Affording private school

You know, parents often assume that they can't afford to get into private school. But if you live in one of the major cities in the United States, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Washington D.C., or Boston, on order to live a solid middle-class life, you need to earn $150,000 - $200,000 a year. You can't afford to take out $20-25,000 just to educate your child, and schools know this. If you are currently paying about $10-12,000 a year for preschool, go ahead and apply for financial aid, because schools are actually looking for you. They're looking for families who need a little bit of help but not the full ride. It may increase your chances of actually getting into private school.

100 Acts of Love: A Girlfriend's Guide to Loving A Friend Through Cancer or Loss

Kim Hamer is the author of 100 Acts of Love: A Girlfriend's Guide to Loving Your Friend through Cancer or Loss, a modern, essential how-to guide offering tips on what to say (and NOT to say), and specific ways to support and love a friend, co-worker or family member who is coping with cancer, loss or any crisis.

Kim Hamer became a widow after her 44-year old husband lost his life to cancer. Their children were 12, 9 and 7 at the time. Before and after her husband’s death, friends and supporters came up with unique, creative and simple ways to help her family. She called them “acts of love” because it’s what they felt like.

Her book is a fun, straightforward compilation of many of those acts. The mission of “100 Acts of Love” is to help everyone understand and embrace their importance in the lives of their friend in crisis and to provide the tools and courage needed to support them in a truly meaningful and helpful way.
