re: Raising kids: Public vs Private - ProudLSUMom
[quote]But don't you guys worry about things such as common core, being lumped in with other kids who's family doesn't value education, etc? Conversely, I definitely don't want them overly sheltered. I went to a private Christian college and saw plenty kids like this go insane once they left the...

re: Raising kids: Public vs Private - ProudLSUMom

re: Ocean Springs, MS for a youngish family - ProudLSUMom
Well, on second thought, my son would have not been bored here outside of school. He would have been fishing all the time. I am also assuming since Pass high school is so much smaller than the school my kids attended that they wouldn't have as wide a variety of AP and elective classes. I could b...

re: Ocean Springs, MS for a youngish family - ProudLSUMom
I don't know anything about Ocean Springs. We have lived in Timber Ridge in Pass Christian since 2015. I grew up in Ascension Parish and so did my kids. I love the Pass as a retiree but I think my kids would have been bored growing up here. That said, Pass High School is a high ranked school ...

re: Need guidance buying health insurance. - ProudLSUMom
You need to find out how much your COBRA policy will be. It will probably be cheaper than if you just buy your own Blue Cross policy. I think we were able to keep COBRA for 18 months. We now have an Obama care policy and it is crap! If we bought our own coverage through Blue Cross, pre-existing ...
