Would you do ANYTHING to make sure your family was taken care of?

I can honestly say I would. God forbid something happened and I was losing everything and couldn't find meaningful work, I would find me a strip club and dance my ass off. I know what its like to go to bed hungry at night. Me being the oldest of 7 I sacrificed many meals so that my mom and siblings could eat. I would never want my kids to experience this. Pride would go right out the window if my hard. Work and education still weren't enough. Go ahead and bash.

  • Good for you. I too would do what I needed to see that my family was taken care of.
    When my first husband left me with three children, I worked three jobs to see that they were taken care of.

  • Amen!! I'm frustrated by another post right now because they are so inconsiderate to people who don't have the best circumstances. I would do ANYTHING I could to support my family and make sure my kids are fed and housed. If I'm a thief because I am late on my rent or electric bill because I chose to eat , then I guess I'm a thief!

  • I made this question because I seen a question about stealing groceries or something like that. If it had to be done I would do it. I wouldfeel horrible but my children are first. I hate when people act like they're circumstances are set in stone and nothing could go wrong. Even stone breaks. Life changes.

  • Yes I would. But, I don't really see stripping as the demeaning career that most woman do. I would also prostitute myself if it meant my children would eat and have a roof. Again, I believe that prostitution should be legal (with rules of course). I think about the only thing I WOULDN'T do is kill people for money.
