This is an interesting read.  Homeownership is typically a more “permanent” residence than renting an apartment is. That’s got to be a big factor in having a positive effect on children. Children need stability and structure which a more permanent residence can provide. Plus, what’s better than your own swingset in your own backyard?  🙂
