Being a parent is hard. It doesn't matter if you planned for ever to have kids or unexpectedly you were told you were going to be a parent. If you wait to have kids until you are ready you will never be ready. We all know that.

So all the planning tends to go out the window. You do the best you can. Heck, with the cost of everything from groceries to essentials going up, it is tough. It seems the only thing not getting a boost is your pay. When was the last time you got a raise at work? OK, when was the last time the price of gas or rent went up.

It just doesn't seem to line up with the way life should work. So when you need help you ask for it. You go out and get it. You may not know where to turn. There is help out there.
