I think we will solve the problem with Universal, of letting people who WANT to go, go and those those who don't, stay behind. It may mean my husband will go and I have a day with the kids. If my oldest wanted to go, I would do it, but she doesn't care. I can feel the peer pressure though.
This is a good example of wanting to be a people pleaser. My advice, DON'T DO IT! SPEAK UP AND BE UNDERSTOOD!!!
People will understand, and if they don't.. TOO BAD SO SAD!
This really applies to wide range of things, not just the monetary. Treat this as a chance to build character and break free of other peoples expectations.
