My question is specifically for families with higher incomes - low 6-figures in and average COL area. What do you consider essential skills for your children to learn that are likely class-related? DH & I were talking today about wines. Our children are way too young to drink, but I want them to know the difference between types of wines, food complements, etc. I am from a working class family, and I've had to kind of figure it all out on my own. I guess I'm just thinking about a more systematic approach with DC.
I was telling my husband about going into a restaurant that someone else suggested. The entire menu was in Italian. I don't really remember anything about the restaurant except that I kept praying that I could guess well enough from Italian (which I don't speak) to French to English to like what I ordered. I want my children to be better prepared. I'm curious as to what other parents in this income bracket feel are essential bits of knowledge.
