No Janine you poor deluded muppet, I am NOT John Lowe.
And neither, thankfully, are you.

Parent-blaming is all-too-common these days, and usually the point is to make other parents feel better about their own parenting skills

If a homeless person stopped me and asked me for food, I'd happily buy them meal. I don't like giving money though because I worry that it will be used for drugs or booze.

Impossible to give EVERYBODY who begs here something EVERY time, you'd be running out of money before you got to the shop or you'd be running out of food before you could get your shopping home. It's absolutely tragic, and it's not only the usual suspects these days, it's ordinary families, mums & dads with no other way out. There is always someone collecting for the food banks outside the shops now, they normally tell you what they're desperately short of before you go in, last time it was " any type of fruit for the children".

The only person to offer food was the person who was himself without. Just goes to show what a lovely person he was inside, which really counts the most in the end doesn't it, no matter how wealthy you are if you are a rotten person inside then you might as well be a nobody.

I think out of everything hunger to me is the worse, when I see babies on the tv crying for food it breaks my heart.

Yes I would rather buy someone food and drink than give them money as the people who work with the homeless say some will buy drink or drugs with the money, if they are warm and fed it goes a long way.

Very true Mobyra, in this day and age you wouldn't think there would be families who couldn't buy food for themselves and family.

I heard of a case where a mother collapsed as she had not been eating herself and just feeding her children. What is going on!!

I give regularly to the food banks, but it shouldn't be necessary should it? Recently they have been short of shampoo, shower gel toilet rolls etc. seems they get a lot of tin stuff.
