I'm sorry. You're not providing much value here. Are you going to keep trying to prove your "silly" points?

The word "raise" threw you off? If you're living in an area with kids for a few months it's basically the same experience.

Yes. There’s a massive difference between putting down roots and raising kids in a place versus staying somewhere short-term.

Let me clarify for you. Raising kids is what the OP does every day. Whether they are in a camper traveling all over, staying in temporary hotels or living in a house in a strange city for three months, that's all part of "raising" kids. Stupid semantics argument aside, why can't you stay out of threads that have to do with raising kids? From what I can tell you don't have kids so you really only need to worry about yourself. You're coming across like Robin Quivers doling out parenting tips

You’re turning it into a parenting issue. No one wants to be affected by crime, kids or not. It just doesn’t warrant the paranoia of fretting over petty crimes in north Phoenix (where this conversation began).

Ugh.

My only issue was with your terminology that "most anywhere" in the Phoenix area is safe. That gives the impression that maybe he doesn't need to investigate other places as almost everything is safe. With the knowledge that he's looking at lower income areas, I simply disagreed with that since the OP mentioned his primary issue is safety due to having kids. Most lower income areas in the Phoenix area are NOT safe, especially with kids in the equation.

Stupid semantics aside, most lower income areas anywhere in the world aren’t the pinnacle of safety. Did anyone actually need to tell him that? Most anywhere in the Phoenix area IS safe. The safe areas far outnumber the few higher-crime areas, therefore the statement is accurate.

There's a spectrum. On one end you have very safe. On the other, you have dangerous. The more you travel on the spectrum to one side or the other, it becomes more or less safe. You seem to be implying that it's a black or white issue. Is Chandler safer than south Phoenix? Yes. Is Gilbert safer than Chandler? Yes. I can't believe it has to be explained to you in this way. Then again, I'm not sure who, or how old you are.

You’re unfamiliar with the area and it shows. There are parts of Chandler that are way worse than some parts of Phoenix. It’s not at all black and white. It’s funny how you’re arguing that there is a spectrum and then trying to paint everything as binary.

Bottom line, if you’re so worried about safety, pony up and pay for an affluent area, not BFE San Tan or Apache Junction. It seems like you’re incredibly concerned about crime, but not willing to pay for the isolation you seem desperate for.
