My mother was a single mom (my father died one week after I was born). My mom raised all of us 10 kids, no welfare, no foodstamps, no help from anyone, she bought a house and every single one of us went to college. She was a social worker and we grew all our own food. She canned and stretched things. We lived very simply. I think one of the most important things she taught me is that you cannot give up.
Now a days my work is in the area of multi-generational poverty and it seems that the most difficult thing to change is a person's attitude. This remains the single biggest obstacle in breaking the cycle of poverty.
Do you agree? What do you think is the biggest obstacle to breaking the cycle of poverty.
