Continuation of musings from yesterday's post...
Things that I Thought Might Make the List but Upon Reflection Surprised Me That They Didn't
- Education - Before you totally flip out on me, hear me out - I think absolutely that you need a quality education. I've been surprised, the more I delve in the whole public vs. private thing, though - that you don't always get the best in private, and the public isn't the dregs of society that many people think it is. There are GREAT public schools and not so great private - and where my kids are, right now, is absolutely the best for them. But. My one public school kid is getting a very similar education to the kid who went to private high school all the way through. I know that there are problems in every school, in every school system - but no location is perfect. Each one is comprised of people. People who, by their very nature, are fallible. It pays to do your research in this category. My son is going to community college and getting a great education AND good grades - for 1/10th the price of of one his friends - who has changed majors three times in two years and is currently failing.
I'm certain that there's more, but I've totally drawn a blank.
What about you? What are some things that you just DON"T think are worth the money?
