Get family to help

If you have family around, make sure you use their help. I guess its too hard being a single mom nowadays. They can babysit for you while you go to school or work. The father needs to pay for child support and you can hunt them down nowadays. They're required to pay or pay up the fine. They should pay so don't let them get away with not
paying for child support.


Stay organize

You should stay organize so you can get ahead in life. It's hard enough being a single mom already so don't get behind with partying or doing drugs or dating men that will treat you bad. You should focus on saving money for your kids, go back to college and find a good job.
You should stay as organized as you can so you don't get behind even more.
You should get your priority straight. You can plan in a way where you can work, go back to school and raise your child at the same time.

Welfare

You can apply for welfare if you need financial assistance to take care of your child. There is welfare available if you need it. You can get monthly benefits for your child plus housing too if you need it. They also have childcare help too so you can go back to school.


Online college

If you want to spend time at home with your child, there are a lot of online schooling that you can go to nowadays to get an advance degree. You can get a two years AA degree or even four years and Masters even.



foster care

If you really need help badly, you can try foster care where you will be able to visit the child and get custody back later on when you can afford to. It's a good way to get things out of the way and get your life together and this is more so if you have a lot of problems like living situation and financial.
