family over money

in most cases that you seen or know about , would you think da money is given more of a priority over family ?

cuz ik ppl who have more than enough money to live well but they say da they cant see themselves getting less income than what tehy are right now .

like my neighbor's daughter is 14 and going back to mexico , cuz her daughter is tired of being by herself . either using the comp or watiching tv (those are her source of entertainment) and her parents work at night , they get plenty of seep and time to get their errands done while she's at school but they just dont seem to spend time with her . ummm her parents are sad to let her go but they say they know is the best for her since they done spend time with her nor try to !
i've also seem other cases but this is the main one lol i wanted to write about , and althought $$$$ is a necessity , wouldnt you agree da family time is as well ?

  • Family is important, but so is money. One can't eat without money, or buy clothes, or have electricity, so money is VERY important. Its called finding a balance between the two

  • Some people really just can't balance those things well. Its unfortunate, and in my life wrong, but its the truth. At least those parents recognize their failing and are letting their daughter go somewhere that she won't be alone anymore. Often enough parents like that feel justified in ignoring their family.

  • Just depends. If the only job they have is at night then they have to make do. some income is better than no income and having time with your kids. It can be hard to balance work and kids though, especially with odd work schedules.

  • Those parents are lazy to not even try to balance their time with their daughter. And that goes for your grammar too.
