If you lived at home still with a relitive with your chldren would you move out right away? An ex friend of mine still is living at her relitives house. She has two children, hasnt gotten in a job since her first child was born 6 years ago and doesnt help out at all. She relys on childsupport and welfair and is more worried about going out and having her own life then even raising her children. She just dumps her kids off where ever she gets an offer. The problem i have though is recently she got a hud home and could have moved in and been on her own, but the problem was she couldnt bring her two animals. Since it's a government owned home they dont want animals. Well insted of finding homes for her pets she decided not to take the home. She lives in one room with three children. If it where me i would have taken that home in a heartbeat. I am sorry but your love for your pets should never be more then your love for your childrens well being.
