Blame Themselves

Swedish Children Worried About Economic Problems at Home

The Swedish organization, the Rights of the Child, claims that they are receiving more hot line telephone calls from children worried about their family’s economic situation in these troubled times.

The usual family and disciplinary problems are being more and more replaced by youngsters assuming the blame for unemployment, debts and unpaid bills – not knowing how to answer when asked when asked what Christmas presents they received when they didn’t get any at all.

The organization encourages parents to include the children in family budget discussions – since youngsters often feel better when they are not left out of family problems – and have to know that they are not the only ones in the world with worries.
