Family units face stresses from time to time. How you handle them is important in maintaining a functional family. But what if your stresses involve finances?
What if you have young children and you and your husband find out you are deeper into debt than you thought? It begins to take a toll from disturbing phone calls from creditors to threatening letters in the mail.
You have found debt solutions by working with a consolidation program. But the calls won’t stop. Your moods are now being affected in a negative way causing you to react in front of your children.
The best thing to do is not discuss personal issues such as this in front of your children. Children can sense stressful tones and anger. If you discuss these problems too much, the stress will affect them even causing behavioral problems. Of course this is unintentional but children feed off of positive or negative behavior.
The best thing to do to is stay focused on your debt program and stay on course. As soon as the winds blow over your family can get back on track and never return to debt again.
Life is hard enough with the addes stress in life. Keep it together by communicating in private and working as a team to resolve whatever struggles you may have.
