Truth. A little sexing and I'm able to wiggle out of some of the shit I didn't want to do. Namely clean the bathrooms.

I honestly have no idea how much she makes. Not really something we discuss.

It isnt the governments problem. It should be up to the parent to wait to have children until they are able to support them and stay home with them if that is what they choose.



The problem with america is the majority of people who feel like they are owed so much from the government.

Wawawawawait. So you're telling me.. that there is still time out of the day apart from working, sleeping, eating and shitting to spend with my family??

I thought I was covered though.. you know, what with spending the tender years home with my kids. Apparently those few first years were all that was needed to instill a lifetime's worth of morals and convictions in them. Past age 5 and they don't need any more raising. This is what I was told.

Do nurses get paid minimum wage there? Because I do not understand how she would qualify for government assistance on a nurses salary.

My parents both typically worked full time. I didn't get my current set of morals/values from them but I did have the usual Christian values taught to me as a child.

Well I never looked it up. All I know I she is taking her kids to where my daughters went briefly. She has been employed at providence for two years and you know what,
Why am I even discussing this?
Making a point based on BS is not helpful at all. If you are questioning whether I'm doing this, chances are this is how you prove your points.
I don't believe everything I read. But when a person tells me their personal experience, I generally don't see the value in arguing that. So question her situation, but it doesn't change things

I just do not understand why people continuously have children that they cannot afford.

Me neither. Especially the parents who don't take care of their kids. Not a snide remark. I'm talking about really crappy parents who seem to not understand what causes pregnancy. The welfare moms you hear about who keep popping them out and having their kids taken away.

wow that's a load of bullshit. Your country is YEARS away from being able to afford something like a maternity leave policy, you need as many citizens working as much as possible to start paying taxes.



Here we get 18 years paid at min wage OR $5000 - $3000 cash for each child. We also get a pro-rata'd amount of daycare benefit depending on how much we earn. We afford this by paying taxes that in America would have everyone rioting in the streets (I pay 32c in the $1).



However we also have all our benefits (except disablity) stopped when our youngest child hits school age. You either work or you get nothing, women in this country are EXPECTED to work when their kids are in school no ifs or buts.
