Sure, i can expect to...
I could starve while expecting...
I dont have kids, i have grandkids tho. How cool is that? My mother was in it alone from the time i was 9. I was working at 15 and took care of my own needs. But......i take care of my mom. She did not ask. When she needs or wants something i provide it. But, if i had had children i would never ask for a thing. Nor would i expect anything.
Noooo... Something even I never thought of...
My kids would help out if we needed it.
A little help would be fine but leaning on your kids is not something I ever want to do.
Sadly...it might happen...as it happens to many ppl.
Didn't I just read that Michael Brown's "parents, ahem" are suing Ferguson for the lost wages he would earn to take care of them??? The ultimate demand
that we the taxpayers continue to pay for them.
Are they basing the number on what he would earned or what he would have stolen?
Not sure. While I can think my future kids will help me if I ever need it, I can't say if I'm going to expect it or not. It all depends on what kind of person they become or if they indeed love me and care for me. We'll see.
I think we're a team. If I need help; they'll give it. Hopefully, through retirement investments, I won't need any.
What I don't expect, is to be expected to pay for other kid's college as well.
If it wasn't for the government taking so much of what I make, and giving it away in the form of handouts for votes, I wouldn't be worried about my financial future.
Oh no I don't expect a thing back from my kids. I bought my first vehicle & I paid for my college. They will do the same. In fact from the time I was 15-21, I made the house payment, bought groceries, & helped pay utilities for my parents. One year I didn't work as long because I was recovering from an accident.
After I moved out I helped my parents when they couldn't afford their medication got them groceries if needed. I paid an ungodly amount of money to move my mama from Texas to Indiana in 2008 & never expected a dime in return.
Would I do it again, you can bet your bottom dollar I would. It was the least I could do for my parents because no matter what I did they never turned their back on me.
A Princess...not just in word but also in deed.
