If your dad loses his job (or your mom loses hers), it might not mean much to you at first. Parents have jobs, and kids don't always think a lot about them. But having a parent lose a job can bring changes you weren't expecting. Suddenly, your family is trying to save money and you can't afford everything you'd been used to. Maybe your family has to move to a smaller house, or get a cheaper car. And, on top of that, your parents are probably worried and stressed. The situation can be scary for everyone, but it is one that many people have faced and one that you can definitely survive.
