I understand it is a must
It is a duty, not a cost,
however I believe we should
keep better watch on how its used.
The mother buys a brand new phone,
the child neglected back at home,
there is no money for new books
but there is enough for mom's new shoes!
I wish that parents would resort,
to fill themselves with knowledge
while you are wasting child support
the child has nothing saved for college.
** This is a tricky subject. I understand that many mothers manage the money in a very smart manner for the wellbeing of her child and his or her environment. However what catches my attention working in a call center, is the women that call in saying they have no job, asking for an extention on a phone bill over $250.00 ($50 of which is downloads), they just bought a new blackberry and they say very proudly: "Um...I need an extention for another 3-4 weeks because that is when I get my child support money"...Wow...that bothered me because being a woman and having lived the step family experience I find that CHILD support is just that; not extra money so mom or dad in some cases can buy a new phone or run up the cable bill. I don't mean to offend anyone, it is just a reflection of how I feel everytime I have to hear a comment like that and it happens about once or twice a week
