  • Well if he gets fired then he will still be eligible for Cobra insurance for a while and might be able to get unemployment for a while depending on what he got in trouble for while he looks for a new job. Just be upbeat and try to make suggestions on where he can find a new job. My dad lost his job a year ago next month because his company went under. It did bad things for his self esteem but eventually he decided to open his own business and now is very happy

  • The only thing I can suggest is just be there for them and love them. I am sorry about this situation, and will pray for you and your parents. Good luck,Hon.
