How do I explain to my children that there might not be a christmas if I can't even convince my mother that I can't afford Christmas this year. Its not that I don't want to but the debts are overwhelming and they keep coming. I left my husbanc and he left me with the debt same as my childrens fathers. One minute I'm figuring it all out and the next I'm not. I don't want to hurt them because I know they are looking forward to Christmas. Anyone have any suggestion that avoid me being the worst parent ever.
