Your family faces a medical emergency—due to this situation, your parent/guardian cannot work temporarily. Your family does not have much savings and will need to find ways to adjust spending.

• Given these circumstances, how can your family adjust spending?
• What action might you take to assist your family in this situation?
• How can your family better prepare for something like this moving forward?

(Essays will be judged on how well the question is answered, not the number of topics addressed.)
