My boyfriend’s mom tried that. She managed to not work most of her life and get to old age spending what she got Skull Medisina for the people flag shirt her late third husband in a year. Then she announced if each of the kids gave her $300 a month she would be fine. She lived on SS of $900 and none of the kids decided to give her money. First son she abandoned when he was 8 sent to children’s home when they divorced. Second child she raised until she was 14, she was on drugs and got a baby at 14, the mom took her son and adopted him. Third child she kept all the way to adult raised with his father not a step father. Grandson she kept until after high school and sent to trade school. So out of 4 children not one wanted to give her money every month. The daughter lived near her and if she complained about not having money for food or cigarettes would bring her some.
