Quoting TheNuge:" 100% agree. Here we have WIC. I have seen plenty of women here say they are on WIC but truly believe ... [snip!] ... are on WIC but truly believe they are self-sufficient. They seem to factor that help from strangers in their family planning."
Well then. lol
I have used our assistance before, for a short time. When my house income went from two incomes to me being a single mom, who could no longer afford daycare. I was gald to get off of it within 6 months time. lol
I could not imagine someones life goal, and even more so a parents life goal to have babies and live off of assistance. lol Its crazy.
Here assistance is a life choice for unfortunately most people, you can be on assistance for 40 years here or more lol. They will pay for your kids sports, (which I do like) for the fact that it gets kids off their lazy bums, if the parents truely need the help. But like everywhere most abuse the system for many years.
I would love to have a 4th baby (hopefully a boy) but its not in my budget as a single mom of 3, lol (need a parenter first but whatever) lol I think it would be selfish of me to take away from my other kids to add an extra person on our budget, and have to IDK take away their sports ot Girl guides and brownies, cause I had another kid. lol
