Boy who became father at 13 raises ‘worrying’ questions. NOT TO WORRY. TAXPAYER WILL COVER THE COST

He’s a daddy at age 13, asks “what’s financially?” and some adult is saying ....

We hope they will be good parents, but parenthood is not what they should have been thinking about.”

and she’s 15. Oh right. Great parents.  He comes from a family of 9 and she almost as many.
They live in “COUNCIL HOUSING” friends.  Council housing.  Has a ring to it huh?  For Americans who may not know, but I suspect you do know, “council housing” is the same as our “low income” housing.  As in no income except welfare income.  And mommies and some daddies here get PAID SO MUCH FOR EACH KIDDIE!
And I suspect again that soon as these kiddies are no longer kiddies but late teens, well ,, I remember an old movie called Cheaper By the Dozen.
Except for the taxpayer.

Hey that’s almost funny when you think about it. 

There are working parents who CAN NOT AFFORD more then one or two children at most.  But ... you see this one coming right?

They’re supporting thousands (I don’t really know the exact figure) of welfare families with multiple kids and more on the way.

OH BTW .... I ALMOST FORGOT.  THIS ISN’T EXACTLY THE END OF THIS STORY.
HERE’S THE FUN PART.


Teenage sister of boy who became a father at 13 had baby when she was the same age

Family can claim £30,000 benefts

Chantelle Stedman can claim no benefits until she reaches 16, her next birthday.

But state benefits to support her and her baby will be paid to her mother Penny until then.

At a minimum, the family can expect to receive around £30,000 a year - close to £600 a week.

Penny, 38, will claim benefits to support herself and her four children including Chantelle.

She will also claim on behalf of new-born Maisie.

The family may claim benefits on the basis that Penny’s unemployed partner Steve is a live-in member of the household.

If so, their claims may look like this:

* Child Benefit: Paid automatically for each child - £72.80 a week.
* Council Tax Benefit: Likely to cover the full bill - £30 a week.
* Child Tax Credit: Now the main payment to support children of out-of-work or low income mothers. Possible payment for the five Stedman children - £221 a week.
* Income Support: If paid to Penny and Steve as a live-in couple - £94.95 a week.
* Housing Benefit: Likely to cover the full rent of their council house, together with any service charges. This may be - £150 a week.
* Total: £568.75 a week, or £29,575 a year.


A schoolboy who became a father at the age of 13 has raised disturbing questions about society, leading politicians said yesterday.

But police and social services said no one would be prosecuted over the case of Alfie Patten whose 15-year-old girlfriend Chantelle Stedman gave birth to a daughter earlier this week.

Pro-life campaigners praised the two children as courageous for deciding to go ahead with the pregnancy but the Conservative leader David Cameron said the case raised “worrying” questions about modern Britain

Alfie, who is just over 4ft tall and looks younger even than his 13 years, was only 12 years old when he got Chantelle - who was then 14 - pregnant.

The schoolboy from Hailsham, East Sussex, was allowed to stay over at Chantelle’s house after originally meeting through their mothers. He was often seen emerging in the morning in his school uniform.

Neighbours claimed that Chantelle’s mother Penny, 38, had been Alfie’s babysitter and cared for him at weekends to give his mother a break.


But the two young people soon became “inseparable” and were, it was claimed, allowed to sleep in the same bed.

They discovered Chantelle was pregnant when she visited a GP complaining of stomach pains but initially tried to keep it a secret even from their parents.

Mrs Stedman soon became suspicious after noticing her daughter putting on weight.

The young couple decided against having an abortion and Chantelle gave birth to their daughter, Maisie Roxanne, at Eastbourne District General Hospital earlier this week.


Despite his age, Alfie - who is himself one of nine children - has spoken of his intention to care for the child.

Asked in an interview for The Sun newspaper what he would do financially, he replied: “What’s financially?”

He told the paper: “I didn’t think about how we would afford it. I don’t really get pocket money, my dad sometimes gives me £10.”

The couple claimed that they slept together only once when Chantelle, who lives with her five brothers and sisters in a council house in Eastbourne, became pregnant but friends said that Alfie regularly slept at her house.

Neighbours said that until Chantelle became pregnant, the Stedman home was a popular local hangout with people calling in to smoke cannabis. Others said there had been fights with neighbours.

“Before she got pregnant there were people going in and out every day but as soon as she got pregnant she was just in there all the time,” said one.

“We hope they will be good parents, but parenthood is not what they should have been thinking about.”

HERE FOR THE REST OF THE STORY

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
