i can tell you that i know a lot of single moms who does not work and still make it. they went to the social service at our state and apply for food stamps, welfare, and other organizations out there are willing to help us. i got medicare, food stamps and organizations thru my kids school to help with free therapy, psychiatrist, and find food pantries as well. and they even have a person to visit my kids once a week and check on their school progress, helps my daughter get a job, and help me by taking my kids to doctor's apt. so i don't have to miss work, find groups of other parents for me to be with and if i need to have a certified family to watch my kids for couple of hours or a weekend they will do that too. so you just have to know how to find it. i did it on my own raising three teenagers with no child support till this day and i did it, yes it is hard and seem impossible but it is not.
