Rosie's a smart kid, yeah, but this is the thing I really admire about her. Matt was a single dad with two kids, going to school and trying to make the rent at the same time. Telling him to pay attention to her didn't cut it, so she figured out something else.

Q: I want to know the meaning of 'make the rent' here. Thanks in advance!

    Earn enough money to pay the rent.

    (The rent is the money you owe your landlord each month for the right to live in your house or apartment.)
