This article in the NYT is about a teen phenom from the 70s who had a terrible time on the tour, so wants other girls to be "spared" that.

Jaeger is an only child. Her Dad was no fun to be around (beat her, didn't eat dinner with her). Other families are not like hers. I think it is pretty arrogant for her to decide that not being on the tour would be better for teens.

Lots of teens, only children with working parents, come home to an empty house. And with money tight they aren't always the popular kids at school. Why has she decided that that life would be better than the possible solitude of the tour? And money is not a small issue.
