Living in a small community can be the perfect fit for some people, and completely wrong for others. The suburban houses with Plano fences look quaint and adorable to some and disgusting and robotic to others. Living in such a community, with a big house and a Richardson fence, has its pros and cons. It is a great area to raise children. Good schooling, safe areas and lots of playmates are available. The people often do lots of things together as a community, building lasting friendships. On the other hand, areas like this tend to be sheltered from the real world. Some people have a hard time with this. It can also prove to send those who have lived there for their entire lives into a culture shock when they leave.
Raising children in small, close-knit towns is ideal for most parents. Kids are exposed to a well structured and safe community. Often areas like this have very good public schools near by. So children receive a top-notch education with no extra price other than living. Also, the area attracts lots of families with young children, so there are play-mates galore. Children build lasting friendships with next-door neighbors in areas like this. It is a luxury to be so close to their peers while growing up.
Also, parents can bask in the friend aspect of communities such as these. Often, since they are smaller and nicer, the adults have lots of groups and clubs for one another. Men get together for things like poker, father-son lacrosse leagues, and basketball. Women can start gardening or book clubs, babysitter circles, and exercise groups. Also, things like travelling dinners are popular. This is where a group of couples go to each others houses for different courses of a meal throughout the night. The availability for these types of adult activities creates lasting friendships for the parents in the community.
However, some people don’t like small towns because they are not very in-touch with reality. The perfection and good fortune that surround the children often gives them a warped sense of the world. Also, the fact that most people in these areas are wealthy adds to the children’s misinterpretation of life. Some find this annoying if they have not lived there their entire lives. Also, when kids leave for college and things they often experience a big culture shock. Being thrown into the real world after growing up in the clean, well groomed society they were used to is a big change.
Small towns have their ups and downs for everyone. A lot of the people who live in them will testify that it is a perfect place to live, and those who don’t live there will tell you differently. They don’t fit all personalities. Small towns are a great place to raise a family and children. Schools are good, there are lots of similar families and it is a safe area. Also, adults find themselves very social and involved in these tighter-knitted communities. Some people dislike small towns because they shelter their inhabitants from the real world. It can be a perfect living situation for one family and completely wrong for the next.
Chuck R. Stewart vacationed at a ranch and he was very impressed with the Plano Fences and the Richardson Fence company that had erected the vast amount of fencing.
