Also, sometimes people are thrown on the street because their landlord wasn’t keeping up mortgage payments. Court gives eviction date, poor tenant gets it in the back and is thrown need to tread softly on this issue. Great read though.
Not giving your child the education they need and deserve in this country is borderline child abuse. They need to go, to get structure, to develop socially as well as academically, to have a chance in this competitive world to succeed.
