SALT LAKE CITY -- Whether it's a job loss, foreclosure or change in economic status, you may be trying to hide it from your children -- but kids know.
Heidi Baker, director of the child and family development center at the University of Utah says kids hear the whispers and feel the strain, so talk to them.
"We need to be positive rather than stress kids out, because kids do feel stressed," she said.
Baker says explain what's going on but at a level the child understands.
"You need to be honest but not panic children," she recommended.
She says reassure children you will always love them and keep them safe.
