Holiday Season Depends on Family Financial Planning
parents withhold their concerns, their children continue to up the ante for this
year's Christmas take. The risk is either a disappointing Christmas or
overwhelming New Year's bills.
Children typically respond and adjust better to change when they are part of the process. The recession is real and discussing it with them can help them to cope better and you to feel better. Children may be initially disappointed and that would be normal and reasonable. However, they too must learn to live within their means and make the best of life and circumstances. A memorable Christmas may just be one where everyone comes together with a workable plan to enjoy the day.
