A major stress is the high stress of living, with parents concerned their children will be pushed out of cities

VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) –┬áIt looks like more parents in Metro Vancouver think the high cost of living is going to push their children out.

At least, that’s according to a┬árecent poll from Research-Co.

It says a majority of parents across the province are feeling tense about issues like finances, especially when it comes to their children.

Of those polled, 66 per cent say they expect their children will have to move away, up 24 points since a similar poll was conducted last year.

Meantime, it seems many of us are stressed out financially.

Across the province, 2 in 5 of those polled say it is ‘moderately difficult’, or ‘very difficult’ to make ends meet.
