I was just in a thread that turned into people sayiing that anyone who gets child support is not a single mom. I am confused. I busted my ass for years to provide for my family-with no help at all-not even emotionally-for my kids. I am being told that child support is no different then PA. Therefore, I was basically ON PA.
Ummmm.....so those who actually had kids with someone who had a decent job, and divorced, and that dad is not a deadbeat (because the state takes his money right from him each week whether he likes it or not), the single mom busts her ass to provide the rest for however many kids she has....doesn't deserve to be called a single mom???? seriously???
Apparently child support is considered "help" here????? Not where I come from, it's called responsibility.I would have never had kids with someone who could not, would not take care of them. He's an ass, but he pays support. It's a law. It's not a hand out. That is insane.
Happy "Father's Day" to all of you, regardless of how you make ends meet. I know not all of us are fortunate enough to get the child support thing figured out, for whatever reason....I wish you all well-we are raising this generation, and I am TIRED of people not giving us any credit!
