As parents we always want to give our children the best, but lately our worries are around whether we provide what they need. I have faced unemployment as well as rising food and gas prices that have made caring for my two kids, and one more on the way, much harder. Thankfully the American Rescue Plan, which includes a more robust Child Tax Credit with advanced and increased payments of between $3,000 and $3,600 for parents will help ease this burden and give some financial peace of mind. During these times, any help is a BIG help which myself and my family are grateful for.
