Do I deserve PA?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
We are a family of three. Me, DH, and a 7 month old baby girl that I breastfeed and give homemade solids to.

My husband works 40 hours at a bank and I am a SAHM and college student. I don't work at all.

Do we deserve PA?

Also, my house is a disaster because I'd rather spend time with my baby than be cleaning all day. When she naps I usually am doing homework or cleaning a little here and there.

No one deserves PA. The government only decides if you are financially eligible.

Lol. Not dangerous at all.
They can "wipe off" te table while you pick up the toys, straighten up the couch or vacuum in the living room.



Quoting Monamou:

Leave a 7 month old standing at a coffee table alone...maybe in a high chair w a wash cloth. That sounds a little dangerous.




Quoting MIA0223:

I don't see what pa has to do with it, if you qualify you qualify.


I do think that saying home, you need to get in a routine to get the house organized. Your daughter deserves to live in a clean environment.


You cleaning is not taking away from her at all. Kids need to learn to self entertain, not have momma I daddy 24/7.


Teach her to clean. At that age DD was holding her self up on the table, so I have her a rag an let her "clean" the coffee table!

It really doesn't take much to clean house. I am sure your baby sleeps.

No one deserves it. I hate this entitlement society we live in. Wah, wah, wah, me, me me. 

If you need the help and your DH's income is low enough then apply. As I have said in the past 4982798472398471234218934712938479187 PA posts this week, its cheaper to pay for your food stamps than it is to pay for your kid's state-funded daycare bill.

Homework and cooking take a lot of time.

There is a happy medium. It doesn't necessarily have to be one extreme or the other.

Sorry but I want to be with my baby 24/7 and I'd much rather have a messy house and a happy baby than a sparking clean house and a lonely baby.

Are you elderly or disabled? If not. No you do not deserve PA.

If you are raising the child to be well adjusted, Well- moraled, and kind then yes...

If not, No.

I believe in having them help clean. But they fall a lot at 7 months if they stand at all. Your house should be clean but if it isnt perfect thats ok.
