I love my kids endlessly. A couple weeks ago, I not only lost my job, I got into it with my ex husband because he was laughing at me cuz I lost it and told him that I need his help with his children until i find another job, then to end the same week, My bf and I broke up. I cannot find a job anywhere and I the exhusband will not pay childsupport. There is no room at my mothers house for me to stay and I will not take my children to my fathers house who lives 2 hours away because of things he did to me as a child. I cant seem to get on my feet. Would I be a total bad parent to leave my kids with my mother and I go stay with my father and get a job and get on my feet to where I can support my kids and I? I feel I have no other choice.

Personally, I would lose it with out my kids. Even if I did see them everyday. I think if it where me I would first get on government help (medicaid, food stamps, etc) They can help with housing, transportation to work, even give you money monthly (TANF- temp. assistance for needy families). I would continue to look for a job even if it was at a 7-11 for $8/hr. In the mean time can you watch some kids? nanny atÂ someones house for like $10/hr per kid & make sure you can take your kids with you. Most of the time the parents don't mind (had to do a similar thing).Next, I would ask for help from anyone! Explain your situation to the church, or something. Also, you can get assistance on bills. I had to do it once before. Call your electric company, they will give you numbers (Church's & non profit org.) of people that can help.They put $100 on my electric bill for me once. PM me if need anything more! Keep your head up mama!
