What is the worst advice someone has ever given you? One of my friends told me DH and I should have another kid (DD is 2 and my only kid) right now. That the economy isn't so bad and that my DD is old enough for us to have another kid. This wouldn't be so bad if she didn't tell me she plans on living off of goverment assistance and she is living with with her parents with her DH and her 2 kids. She told me I should do that too. DH and I have our own place, with no goverment assistance. I get that it is there to be used, but I don't plan on living off of it.
