went to HS w/ her.. she has a 1 yr old.. i also have 3 other children.. and am married now. but i remember when i had a baby young, and was single.. it was rough.. even though i lived w/ my mother, it was hard..
this friend of mine however, has her own apartment, payed by the state.. also gets food stamps, so much that she cant use them all and she buys food for her parents, and they give her CASH, i know thats SO WRONG and i am shocked she told me. she gets the minimum amount of child support.. 50 dollars a week... doesnt work.. and i dont think plans to bc she gets all this stuff for free.
I still feel bad for her, only bc i remember how i struggled.. however, i worked and didnt get food stamps or anything free from the state, i worked for it all and so did my family.
i wanted to get her a little package for her and her daughter just something small for Christmas, but my husband got mad bc he thinks she gets too much as it is.
Should I just leave it and listen to my husband, or still get her something because i was once a young single mom?.. i know she isnt getting us anything for christmas, but that didnt matter to me.. i just thought i could put a smile on her face.. but my husband thinks i should give to someone more needy. we arent rich by any means, dont have a lot to give either, and are living off one income.
