Many families worry about money. It might seem like some of your friends and classmates have more money than you do, but the truth is that most families feel stressed out about money.
When parents are worried about money, it can be hard to get time from them. Your parents might be working at more than one job, or be going to school part-time. Or maybe they can’t find a job at all. This could mean that you don’t get to have much fun together because your parents are always too tired or too stressed.
