    No increase in FTB, CCB/CCR capped at 2 children? Is that what you mean?

    I think that the child care should go to more children since they need child care to be employed

    I do not support income control, I do not support control over the amount of kids someone has.
    i agree, if there is to be any income control it must be for all welfare payments

    What do you mean? Do you mean families with more children should get childcare? Sorry, I don't get you...

    I dont think that if they ever stopped giving aid to those for more kids that the child care should be cut it should cover all the kids

    why should one form of benefits (ccr/ccb) be exempt from limits?
    besides if you cant afford childcare then you shouldnt have that many kids, right?

    Exactly. Why should my tax money () go to other peoples' childcare fees?

    Ive had moments where I wish there was a loop hole in human right to sterilized certain people. Namely my previous neighbour who after having her kids taken off her by DOCS & put in their fathers care would loudly and often complain about not getting parenting payments & FTB and said she will just have to get pregnant again to remedy the situation.

    But.... I cant think of an ethical or practical way to prevent people like her having more children.

    Also what happens if someone has 6 kids, both on decent wages, can more than afford the kids without childcare, ftb, any supplements, etc, then one is injured and laid off and the other is forced to cut back to part-time. How do they continue to raise 6 kids if payments are capped at 3? Child support is already capped at 3 which I never understood either.

    In the the US it's capped at the number of children you start on aid with and you don't get extra for more kids unless you are off for 12 months prior to the other child being born. Unless they are conceived while on depo, by rape or incest. That could be an option
