Yesterday on Facebook a pie chart along with a rant caused a bit or a stir. Nothing new there really, what with Thatcher passing away and bedroom tax and all the other cuts starting to take affect, there is a lot of slanging matches going on there. This pie chart caught my eye and I got in contact with poster.
As a parent I am use to most things being my fault. If it rains, according to my teen, its my fault. If they miss their tv programme , again its my fault. If tea is ‘awful’ its my fault, ok maybe that one is, but you get the jist of it. As well as all that most things in the economic climate, at some point, gets blamed on the single parents of the world. Its our fault the benefits system is in the state its in apparently.
Well for once someone, Jon, has stood up and said hang on these are the figures. So it seems single parents aren’t actually to blame for everything, just awful food in my case. I will add all charts below but a big thank you to Jon for having the guts to shout about it and for very kindly sent me the pie chart and a few other charts for me to put on confessions of a single mum. Do pop along and read his full rant, its here. And if you want to check his figures knock yourself out here
