How can I help my aging parents? I don’t know how to help them. Then, a solution.
“Ma, I’m moving back to New York. I’ll live with you.” I can take care of her, while my father is away.
Her eyes light up. “But how could you afford to do that?” she asks.
I explain I’ve lost my job. I’m not giving anything up.
“Do you have a little money, at least? An emergency fund?”
I tell her how much money I have; no need for her to worry. I explain that, besides my savings, I will work part-time and look for full time work, afternoons.
All is well.
