I don't understand this either. I lived with my folks when I got pregnant, and when I found out I got multiple jobs, as did my bf (now husband) and we moved in together to raise our child. It is the parents responsibility not the grandparents. Get a job!

Go to HRA and get assistance to get some child care while you go out and look for work. Go! Now!
Seriously, you have to go make something happen.

I agree with the other mothers.Its very nice of your mom to support you,but its your daughter and you are old enough to work..so i would suggest you find a job.You need to be able to support yourself and your daughter,i dont know how the financials work in your country but can you go get money from the state till you get a job?We get children money monthly from the goverment here,its not alot but i mean atleast its something, and every parent gets it no matter what job or income.Do you get something like that where you live?But dont just live off the goverment,try find a job as soon as possible.Good luck...and where there is a will there is a way!

If you are old enough to have a child and decide to keep said child, you are old enough to get a job. Your daughter is 3. Why are you not doing something to help support her??? Get a job. File for child support. if he is working "under the table" have it investigated. You have no right to send your mother broke!

Why are you not supporting your child?

Where is your child's father? Why is he not contributing?

Are you in school? If not, do you have a job? If not, why not?

Deal is: You have a kid to raise, you have a responsibility to yourself and that child to do it to the best of your ability. Living off of your mother isn't cutting it.

You need to go find a job then and help your mother out. Letting her pay for it all is wrong. And if she is doing it of her own free will she is enabling you. You need to look for those supports and resources in your area. You need to think a bit not just sit there and ask for pity when you are not doing anything on your own and you can file for child support and if he does not pay it you can get him for it.

What do you mean?

What is best for your child is that you learn how to care for her. If you need parenting courses, check in your area. If you need financial support, apply for aid.

If you "can't afford" to take care of your kid, how do you have internet, and presumably a cell phone?

I am solely relying on my Mother for financial support. I am using her computer and internet. Also, to answer you, correct in that I have no monies or support from the Father and no transportation other than my Mother and no job. All money he makes is under the table and he keeps all of it. Do you have any suggestions?

What do you mean you have no way to care for her? No money? No child support? What? And if its money how do you afford to use internet?
