My kids know we're "poor". At least right now we are. They know we can't afford stuff because we simply tell them we don't have money for that right now. I think the fact that they garbage people won't pick up our trash and they shut our water off a couple weeks ago makes it pretty obvious (our money problems are only temporary, we're trying to get our feet under us after a big cross-country move, it will take some time). They aren't wanting, though. They have food, clothes, a place to live, go to school, have shoes and toys. They may not get every new gadget and have designer name brands but they don't need that stuff.
My parents always tried to hide how poor we were but I knew. I wasn't stupid and heard the fights over money and saw my parents going without to get nice things for me and my brother and I felt horrible. I carried a lot of guilt as a kid over that.
