At some point in our lives, we all face challenges. If we are lucky, we have a network of families and friends to support to help us through the tough times. If not, you are on your own unless your larger community steps up.
We know what benefits kids the most: Closeness to their parents. Dinners with their families. Connection to their communities. A sense of agency and control in their lives. These are all things we can help give to our kids, but they have a price.
