By poor I mean needing assistance and/or struggling to scrape together enough money for the basic nessesities. I see many people, on here and IRL, who are just content with struggling. The never try to better themselves with education, which is typically not only free but profitable for them, or skill training. In fact they seem to dig themselves into a bigger hole by adding on additional children.

While I believe Children should be born to couples who are comfortable and can affored more than basics and have more than enough emotional stability, I understand this can't always happen. However what I can't understand is WHY some of you chose to not evolve.

if it was as simple as just deciding not to be poor anymore, don't you think most people would have done it by now??

I don't believe anyone here can be truly "struggling" if they still have their computer and internet access.

Because they aren't evolving. Lots of people who grow up that way, remain in the same situation continuing the cycle. It's not that way for everyone but some just can't break free.

Is it complacency or lack of exposer?

No, because they have a false sence of happiness.

A lot of the poor people I have seen IRL are content because they are lazy.

Because being with my son is more important than making enough to pay someone to watch him while I work
