Money issues dominate the news these days. Many families have faced difficult economic challenges in recent years as they tried to cope with reduced incomes, job loss, debt, foreclosure, or a higher cost of living. Many parents worry about making ends meet, and some parents are genuinely concerned about whether they will ever be able to afford to send their children to college. Money issues at home can drive a wedge between relationships and can frighten young children when there are disagreements or arguments.
