My husband grew up in poverty and I grew up in a middle class family. We have struggled over the years. Now we are better off than his family. Yes we still struggle but we have a nice home. Nicer than he has ever had. He has worked hard since the age of 16yrs old. So not every child stays in poverty because they grew up in poverty. Not only that I have family who grew up in poverty that have worked hard their whole life for what they have. So quit judging people who live in poverty for various reasons and saying their children will live in poverty when they are adults. That isn't always true. Some children that live in poverty make life better for themselves as adults. I will not respond to rude or thoughtless comments.
