If I want to help my family recover. The first step I can do is organize and come up with a schedule for everyday. I can also help my grandparents and my area to clean up our environment and improve public health. If I continue to look for money and work harder I can change my lifestyle and start my own life in the future without worrying about my poor sick family.
To make my life easier, I think my family should move to start a better life by living in a shelter and to get a better job to pay food food and support of the family. Every time I move I feel like my life is falling apart and becoming worse. I hope everyday gets better when people donate money to my family. My father is injured so he cant make money, so my mother has to work double shifts.
My mother and father have to acknowledge how they led to being poor. I wonder if its all my grandparents fault maybe its because of money debt, unemployment, health problems, troubled relationships or other factors. I must accept these issues for what they are because I can overcome them.
I feel that my future will be the same as my life right now but worse. I hope that once I turn 18 I can begin a new fresh start, but it will not be easy because I will still need to support my family. I lave them, they might not survive living off of just my mother. In the future I can do a lot with just a little amount of money. If I begin to save a portion of the money I have now, I could buy food to support myself.
I go to my grandparents trailer everyday to drop off my four other siblings. Then, I go look for jobs to do in the community. The most money I make in one week would be $5 if I get lucky but its usually a few cents each month. There aren't any jobs to do because no one wants to hire anyone poor. So I look around on the ground for money.
My life as being poor is very difficult. I have to work so hard everyday to try and support my family, that means I don't even have time to play around like the other kids do. I have to go around the streets looking for food and asking for money. It is very embarrassing for me to walk around town, dressed very poorly as I see people stare at me, just makes me want to cry.
Children growing up in low-income families face challenges that children from advantaged families do not. Child poverty is throughout the world, even in several wealthy countries. Social and economic deprivation during childhood can have a lasting effect, making it difficult for children who grow up in low-income families to escape poverty when they become adults. Poverty is child endangerment. Along with that children might not even have enough education to live a better life. These children will face constant changing in their lives due to surviving issues which involve location and life style transition.
Generational poverty occurs in families where at least two generations have been born into poverty. This family has no shelter, so they have to sleep on the hard cold ground without warm clothes or a clean environment. The cycle of poverty has been defined as when poor families stay in poverty for at least three generations.
