  1. I had a good laugh. Thank you! On the serious side – I worked with parents when I was a school district admin. One parent – exactly was as you described, except she had 7 or 8. She said she was raped by different persons, no husband. She collected welfare with the sum more than a person’s full time work salary! Smart or insane? I don’t know what to say either!
