I just signed up for Cash Assistance. With that, I have to go to a program for job searching M-F 845am-330pm(everyday). Now that is no problem for me, however with the kids' schedules, it is a conflict.
Nate is home all day on mondays & Thursdays,
Chloe is home Tuesdays and Thursdays.
They will pay for child care for the days the kids are there. The other days, i would need to hire a babysitter since the SO works during the day. I have no family other than him that is close enough to help.
My question, is it worth the hassle?
1. Go to the program and get $200 every two weeks
2. Keep my son home from daycare all week with me while my daughter goes to preschool three days, and look for a job on my own and use child support to pay the bills until then.
