  • Talk with your ex about paying part, check with the school to see if there are scholarships to help pay for the cost(many have them for low income families) ask his grandparents if they would like to contribute.

    if all else fails just tell him you don't have the cash.

  • anon was suggesting a work from home job where you work from the computer, which your medical issue must not prevent you from because you're on one now.

  • tntmom- I already talked to his dad he says he isn't able to help either. I would never ask my parents for help it's not their issue or problem.

    His father doesn't help really. He pays cs that it. I support both my kids on my own.

  • tnt-I have tried some online jobs that are not legit.I also am going to be doing school soon so I really don't have the time to do anything else online. I start school on Aug 20th. So I am going to be tied up with that.
