One of our readers has sent me a bunch of topics to use (which I always welcome) and one she would like for us to discuss is:
How do you tell the kids your house is going into foreclosure and your family is going to have to move?
Do you have to tell them? Could you pretend like you’re just moving if you get out before the sign goes up? How soon do you tell them? Do you only tell them when there’s a foreclosure sign hanging in the yard? How do you help them cope at school? Do you try to move out quickly so there’s no stigma or stay in the house mortgage-free as long as you can?
