It's really upsetting to me for all these moms to cry poor me like they can't do anything about it. It's pathetic.

Then move there and get a job. Maybe a change in attitude would benefit you and set a better example for your kid.

I watch you stupid people post on here about what is considered a good or bad mother. I'm sorry but im 21 with a 1yr old, i'm going to school, working, and his father (who im still with) is in the army. Which if you havent heard the pay in the army is HORRIBLE right now. SO YES, I use WIC and EBT. What kills me is when you guys seriously want to point out how bad we are and how we are living off the state.. News flash, your money is going to be taken wither you like it or not. NOTHING IS GOING TO CHANGE! My butt pays plenty of taxes. Sorry if im just getting my money back in that stuff. If my son is going to lose his father 3 months a year and then a whole year at a time. I think my family has paid enough in blood, sweat, and tears. Not just money. So while you judge people.... realize you dont know every little thing about these "TEEN MOMS"

No one is judging you in particular but I do it all on my own with one income an no assistance. If I absolutely needed it maybe I would but I chose to work extra hard in order to not use those things because I don't have to. Being broke and only being able to put a little out of each paycheck into savings is rough at times but somehow I manage to make it without anyone's help. So it just baffles me why people that walk around with nice clothes, an iPhone, a brand new car, and the list goes on and on. Why can they afford any of that, but yet they deserve wic, food stamps, and whatever other crap they are mooching. Believe me hunny, they take my taxes too. But I'd rather them use that money for someone with a mental disability or an illness they were born with that can't support themselves. Not you, who has a job, and a baby daddy that also has a job... You people that use and abuse the system won't understand my point ever. I KNOW I can get assistance. Probably for wic, food stamps, and daycare. But I'd rather keep my independence and keep setting a good example for my son as he grows older. There is no other way I would be, lazy is not for me. If I can make the money to afford all the actual essentials in life why would I have someone else pay for it, rather than using my hard earned dollar. I guess I get it from my parents though. They set that example for me and I didn't choose to grow up and be an adult until a kid was part of the picture.

Minimum wage is under $8.00 and hour, if your working 40 plus hours a week you will make around $350 a week. Multiply that by four and you get $1400 a month before taxes. Since you don't rely on any government help you must pay a pretty penny for your child's health insurance. Since you think receiving any help is against your nature that huge tax refund you get every year gets donated to the less fortunate. I mean if your not donating tat refund you are accepting government help and that would make you a bad mom. Your school loans should only cover your school expenses because any more would be accepting help and that would make you a bad mom. I'm sure you never have anyone watch your child because to do so would be accepting help and that would make you a bad mom. I mean you don't want your child thinking they are equal to these losers who get help that's offered them. I've gotten help from the government in my earlier years with my child and that doesn't make me a bad dad. I spend time with my child, I teach her right from wrong, I make sure she knows that she is loved, I put her needs and wants above my own. Being financially stable has nothing to do with whether your a good mom or dad. My dad was a broke ass who got help and never had much money but he was an amazing role model and dad. Get off your high horse opinion and try teaching your child that it's ok to ask for help when you need it.

If you get any kind of assistance for formula ,diapers ,food or anything like that I consider you a bad mother because you can't afford to have the child. If you rely on your mother or father or the father of the baby's parents to pay for all this you're also a bad mother.
So if they can't afford it, even if they are working full time and they get help to provide for thier child rather than letting starve or go without...they are bad parents????

Student loans are paid back. My tax refund is money I worked for and got taken from me, plenty of it. Not "help". I want my son to grow up and work hard for everything he has so he can have nice things. Not be lazy and get help. Like I said it is do-able. I do it month to month. And I am a good parent. Btw, he goes to daycare that I pay for so I can work in order to provide.$100 each check is taken out in order for us to be insured, not just once a month.

All this arguing back and forth....
Bottom line: Teenage girls...Get your head out of your azz, DON'T GET KNOCKED UP!!!!!! CLOSE THEM LEGS!!!!.You are only being "USED" for a piece. These boys don"t want to be "baby daddies" as this society of girls call them. As much birth control is out there, you get pregnant in todays time..IT IS ON PURPOSE!!!

You are an idiot. Birth control fails. I was on the nuva ring when I got pregnant.

Almost everyone who has posted on this is ridiculous.
To the women who doesn't ask for help : being independent is great. But so is knowing that sometimes you have to ask for help? What if you got fired tomorrow and were unable to find a job despite your efforts of trying to find one? Would you let him and yourself starve ? Or ask for help.
I myself recieved social security since I was 7 years old when my mother died. Is that wrong??

Whoever grumpy cat is is CLEARLY deranged and obviously stupid.

Being on assistance does NOT make you bad mother. How does wanting to take care of your child make you a bad mother? I have wic and food stamps and I am an amazing mother. I always take care of my son before myself. Everything I do is for him. He deserves the best and so I do my best to give it to him.

Really people should think a little bit more when they sit down and post something on this website.

I was a teen mom, I took every precaution and still ended up with a child. A child that I would give my very life for and that I love with all of my heart, 2 years later I had another child that again I would give my very life for. My kids are my world and I do everything that I can to take care of them with little help as possible. It's very hard to live paycheck to paycheck especially when I only get paid twice a month. I am a good mom and sacrifice anything and everything to give my kids the beat that I can provide and to me that makes me a good mom. However, I get help with insurance for my kids because private insurance is too expensive to pay every month, I get help with food because two growing kids eat a lot more than what I know I can afford out of pocket. Neither of those make me a bad parent, just one that knows how hard raising one let alone two kids is and that sometimes people need help. Everyone should stop complaining and be a little more compassionate towards each other. Think about people and the situations they could be in before you judge them on any aspect of their lives. One day that person could end up being your boss or you may be the one asking for help.
