After Her Husband Died, She Moved Her Family Into a One-Bedroom Apartment But Then Her Teenage Son and Daughter Found Out They Had to Share the Room

This woman, whose husband passed away recently, had to move her family into a one-bedroom apartment. Her two older kids didn’t want to share a room together, and they made their displeasure known. Here’s what the woman had to say.

Her Family Situation

The woman lost her husband some months ago, so she became a single parent to three children- a 16-year-old boy, a 14-year-old girl, and a 2-year-old girl. They used to live in a bigger house, but their financial situation turned for the worse. So, they moved into a one-bedroom apartment.

The bedroom was bigger than the living room. She put two beds in the bedroom for the older kids. “I tried adding a privacy screen in the middle so they feel like they have their own space, but they are telling me that this isn’t acceptable,” she said. On the other hand, the living room was small.

She kept her youngest child’s things and her own clothes in the hallway because there was not enough space. The hallway was close to the bathroom and kitchen, so there was a lot of foot traffic. The living room was also where they ate because they didn’t have a separate dining room.

Things Were Different

Before they moved, each child had their own room, so this was a big change for them. They weren’t comfortable with sharing a room together. In fact, she slept in the living room with her two-year-old.

She tried to get a better-paying job for months but with no success. “I can’t get a 2nd job because I can’t afford to pay someone to care for my daughter 2F outside daycare hours. Neither of my kids, 16M and 14F, are willing to help, and they say my youngest is not their responsibility,” she said.

Food Was Scarce

Things got really tough. She didn’t have enough money for food, so she started going to the food bank that gave food to people who needed it.  She had to skip meals sometimes just to make sure her kids had enough to eat.

She didn’t want to tell anyone about going to the food place because she felt embarrassed. She even told her kids that she was just trying a fasting trend for weight loss purposes when she wasn’t eating.

She became concerned about making her older kids share a bedroom, especially since they hated it. She didn’t know whether to give her bedroom to the older boy and let the two girls share the living room instead.

She was tired of hiding her problems from her kids, so she said she would talk to them about their financial troubles. She also decided to take them to the food bank to know where their meals came from.

The Online Community Had This to Say

One user said, “They’re old enough to want privacy, and it’s understandable that this is an issue for them, but THEIR DAD JUST DIED, and you HAVE NO MONEY. They’ll have to suck it up for a while.

Another person said, “Hope things will get better in the future. It’s not your fault this problem happened, and rather having a room than none at all is what I think.”
