Today in my reading I read about how LaVaughn took Jolly to a steam class. It's called "steam class" because it is for people to find a way to blow of steam. In the end this all helps build up their self esteem. Jolly was afraid to go at first because she is a teenager with 2 kids and thought that the day care would be unasanitary, causing her kids to become sick. See Jolly recently lost her good paying job and is having trouble findin a new job. She is unable to pay her babysitter, LaVaughn for her work because she isnt having any income ! However, out of the goodness of her heart, LaVaughn decides to continue looking after Jilly and Jeremy for free. Her mother doesn't like that she's not getting paid because that money was supposed to help pay for college. I stopped reading where LaVaughn asks Jolly if she could get any assistance from the kid's fathers who are not around anymore.
