My husband and I are going through a rough time and can't afford groceries at the moment. He's working full time and I just had a baby and can't afford daycare right now so I stay home, but in the fall we are both going to start school and I'm going to be working because I found a program that will assist in childcare as long as I'm working or going to school and I'll be doing both. But, until then we are kind of in a bind b/c even though my hubby works ALOT his job has cut his hours back and we are struggling. I don't want any drama, but I see tons of posts about how people abuse the system and I don't want to be one of them so I just want honest opinions, but no rude comments please :)Answer Question

If you need them because you are going through a rough time, you aren't abusing the system. You have a plan in place so that you will (hopefully) not need them for long. I would consider it abusing the system if you had to lie or falsify records of your ability to qualify for them or if you sold them for cash; otherwise you're just another family in need & this should help you get back on your feet.

my husband used to work 40-50 hours a week. now he work 20-25 hours a week, now i need the help and i don't care what people say about it . i receive food stamp, wic and housing help. if you need the help and your family is in need that not abusing. you shouldn't care what people in this side have to say . you do what you need to do.

I consider abusing the system if one is lying about theirincome or living situation to qualify. I don't agree with the other posts that went around the other day saying that being a sahm because you don't want your kids in day care is crap. I am a sahm and receive state help, and I am happy about it cause I am blessed to be able to do so. theres too many downs to daycare. If you need the help and qualify then take the help.
