Understanding Your Parents
For many children, their parents are their main caregivers, although there are also children who have relatives like grandparents or aunts and uncles as their main caregivers. Parents are usually the ones who support the family. In most families, at least one parent works to support the family, while the other parent stays at home to look after the children. It is also common to have both parents working.
Parents Have Problems Too
Sometimes, parents have problems too. Just like how you may feel stressed about homework or a friendship problem, parents may be stressed about work, money, grandparents (their parents), health or you, their children! Indeed, being a parent can be stressful because they have so many responsibilities!
