I've been homeless for over 3 years, almost 4. We recently received housing, with my mom who is on disability. So we will all be living under the same house, no problem I can live with that. But she doesn't want me to work because our housing rent will go up, I don't want to work a lot of hours 15 at most. She just wants me to go to school. I would like to do both. Problem is if I work our rent will go up by $30 -$100. I honestly don't have an issue paying for that portion of the rent if she's that worried. But when I bring it up she freaks out. I will be going to school for fashion design but that could take two to three years for me to finish even when I'm not working. How would you handle it? I want money that isn't coming from TANF, I want to feel like I earned ever dollar. I really like working too. And I have gone to school and worked,just not while being a mother.
