    My mother came from a family of ten, no help in any way but two hard working parents. I asked her how it was, she said they had a good life, fun, work, and all. They never had a lot of money but what they had was used well and did not live beyond what they could afford. Today people want more. This article is one sided. Parents are ultimately responsible for their children. upbringing, giving the most they can give, teaching their children, respect, responsibility, and good work ethic. I'm a mother of three and work, and we live within our means , and do without what we cant afford (which means living in an area we can afford, buying only too) We have what we need but maybe not what we would want but that's life. Childcare can be expensive in certain areas so we downsize and adjust. Solutions for childcare can always be found, for me, I took a pay cut and stayed at home for a few years, working part time in offices, and some work at home.It worked. We had less money but we had less bills and the kids had their mother at the most important times they needed. That was my priority.
