Unless your child has a special circumstance like a disability.....then you shouldn't be a SAHM.

My son has health issues and I refuse to let anyone babysit him at this point. He requires breathing treatments every four hours with other medications. Until that clears up, there will be no working for me and really could care less who judges or bashes me for that. He is my baby and I won't trust anyone with his health but myself at this point.

Why don't u mind ur own business on ppls needs. My husband is in military and were on wic to help our daughter out so we can provide for her. He works hard and I'm a sahm so I can watch our daughter. And not throw her in daycare.

If working I would then need state help with day care which would cost your tax dollars much more than the Medicaid we rarely use for the kids. That's all we get. And I'm a full time student if you are wondering if I have a plan to not only qualify for minimum wage jobs.

Here, anyone that has over 4 children automatically qualifies. Doesn't matter their income. Or at least, that's how it used to be. I knew an attorney who had 5 kids with his wife and they collected WIC just because they could. I don't know if it's changed since then or not.
