thanks 15 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Is it a combined unit (i.e., formerly a 1 BR and 2 BR)? That often accounts for higher than normal maintenance. As long as you're aware your buyers (when you eventually sell) will expect the same discount. [ Reply | More ]

I'd say it depends on the financial health of the co-op. Do you get a lot in return for that maintenance (i.e. utilities, a pool)? Does it rise every year? Is the maintenance high due to a temporary assessment? Might it ever go down (for example, if the building leases out some space to a business or refinances its mortgage)? At the very least I'd get answers on these questions and take a good hard look at the building's financials. [ Reply | More ]

I would not because I will make less money when I am old. I would rather pay more now and have less maintenance to worry about in the likely chance that my monthly income goes down. [ Reply | More ]

1) you have to figure out WHY the maintenance is so high. 2) re-sale is not necessarily hard bc the price differential offsets the maintenance - monthly costs stay about the same. however, you limit the pool of potential buyers since the maintenance is not a fixed amount after purchase and will continue to rise, so you need high income buyers.

Well the UK system is very different. For either UK state schools (US public equivalent) or UK public schools (actually US fee paying private equivalent) you take 10 O level exams at the end of 5th form (10th grade equivalent) then you specialize and take only 3-4 subjects for the last two years and take A level exams at the end of 6th form (12th grade equivalent). University places are contingent on obtaining specific grades in the final A level exams. [ Reply | More ]
