  • Sally's children go to public schools. Ian, Sydney, and Miriam all go to elementary school. Tom is the oldest and goes to middle school. Sally is worried that her children might get sick from school and can't afford health care for them.

  • Sally is happy that her family's health care is secure. Her oldest son Tom, offers to start helping out by working part-time after school. Sally is happy to see her young son growing up but doesn't want him to start working at such an early age.
