You need to get some experience in the field you want even if you have to do it for free. The economy has sucked since 2008 in a way that I've never seen in my lifetime.
Dunno. Sounds hard. Hope that you find a way forward to better times.
Can you go back to school and get a career ? Why does your kid break everything ? just curious...
I am sorry to hear that. I really hope things get better for you and your kid.
