My mother struggled during this time to provide for me and my younger sister, but with no job, and no money, we were no different than the millions of other single parent families that were now on the outside looking in.

It's just curiosity. But parents telling them is not a good idea. Some parents assume that because the child has experienced many of the same events the parent has in that household the child probably knows why the parents had to divorce. Even so, the parent has to find a way to heal the scar that the child has instead of leaving it as it is just because the parents experienced the same thing.

Raising money to lower homelessness in America would not necessarily be a problem if people took it seriously. Homelessness is often overlooked due to the outstanding amount of money it would take to help the homeless. Though it would probably take a few years, getting the money to help them is possible. Another problem American may face as we help assist the homeless is that we do not know how to help them in the meantime. For example, we do not want to keep the homeless on the streets as we raise the money to help them, so we need a solution.
