If you feel comfortable in a community - your children probably will as well. Take your time, immerse yourself in the community - do some grocery shopping there, walk the streets a little, visit a park or two, talk to people - allow yourself to get the feel of it. Here is one suggestion, I apply the "do they wave back" test when I visit a community with buyers. I wave, and I watch and take note - if people acknowledge me, smile and wave back, I take it as a very good sign. If they don't, that makes a real impression as well.
When all is said and done, the best advice is this - trust your instincts - no one knows you or what is "home" to you better than you do.
Unwavering Commitment to Service
If that's peer pressure, then give my kids some more of it!
Living in either an affluent or poor area presents its own unique social peer pressures. The difference is parental involvement and understanding who you are not what some else thinks you should become. Those who believe in status, cache, with no belief in substance will gravitate toward each other. Those with gravitas will become your allies.
