Michelle says she works such long hours to be able to provide more for her kids. "Growing up, I remember how I felt when I didn't have all the stuff that everybody else had, and so part of me just wants to do whatever I can to provide all of those things," she says. "Yet I feel like the price is pretty high because I'm missing so many things."

Even if the kids have a video game system, Michelle says she feels pressure to get them the latest model. It's time to make a change, she says. "They should maybe be happy with what we already have," she says. "More importantly, I want them to be happy with themselves."
