If you are a SAHM and you are getting PA, how do you justify it? How is it okay with you that you rely in the government to care for your kids?

Honestly, I don't care what other people do.  Their business.  I worry about my own.

Why do you care? Plus the answer is always the same. They cannot get a job that pays more than daycare. How many times do we need this discussion?

I don't think there is anyway to justify it. I think it's wrong to be physically and mentally able to work but to be home and rely on government aid anyway...

No one ever like that opinion though lol

Daycare costs more than a minimum wage job pays for people with small children. It isn't rocket science.

oh because they are entitled to stay home .  They say it is better for the kids. They say they can't afford daycare but the truth is, if they need PA to stay home, they cannot afford their kids.  They don't like to hear that though.  The truth hurts.   The first time I heard about people having the nerve to do this, I was shocked.  I was brought up with a better work ethic though.
