I currently live with my parents and my 3 children I do not receive child support but even when I do petition for it I wont be able to support my family in very stressed and at the end of my rope my kids are the only thing that keeps me from giving up completely I've looked into cheap living ideas like buy a peice of land and put a trailer on it I sold my car last Christmas because I needed money for Christmas and the bills . My parents are very manipulating and want what they want and it took me forever to see the truth until she left my kids stranded at the bus stop until i could get someone to pick them up. I was scared out of my mind. Luckly god willing nothing happened and my mother says that its my fault which i gave her my work schedule and its the same every wensday she just overslept and my children especially my sons feelings are hurt i have even noticed my kids lashing out lately i need to get out i won't be able to afford child care so I'm probably going to have to go to a shelter. I'm a US Veteran as well and i haven't been able to get much help I'm told if i was on drugs an alcoholic or unemployed i can get help which i am none of these things

My children are in school but I work in fast food so I work nights to I'm a shift manager and I have to be flexible with my hours the problem is my kids go to a school in the town I used to live its 15 minutes away from the home I'm in but even if I was to transfer their schools I doubt someone could watch them my mom doesn't care and my step dad keeps telling me where the door is but they want me to pay all the bills so I can't get ahead I would love the info for the jobs on the internet and appreciate it. My oldest is only 10 so she can't even watch her siblings yet I had a plan but with what has happened I have to take a different path because now I'm out of time at least emotionally I still have a roof for now

Oh, man! Big hugs to you!
It's shameful the way America treats her veterans. I'm sorry that you're in such a bad situation.
I think you need a plan. What are your career goals? Why do you want to be in one year, in five years?
How old are your children? Hopefully soon they will be in school. If you have an Internet connection, there are ways to make a little bit on money online. I can tell you a few legitimate websites, if your interested.
What are your interests?the time is now! Sometimes it just take a mental shift. You can fight your way out of this, don't give up.
