Im on welfare because times are rough. Its none of your business what happened so dont start bashing. I am single and have no family or friends. I am planning on staying on welfare until my dd starts kindergarden in school. I was raped as a child and my dd was put in daycare when she was a couple of months old and one day i arrived and (not joking) this lady working there was yelling at my 6 month old and threw her in the playpen(not throw but she was rough)She was 6 months old! Imagine if one day she would of beat her because she couldnt control her anger. Anyways i took her out and because of my past and what happened i never want to put her in daycare again. I think as a mother ts my job to protect her. Thats my number one priority. Where i live there are alot of stories in the news as well about kids getting beat, raped, not fed well and having dirty daycares. I just cant do it. If i need to stay home until she starts school i will. Then i will go work for sure until i die. Shes now 1 1/2 and i still am scared to do so. She is the only thing i have in this world and i will not risk anything happening to her. Its my job to do what is best for her. I never understood moms on welfare being sahms but when your in their shoes and it happens to you , you understand.
