BFP reblogged this on Barbados Free Press and commented:

"Government is shortly to ask Parliament for a supplementary, around $100 000, to ease the distress of mothers who trek daily to the courts for child maintenance only to be disappointed because a special account was overdrawn.

The move comes against the backdrop of angry cries by frustrated women earlier this month that some had not received the child support for September, while others claimed they had not received any payments since July. Some called for a return to the cash payment system instead of the current cheque mechanism."

Barbados makes single motherhood a viable career choice and then we wonder why we have so many young women, girls really, popping 'em out like Marcia does grill fish, peas & rice, and beer at Oistins.

Half the time it's a guess to name the father... make that fathers. Plural.

This free ride, this "guvment look after everyting" is coming to an end, as it must.

The cupboard is bare, and as BFP's Shona said back in 2006...

"Government child maintenance payments empowers young uneducated women to perpetuate further generations of young unwed mothers and young men who lack the steady hand of a father.

The current trend towards making unwed motherhood a societally sponsored career choice marginalizes the role of fathers and men in general – and can do no long-term good."
