Soon to be single mom of 7 kids....advice please

I know I can do it. I take care of the house and kids by myself everyday. My question is how am I gonna do it financially? I have 3 work at home businesses and I do bring home about $500 with these three. I know I will be okay financially, I am just scared..but I cant live what I am going through right now. Is there anyone else who is a single mom of a lot of children..or knows of one who is? What do they do for work?

  • $500 isn't much...Your going to need an actual job to support those kids.

  • SarahP did you not read the question...part of it was her asking how she was gonna do it financially. But I agree with PP take him to court for child support and definitely look into food stamps if you haven't already. And also how old are they, if most of them are in school maybe you could get someone in your family or a friend to watch them while the others are in school and you could get a part time job. But Good Luck. You are amazing, and it takes a very strong person to support 7 kids by yourself. I hope every thing works out.

  • I don't get it. You ask how you will be okay financially, then you state you know you will be okay financially.
