How far would you be willing to go to help another mother?

I think the question explains itself. There was a question earlier from a mom who was being treated horribly by her husband. People were telling her where they lived and saying they would help if she wanted it. How much would you actually do for a mother you had never met?

  • Wow, good question. I would do anything I could but I'm afraid I wouldn't tell them where I lived. State and county sure but not exact. Safety reasons..... We have no idea how legit what they are saying is. I know as a rule I go out of my way to help others but not at the cost of safety for my kids. I would give them contact information if that would help.

  • As far as needed, I dont think I would so much be helping the mother as much as I would help the kids though. I know that involves helping her too but I would do it only for the sake of the kids

  • I would call shelters, social services for her and get her all the help she needs that way. I wouldn't take her in because other places have ALL the resources she needs for now AND to set up her future.

  • I agree w/poter who said she might not give out address and stuff.I would love to believe that the person was who they said they were...but I would also have to think about the safety of my kids....

  • I have been in some god awful places through out my life and while I know there are ppl out there who scam others I would take her and the kids in and then network w/ her to get her where she needed to be w/ her children.

  • i would go as far as needed, or as far as i could without straing myself emotionaly or fincailly.
    basicly right up to the point that it would do more damage to me then benifit to her
