Is it so hard to imagine that if I'm a SAHM,that we just live within our means? We have the issue with having no friends/family that can take my autistic 9 yr old son to babysit if he should get sick or be on vacation from school,so I'm unable to work. I wouldn't have a job very long if I had to take all those days off. So we live off my husband's salary,and we do just fine. My son's school assumed we were on PA! i have no problem with people being on it for a hand up,but I was insulted that they just assumed we were on it like my husband's job wasn't good enough to support us.I guess it was a pride issue for me! They looked at me like I was lazy and getting it because I refused to work so get PA instead.

yep we get that all the time :) i'm in a similar situation (child with autism) and everyone assumes we get all kinds of special benefits! in reality, we just spend our money wisely. i would probably qualify for PA, but we won't die without it, so i see no reason to get it. if more people had pride like you and i, our country would be in a much better economic state. good for you!
