This. OP, explain what benefits kids of a family making 1.6 mil a year can have that kids from a family making 1 mil a year can't have? If you are spending anything more than a few hundred k on your kids that is not good for them, and they will end up having drug problems. I went to a TT boarding school and a TT college. Saw this all the time. The kids whose parents spent mega money on them all ended up addicted to drugs or video games or sex or otherwise living sad lives. The ones from wealthy families whose parents put emphasis on family time over materialism were the ones who faired well. I feel bad for your kids that you can obviously afford a stay at home parent but choose to spend that money on material goods versus time with your kids. [ Reply | More ]

My dh makes 8 figures and I don’t work, mostly because both of us are quite incompetent and cannot work and parent at the same time. I assume that you don’t work and have “way more money than” op because your dh or your daddy worked his ass off AND you can quite incompetent and cannot work and parent at the same time. I know the fact that some people are competent and can parent while working is beyond your understanding. So let me put it in a way that you can understand: 300k after tax money a year can buy you a Wl policy of about 15 mm guaranteed death benefits which usually yields about 30-45 mm tax free at the time of one’s death if structured properly. 30 mm allows a loser who never worked a day in her life to say “I actually have way more money than you and don’t have to work” to someone who makes 7 figures.

Life insurance benefits are not tax free unless the insurance is owned by a trust. And with 300k of annual premium as in my example, transfers into the trust aka premium payments have to be carefully planned and documented or “structured properly” in order for those transfer to be gift tax free. Clearly you never have to worry about estate tax. Good for you. [ Reply | More ]

First, I assume you meant to say ILIT. Second, it’s not a child who pays the premium. It’s the trust that pays. And you need to make a gift to the trust which may incur gift tax at high premiums. Third, you probably only have minimal premium amount i.e. less than 60k so you don’t file form 709. Lastly, as I said, you don’t understand estate tax laws because you don’t need to. It’s okay.

Not much to explain. To clarify. Wl is extremely low rish and hence a bad investment option for most people.

There is a guaranteed minimum. 3. The projected value is pretty accurate. 4. You don’t need to lift a finger to get the return. Again. Wl is here as an example. It’s a bad investment for most people.

Academic medicine is working at a university/medical school, which involves research, teaching, scholarship, AND patient care.

Academic physicians see patients as well, but they are also expected to contribute to the field of medicine overall through research and training the "next generation" of doctors. They don't see as many patients as private practice MDs. [ Reply | More ]

It's better technically but often you get a new group of kids when classes shift around, so when you invite the whole class you are inviting new friends from the new school year, plus have to invite a few kids from the old class your kid bonded with. My guess is that makes things more complicated and explodes the guest list. [ Reply | More ]

For a few years you do and you have to invite the whole class, that's why it gets complicated for summer bday kids. If you had been with the same kids all year you want to invite them to your bday, but next school year you will have very different kids in your class, they shift them around in crowded public school quite a bit. I think this is probably the reason people cram bday parties in June. [ Reply | More ]

In public schools kids have new classmates every year. If your kid has summer bday and wants to invite the whole class they are likely to want to invite the kids they've spent the last school year with, not brand new kids starting in september, right? That's the reason many opt for June parties. Sometimes parents band together and do some collective bday parties for all summer kids in class, like one massive playdate. It's about little kids usually those in PreK-2nd grade and not very likely after 2nd grade. [ Reply | More ]

I just finished The Staircase on Netflix. The most interesting thing about it is how it was filmed over the course of 15 years. At one point it makes a jump 8 years into the future and the physical changes in the cast are a little startling. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] So if Deblasio plan to rid SHSAT takes effect, and in its place the top 7% of middle schools get admission, who would this extend to? ONLY public noncharter middle schools or all public middle schools including charters? And what about students in private schools who want to enroll who also want to enroll, or have a 'chance' to qualify? 25 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Please define what you claim as 'gifted' - I guess in your definition, 99% are not gifted which is fine as 1). it's subjective; 2). we don't need 130 million Steve Jobs - we need one and 123,000 developers and engineers at Apple who have made all those great products, and most of whom in your dictionary are not gifted; 3). being gifted alone won't lead anyone far - it's also the hardworking. I don't know if Speyer or Stuy will have next Steve Jobs, but certainly they will have a lot of students who will be able to work for the next Boeing or Apple because they are willing to study hard and work hard, not just for themselves but also to contribute to this great country.

Then you should take issue with Speyer. The school was founded because its founders claimed there was no school in all of NYC that caters to gifted advanced learners. The school's mission was to fill a void to educate gifted kids who could not learn (let alone be successful) in any other school in the city before Speyer. [ Reply | More ]

I stopped reading at "Speyer gets results, no doubt". That school does NOT get results, unless the result you want is lots of chess participation and placing 2nd and 3rd in most tournaments. For a school that claims to accept only "gifted" students, who then receive a "gifted" education for 9 years, their high school exmissions are same as any other 3T schools. [ Reply | More ]

There are a few Trump supporting families at Speyer that make life miserable for the rest of the families but it is not the reason not to apply to the school. It has many other problems including, yet another resignation of their HOS. Apparently, according to DF, they'll be looking for their 5th HOS of school since they opened in 2009. [ Reply | More ]

Such bullshit. Gender is a social construct. A FEMALE gave birth. A FEMALE breastfed. The fact that the female took cross sex hormones in order to grow facial hair and change her voice is toxic to her female body. Testosterone CAUSES heart disease and diabetes when a female takes them. This female is shortening her lifespan. This is never talked about. And when it is, their voices are silenced. This female had to cease taking testosterone in order to ovulate and get pregnant. [ Reply | More ]
