Well to begin with i apologize if i misspell anything or if i give you guys a hard time understanding me. This is my first time ever posting anything personal in the web and first time getting advice through a website..
Well about to years ago when i was 15 years old (pretty young) and i fell in love with my now boyfriend who had just turned 18 ..i got pregnant a month after dating him since we were never responsible and took care of ourselves. Well When i told him i was pregnant he was the happiest man on earth he was just excited and he went to talk to my parents about it. My parents of course were mad so they asked him if he was gonna be responsible for me and the baby and he said yes of course. I was happy as well because to be honest we both knew what we were doing when we were having intercourse and he always to me he wanted something serious and ge wanted a family ( he grew up without his dad) so he wanted a family. I agreed , even knowing i was so young, but i knew he was a good man, he has been working all his life in mexico when he came to the usa (age 14) he used to go help his mother work and everything so he has always worked hard for what he wants. When we were dating he told me that if we where to go live together that i was going to work to help him out with everything and the baby and i agreed, but now that o have my baby which she is 17 months i font want to work he tells me that its because im lazy but i dont want to leave the baby...what do you guys suggest me i havent finished high school because i dropped out when i got pregnant and i got behind so i havent went back for the same reason that i dont want to work please help me ..he is a great man and i think he is right about wanting me to work i dont want him to get tired of me because he feels like im not helping him out ...

Would you be able to complete any online GED courses that you could do at home while still with your baby? That could help with getting your diploma.
In he meantime, what if you tried applying to some daycares that you'd be able to bring your child too as well, so you'd be able to work while still being with your little one? I'm not sure what the requirements are for working at a daycare, but I'd assume there'd be a position you'd qualify for without a diploma, maybe an aid or something?
If that doesn't work, would you consider working just part time, so you wouldn't have to be away from the baby as often?
Keep your head up girl. You got this. And although it seems hard to go back to work and leave your baby, once you get into the swing of it, it actually is nice to not only have adult interaction but feel the pride of contributing monetarily to the family.
