am I being a bad mother. I had to get a second job both full time. should I let go of some expenses so I do not neglect my daughter? Or will the hard work pay off in the end to give her a better life? please help what do I do??

It depends what expenses your talking about. I would cut out cable and other non necessities before I picked up a second job, although I've thought about a part time one. I can't tell you whe last time I treated myself to getting my nails done or my hair done, I'm the sole provider for my kids and those are expenses that I just can't afford. If you have the opportunity to advance in one of your positions I would focus on doing that really well so you can provide a better life. If you can't cut out enough expenses to not work full time just be sure you are spending quality time with your daughter.
