How do I tell my daughter that she wont be getting anything for xmas,because I dont have the money? My paychecks are already gone. I just dont know how to tell her this. I dont want to see her sad and when her friends ask her what she got for xmas..she is gonna have to say nothing because mom didnt have any money. My heart is breaking.

It would be nice to make her a card or something special. Tell her u love her and cook her a nice dinner. The world has become too materialized is why kids r the way they are today.

I know how you feel. I'm only making it because I got the emerald advance from H&R Block. If you can afford losing that money from your taxes, try that out. If not, call the local churches, there are programs for families who need help with christmas. Just imagine, I have B-day and christmas in december.

Tell your kid the truth! Tell her that You really do not care enough about her to plan for Xmas!
Xmas comes every Dec. Don't tell me that in the 52 weeks since the last Xmas that you could not have managed a few gifts. At the very least from yard sells or thrift shops.
If you can't manage on one income then get another job.
I think you are a whiner looking for a hand out!
Is that

I know a guy that lives in camp Conley that wants to help a kid out for Xmas he's on the boat right now and couldn't go to the radio station to get a snow buddy leaf but he wants to help a child out. I can't put his name on here but you could ask around out there or maybe you may know someone who knows him.

Tell her what the real meaning of CHRISTmas is....it's not about santa claus and presents, it's about the birth of Jesus Christ. I'm sure if you explain the real "reason for the season" to her, that would be more precious to her than any present she could ever have. And like the other person said, make something and give to your child...that too would be worth more than anything money could buy!!

To upset. I don't want to set here and say your on drugs but women who do drugs never think about their kids they spend what ever money they get their hands on for drugs and sell their food stamps and when Christmas comes around their to messed up to even go to fire station or to a church or somewhere to sign up for their kids toys for Christmas. I know they always put the children last always their drugs first. Anyway the child shouldn't be left out of Christmas because of their parents so please go to a church or somewhere that will help for christmas

I might know who this girl is ! If it's the same girl then your right she is on drugs and spends all her money to party on and she only has one child but she only has that kid for a few hours a week the rest of the time the kid stays with her grandma or great grandma while the mother sleeps with an old man for money to party on or some other guy for her pills so get off the drugs and worry bout your kid and stop sleeping around

Omg that is the most rude comment I have seen in a very long time! Have a heart! You do know that some people just make enough to get by or something major happens that requires them to deplete their savings for it...who knows whatever the situation is that gives you no right to judge! Just remember this, you never know maybe that shoe will be on your foot someday! Have a little compassion! To whoever started this post find a way to give me a P.o. Box to where you can receive something... I would like to send you something for your little girl.

How old is your daughter? What is she wanting for Christmas? How can anyone that wants to help get stuff to you? What size clothes does she wear?
