Should I ask my ex to help with daycare?

I’ve recently put my 2 children in daycare. My kids dad has them every other Thursday and Friday and he will be sending them to daycare as well while he’s at work. My question is should he pay for those 2 days, or is it not even worth fighting over? He hasn’t offered to pay and it won’t be a lot of help but it would be some help. I just didn’t know if it would be worth fighting over. Anonymous Community MemberThis question was asked by a Facebook community member who has asked to remain anonymous.

Single moms, how do you manage your work life and being a mom?

How do you single moms work and afford to pay for everything plus daycare? I’ve been living on government assistance and child support since becoming a single mother, and I’m so ready to start working again. I’ve been offered a decent job but not sure how I’m going to afford childcare. I’ve applied for child care assistance but not sure how much that actually helps out. I’m feeling defeated and like working wouldn’t even be worth it. Also, please add that I’m afraid of losing my Medicaid for my kids, so then insurance would be another added expense.
