So I heard on the radio (probably S. O. S.) that there are three things that you can do to reduce your chances of being on Welfare.
1. Graduate High School
2. Have a job.
3. Wait to have children until after you are married.
We were discussing this at dinner this past week and my oldest said "Welfare, isn't that what is good for you?" WOW I thought, I knew what Welfare was at 12 years old and my son doesn't. Am I too protective? Have I sheltered him too much? NO WAY!! Although we were not on Welfare growing up times were tough and we knew people that were. He knows now. Hopefully he can keep his innocence a little longer.
