FIRST and foremost, let me start by saying, a parent that neglects his or her responsibilities as a PARENT, to include the financial aspect among other things, IS NO MAN or WOMAN AT ALL!!!
Now that the disclaimer is out-of-the-way 🙂 This blog is not to talk about the deadbeat parents only, we see, and hear quite a bit about them as it is already. Today however, I would like to be an advocate for those Parents trying to the best of their ability to take care of their responsibilities. I want to highlight the “fact” that Child Support in America, has no accountability, and is by far, one of the most LUCRATIVE HUSTLES the federal government have ever allowed.
“What rimpology!!! You can “hustle” the federal government??” ABSOLUTELY you can!
I’m talking about the Parents who take their children’s child support checks and spend them on nothing but their own selfish VANITY! Am I the only one who thinks this is an injustice?
There has to be some form of accountability for those parents (mostly Fathers) giving half of their paychecks for the welfare of their children! Here is a suggestion from rimpology101 that will solve the entire issue:
1. Have the receiving parent submit receipts for all money spent on the child’s welfare, and submit those receipts monthly to the proper authorities! Whatever the amount that is unaccounted for, it will be deducted from the next monthly child support payment. That’s fair right??
To those mothers walking around with new Coach purses, and new hair styles, with french manicured hands and toe nails, or to those fathers wearing $150.00 Air Jordan’s, or riding around in rims that they are renting all on the expense of the Child Support check, turning in receipts would all but eliminate any misuse of the system.
Now I know that every parent that receives child support does not abuse the system. It may be that a few bad apples have spoiled the bunch, either way, accountability needs to take place. My question is what does new Jordans, or the latest weave have to do with the welfare of the child! Please answer that question if you can…
At first glance, you would probably think that I’m a victim of this injustice 🙂 Although I am not personally, i think we all are affected indirectly. What are we teaching the children that are watching our dishonesty, and lack of integrity? I am linked either through family or by friendship to many that are either the parent receiving or the parent paying. I’ve seen the system used properly, and I’ve witnessed the system being abused. The only losers in the whole equation are the children for whom the support was granted in the first place!
I want to hear from YOU!! Is it another federal program that Americans have turned into a “HUSTLE”? It’s rimpology101, doing what we do best,, “Thinking out LOUD”… Appreciate your feedback, lets talk about this one!!
