****EDIT Government shut down WILL affect WIC

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
I know a lot of mothers and children rely on WIC for milk, formula, etc so please be aware! If there is a shut down, there will be no WIC available.



****
I created this post just as a heads up. So that families could plan ahead in a possible crisis. I say crisis because for some, WIC is their only means for milk and formula.


This post really took a painful turn. Where's the compassion? The empathy?

There's so much hate, so many cruel hateful women just gouging each others eyes out I'm appalled.

Why don't you ladies stop and reassess your attitudes. Your close minded way of thinking.

I hang my head in shame at the things I've read. You should be ashamed of yourselves. Think about your behavior here and how it possibly effects your families and how your way of thinking is passed onto the next generation. Things happen, people need help.

Please explain to me how I'm treating people badly.

I don't think my way is best. I think there is a best way, though, and we intentionally went that route.


Quoting CelticMamabc:

I am successful my family is successful I scrimped and saved and we live well but not everyone is as lucky as I am! I am defending people from people like yourself who think only their way is best and that others who need help (Which I am sure you get help from someone time to time... Even if it's so you can go on a date with your husband you get help.) don't have to feel or be treated as badly as people like you think you're entitled to treat them

Quoting SommelierMom:

Cliché much? Some of us are actually successful and proud of it.

You don't need to believe it, dear. Calling me a liar says more about you than it does me.

And I'm not full of myself, I'm proud of all DH and I have accomplished.

So you think you're way is best... That was a diplomatic way of saying just that.

You stated that using WIC/PA isn't raising their own children... That was putting people down for using the system.

Seriously you felt entitled to give yourself a pay on the back because 1. You married a man making above average money and 2. You wanted to gratify your superiority by making a snide remark to the woman below on the origanal thread

Did that spell it out enough for you dear

Im only on it for my 2 month old for the formula bc the cost is so outrageous! but what your saying is I should go get a job while my husband is working 2 so that my whole paycheck goes to the cost of daycare, and still need help to pay for formula because Im paying for Daycare and missing out on teaching and being with my kids! UM yeah let me pay for someone else to raise my kids so I can pay them and still need help! OK you make a lot of sense! Most you women must have been raised on a silver spoon or have such a perfect life! Good for you! Your blessed! Im an educated women that paid my way through school, working my butt off! My husband worked his whole life and went to school! We came down on hard time after the birth of our second daughter, and because of that we asked for assistance so we need to be bashed and looked down on even though my husband is working, and I take care of my kids at home instead of wasting the amount of money these daycare's charge? um no! It is what it is there for! I cant breastfeed so... Whatever to y'all Karma comes around and I hope u choose to be helped then letting your baby starve because of your idiotic pride and judgmental attitude!

Ahh you are a lost cause and you are full of your self.... 6 digits huh I don't believe that for one second... Piece of work







Quoting SommelierMom:

Hyperbole is stupid. I never said I'm perfect.









I'm not deluded. I'm in contact with my former employer often, as we're often at the same events. I could say the word today and start tomorrow. I have a rare skill set for my area.









I wouldn't be concerned when his life insurance would kick in, as our savings and investments are into the 6 digits- well into the 6 digits.









I won't apologize for being financially responsible. More people should be.










Quoting CelticMamabc:

Well it's another moment to for the I am perfect I have everything mom to strike again... I made my point and I said my piece if you really think you could just waltz back into any job this day in age and get you old job back than you're deluded. I hope you and yours never need asstiance, because I can't even fathom what your idea of an emergency is. I have seen hard times when I was single and putting myself through my masters I am glad that right now all is well for my family and I too have life insurance.. How soon do you assume your husbsnds life insurance would kick in? Some take awhile but I have unfortunately had family members pass who I have has to arrange funerals... I can promise it's not as quickly as you think in some cases. Plus remember death tax and lump sum come out as well. Good luck in life











Quoting SommelierMom:

I wouldn't really have a reality check, actually, other than sadness. We have huge life insurance policies and I could walk into my old job tomorrow.













Assistance should be there for emergencies, not convenience. Too many people are getting something for nothing.














Quoting CelticMamabc:

I don't think it's excuses I think it's what they're life has given them to work with and the average wife doesn't have the same luxuries that you seem to have and that I have... It is you judging them it's in black and white. You currently do need your husband he is your help and if something happened tomorrow to your husband god forbid you would really have a reality check... I know I need my husband right now because I'm not working and I am raising my own children with out help from the government, however my father does come over and help once and awhile by watching the kids while I clean or get a nice long bath... Some others may need help from the government for whatever their reasons are. What is wic for or any other government help there for? It just boggles the mind where people get this idea that they don't get help from anyone... And when someone is honest about their current situation others jump all over them because they feel entitled to be nasty to an another fellow human being...it's sad















Quoting SommelierMom:

I'm a SAHM who needs no help. I left a lucrative career because my husband and I thought it would be best for our daughter. I don't depend on him; I could go back to work tomorrow if we wanted. I've been home for over 2 years and still get job offers surprisingly often.

















I donate time and money- I'm not cold-hearted. I simply dislike the myriad excuses people on benefits often use.


















Quoting CelticMamabc:

I would just like to point out using daycare or a sitter isn't raising children on your own. I think it's a bit amusing that so many bash people who get wic or food stamps but they then turn around and pay others to raise their children and guess what I am betting some of these people who know every thing and have every thing may just be using day care vouchers as well or they are getting child support... All still not raising you child on you're own... If you are lucky enough to be a SHAM who doesn't need any help from anyone that inclueds your own parents, grand parents, friends or neighbors to watch your kids or give you money then wow... But you are still depending on your husband to pay for you and your children..Everyone needs help in one form or another to raise their children. I remember my great grand mother always saying it takes a village to raise a child and if it's wic or daycare or your parents or friends or your own husband everyone need asstiance once and awhile... Oh and just for the record I am not on asstiance but I pay my taxes and gladly help others who need helping I am not cold hearted

 Wow, some of you will say whatever you can think of just to cut someone down. So being on WIC means you aren't raising children on your own? Really? Raising a child is caring for, loving, and guiding them. It has NOTHING to do with money. NOTHING. Now you could say someone on WIC is not fully supporting a child on their own. I'll buy that. A man can support his children financially while not being there to raise them. Raising and supporting are two different things!

Wic  is only supposed to help.. Not support 

it's not a career choice...only supposed to aid...
