More press came out about how involved the Feds and other agencies are trying hard to collect unpaid child support. There are so many parents who do not pay, and this should not be an issue, because if parents cared, and took responsibility for their children, we would live in a perfect world.
Guess what? We don’t.
Now, looking at the flip side, what if the parent who is suppose to pay just does not have the funds, maybe due to job loss, or income has been decreased, or they could be ill, or a number of justified reasons why they are not taking care of their obligation. How do we handle that? It is tough to look at both sides but it is a must.
Here is another thought, what about all those grandparents, aunts, uncles, siblings and friends who are caring for other people’s children, and never receive any help financially? How do they get compensated for all they do to help someone in need, or who has just surrendered their care to others?
This is very disturbing when you think about it.
Most people in their Retirement years, have already raised their families, and now here they are having to raise their children’s children.
What is our world coming too?
I really do not understand some of these situations, due to the fact if someone does not want children there are so many ways to prevent that, and in today’s world, no excuse for anyone to bare a child if they do not want one, unless it is under tragic circumstances like rape. So the real question is, if you do have a child, then why would you not want to take care of it?
Financial distress? Illness? What?
I would like to hear more about this subject and get a few more opinions.
