I am a horrible mother

I'm a single mom and lost my job a few months ago, so I started a daycare in my house by it's not been enough to pay all the bills, so I've been putting all my money into paying past due rent and any extra into the electric, but then my phone was shut off so I had to pay that, then I had to repair my car, our cat got sick, but it is so nice out and I was sick of all the money going to bills and wanted to treat my kids to a fun day, so we went to the zoo last week instead of paying our bills...now we have no power, our food will be spoiled by the end of the day, my daughters asthma is actin up because of the heat...and it's all my fault for not being able to provide for them right now...plus my pride because I could apply for assistance but I am too stubborn. :(

  • First, stop beating yourself up. I have a sister and a brother. When we were growing up money was tight, and bills sometimes didn't get paid. At one time we were even homeless. Like you my mom had it rough providing for us, but every chance she got she would take us someplace fun. When we talk about our childhood it's the fun times we remember. Fun time with your kids is good for both YOU and THEM. You also need to stop being stubborn and APPLY FOR ASSISTANCE!

  • No you are not.......Say it and believe it. You have to apply for it if not for you but your children. As messed up as your life may seem trust me it could be worst. It is there to help you get on your feet. Your children need to feel like it's nothing to worry about because childhood is the most important time in a child's like. It molds who you are.

    God bless
