My dad is going through financial problems

My dad is going through some financial problems. I am not able to take up various activities because of this. He never says anything, but I know he wants to fulfil all our wishes. My parents and my sister never tell me anything. They think I’m still too young to understand, but I’m sure I will understand.

Dear Richa, your dad loves you very much and does not want you to be upset or worried by the financial problems of the family. I am sure he can handle them, though he may not be able to, at this moment, to fulfil all the wishes of his children. Tell him that you appreciate his efforts and sacrifices and that what you really need is his love and not material things.
