Welfare will pay you to be a stay at home mom

This is what the welfare website site said

A single parent with a child younger than 12 months does not have to find or start a job until the child is 1 year old, unless they choose to. However, each month the person does not work during pregnancy or during the child's first year counts against the five-year (60 months) time limit. Link

I really wish maternity pay was the same. I only got 10 weeks of paid maternity leave. 6 weeks maternity and 4 weeks family leave. That's just not enough. Can you imagine how much higher the breast feeding rates would be if woman didn't have to go back to work right away?

I've heard! Isn't it like Sweden or Denmark or something has the longest maternity leave?

Don't you have to be poor to get welfare, as well?

I understand your sentiment; but could you imagine how much higher the BIRTH rate would be? Lol. Women could just have children back to back without really worrying about finances.


I am a home educating, Vaccinating, Non spanking, Nightmare Cuddling, Dessert Giving, Homework Helping, Bedtime Kissing, Book Reading, Academic pushing Mother. I believe in the benefit of organized after school activities. I believe in spoiling my children. I believe that I have seen the village and I do not want it raising my child. I believe that a woman's place is in the home taking care of her house, children and husband. My husband is head of my home.             Aimee

Did you know back when I was a kid it was 5 years! You could stay at home on welfare till your youngest started school. So you know what some women did right?
