My own parents were distracted as a result of any number of family
stressors. Because of that, my sister and I became highly independent.
We got jobs as soon as the law allowed. We learned how to advocate for

found our own off-campus housing and paid our own rent. We bought and
drove unsafe clunkers safely. We took care of ourselves and each other.
