The letter from Jean Berry is a gross stereotypical misrepresentation of large families. My husband and I raised eight children. We were able to give them parental time with homework, scouting, camping outings, trips, visits to parks, museums, zoos, etc. We did not give them a college education, but we helped them to get one as they helped themselves. All of our children have at least one bachelor's degree. All were excellent students throughout their school lives. Several were valedictorians, National Merit scholars, etc. One graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Stanford University.

Patricia Klein's article "Private School's Traffic Irks Neighbors" (April 9) not only overlooked The Buckley School's current parking regulations but also stereotyped the Buckley student as a rich, spoiled snob. The Buckley student body is extremely concerned about the over congestion of Stansbury Avenue and is sympathetic to the neighbors' unfortunate situation. Along with the administration, we have helped to alleviate the problem by initialing reforms, such as restricting parking on the west side of Stansbury, controlling the influx of traffic by staggering classes, permitting delivery vehicles only through the rear entry of the school and reducing the number of evening and weekend school meetings.
