  • How old are your children? When living on your own you may qualify for assistance with childcare. You will also qualify for food stamps. Maybe you can find an elderly neighbor to come and watch your kids in your home if they are well behaved and 'easy". It would be cheaper than a day care. How long has it been since you worked. Give a little more info and maybe i can brainstorm some ideas for you.

  • You want to get out? You need a baby sitter? Ask Gramma and Grandpa? But, you should have thought about what your life would be like BEFORE having 4 kids. ANd maybe gotten married to a good guy first? I feel sorry....get some counseling, find a good job and then you can afford to get out on your own and not have to live with your Mom and Dad.

  • Start scoping out day care options while you are conducting your job search. If you need help with resumes, coverletters or job search strategy, drop me a note. -Robin
