i will lastly just say no one can change your life except for you and the best way to go is up and to the OP good on you for having the mindset that you have and to be working towards your "goal" i wish you all the best and you sound like a wonderful and determined mummy
Well,Really.....I find there is way to much judgement these days..
Its kinda like my thread the other night about me feeling like i need to explain to people the reasons behind my c.sections...I now read this thread thinking theres not much real difference..We are mothers judgeing other mothers!!!
For those that live in public houseing shouldnt have to feel they need to explain or justify why or how they got there...
And if you are a single mum,well then good for you for at least having a roof over your childrens head..To me thats important,lets think about the kids for a minute!
If i was in that postion,id probably apply for a house to....Its easy to judge when never personally been in a situation like alot of others out there...
Like i mentioned before,we struggle on one wage and a mortage..We all struggle at the moment with the price of everything!!
I also am happy to think that people in public houseing are actually being respectful of their place,as someone said before,there are people out there who just trash these houses and i think they are the ones who get up most our noses..As it is tax funded,i guess we foot the bill!!!
the bolded bit with how you are asking why we are talking about the look of them, well if you go back a bit further, you would do anything to get yourself out of them. to me, you are making it sound that living in them is crap as the houses are dodgy and so on. anyway, i am going to go and look at the private rentals and see how soon we could become home homeless as we arent deserving of our house.
I think things are getting very off topic here, the original question was whether you would 'never' give up public housing even if you were in a position to rent privately.
So all the discussion about not being able to get private rental etc is null and void, obviously if you are unable to get private rental due to low income, 6 million kids etc then you are clearly NOT in a position to rent privately.
Nobody on here has said that public housing should not be available for those that need it.
I'm not saying women (single and partnered) should never return to work. I'm simply explaining the very real barriers.
