Quoting ΊΧί‘±©΅ΧΊ:" yep i have biased eyes as a single mother because i get a small amount of child support because my ex and his smurf had three more kids "
What happens if he died... you wouldnt have the support at all. Or if he didnt pay... what would you do?
I do think that guys (and girls) should WANT to pay for their children, but if they arent involved I dont think they should pay. Better programs should be in place to help those parents get a job, get a GOOD job, get through school, get decent daycare, etc... without making the parent feel like they are barely surviving. I dont think it should be all about child support or you can't survive.
I am all about programs to help and raise the family up... get that Mom through school to get a job! But in the end, I am actually very against making a man or woman be involved in any way, even if its just monetarily, for a child they didnt want. That doesnt help the mom OR the child and can be extremely detrimental to the child. "Daddy/Mommy doesnt want to pay for me, doesn't want to see me, Mommy gets pissed off and yells... yup life sucks!"
It'd be better to have NO father there, and make it easier for parents to go to college to get a better job so the kid can say "We may not be rich, but Mommy is about to graduate where she can make a couple thousand more a month and we can live comfortably." College needs to be cheaper... child care needs to be cheaper... it CAN be done if people werent so greedy and didnt rely on making deadbeat parents that are not conducive to the child at all pay/be involved.
