[ - ] If you're zoned for pretty good schools (average 7-9), would you still send to private if you have the money? We have an amazing private school that I would love to send our kids to and we have the money but the elementary school near us is pretty good. (8 on greatschools with good reviews). Middle school is just okay. High school is great but private is K-8. If you had money would you still send to private? 7 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

We regrouped quickly, but honestly, we blamed ourselves for having been the ones who made the original mistakes of presuming she had a shot at our alma mater that she could count on. We were wrong. It was bad when she was waitlisted, it was worse when everyone told her she'd get in regular decision. When she did not, it was devastating for all of us. Kind of rocked our world at the time. But you move on, and we are thrilled about where she is now, and she loves it there. It's our own fault for selling anything too soon. [ Reply | More ]

If you live in low income housing in another borough, and send your dd (about to be a senior) to private in Manhattan on full scholarship, and she had a boyfriend in Manhattan from a wealthy family, how would you feel about all their dates being in Manhattan with your daughter spending the night with the other family? Would you insist they send her home on their dime (because you cannot afford to pay for that) or would you want the boy to come at least some of the time to where you live?

He should come take her on dates wherever you live. Even if you are in public housing, these days there are gentrified neighborhoods all around public housing. Surely he can find a restaurant. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] DH and I have a $950,000 budget for a second home. Where should we go... blah house in the hamptons but close to the action and close to many of our DCs friends who summer there. Northern neck: great house with pool but we don't know anyone. Berkshires: great house with pool and decent driving distance from my siblings and cousins who live in Boston burbs so they could visit. 34 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Kids only enjoy the summer when they can play with their friends. I would buy a house in the Springs section of East Hampton so you could easily drive children to their playdates [ Reply | More ]

Spoiled. It's a perfectly nice house, good enough to live in permanently, beats most of the apartments people live in here and MC suburban homes. Does it have to be a mansion for UB tastes? [ Reply | More ]

The OP is being deliberately stupid. It is obvious she should rent for the month of July in the Hamptons to be near friends and then rent for August in Berkshires to be near family [ Reply | More ]

Exactly. With that budget they could easily rent a nice place for $400,000-$475,000 a month for all of July and then have plenty left over for the Berkshires in August. [ Reply | More ]

The families of your children's friends will evaporate as soon as they hit the teen years. Will "the action" really matter to you as you get older? Do you want to create a situation where you can visit more with your family? Will they really care about coming? Boston burbs people really don't need to escape anywhere for a break like city people. I would say get a house where you will simply enjoy your own family and your summer experiences, that's the only thing you will really go into the golden years with. Not how much time you spent with "the action" or people whose names you will have long since forgotten in 20 years. [ Reply | More ]

Sorry I disagree with you. Kids can get along with any group of other kids they are plunked together with. This is the whole premise of camp and why it works. You don't need to put kids together with their "friends" that they see all year long anyway. It's not even healthy to force kids together with exactly the same kids all year long. They need to meet different kinds of kids all through their upbringing. [ Reply | More ]

It will definitely be "Blah." Our kids are at a TT on the UES so yea... it won't compare to many of the places their friends have, but would be fine and we would make it quaint. Many of my kids friends do not have summer homes so this would be "cool" for them. [ Reply | More ]

One more piece of info: Our kids go to camp for a month every summer, so while being close to their friends would be great... they have another summer social outlet. DH and I would go every weekend. I don't work and he can do summer schedule where he works from home on Fridays. [ Reply | More ]
