Recession tops kids’ fears

In a new BBC survey, the recession tops children’s fears. More than 60 per cent said they had been affected by the downturn, and more than 40 per cent said their parents were worried about money, up from 30 per cent in 2014, while nearly 90 per cent said they would be willing to give something up such as pocket money to help their families cope in the worsening economic climate. One in five of those questioned said they were fed up with hearing about the credit crunch.
