In writing about the housing crises, I’ve been trying to figure out the best way to relate to parents. It’s fairly easy to feel the pain of folks who are losing their homes – watching children cry while being displaced from their homes is heart wrenching to watch.
After all, the kids didn’t do anything wrong. They are victims of the larger world around them and the mistakes made by their parents.
And while it’s difficult to feel sorry for folks losing their mini-mansions, as mentioned in this Washington Post story , forced upheaval of that sort is not good for young children or even teens.
