    Hello.

    I’m new and not sure if this has ever been brought up.  I’m a single mum with two teenagers.  I’m also a full time post graduate student with SAAS paying a small component of my fees. I am on benefits bit when my eldest left for Uni the income from tax credits were rightly scraped.  Now she’s returning for the summer break and I’m struggling to think how I’ll afford to look after us all.  It’s a really horrible place and situation to be in.  What do you do?

    At that age she would be expected to financially support herself, hence student finance for living expenses.

    can she get a job for the summer and pay some board?
    i stayed at home during uni and worked weekends but when my student finance came in I paid board to my mom towards food etc and we split the bills.

    most uni students study and have a part-time job. think you should encourage them to look for work.
