I'm talking about finances here. How do you make ends meet if you haven't gone to college and don't have a good paying career/job? How did you keep up with bills when your baby was born, assuming your job didn't give you paid time off? I don't have friends or family to help me, and me and the father aren't together anymore. I know he'll have to pay child support, but he makes minimum wage and only works 30 hours a week, so I don't think he'd be required to help out too much. I'm not afraid of being a mom, I'm just afraid of not being able to make ends meet.. I'd like to hear from anyone, but mostly single young moms who don't have family to rely on.
