    Do not buy into the stereotype of public housing tenants that you see on shows like Today Tonight.

    You couldn't pay me enough to live in government housing with the lack of maintenance, red tape, racism, arbitrary decision makers and general lack of tenant rights that many public housing tenants face on a daily basis.

    I'm sorry but I just don't follow. Most people with young children could not work 16 hour days if they want to have any sort of relationship with their kids (I know this because I have regularly worked 18 to 20 hour days in my job as a lawyer and never saw mine) yet you say you dropped 2 of those jobs so what was your income then? Did you have to pay child care as well? What are of work were you working in?

    I'm not being rude I'm just trying to understand how you did it all.

    WOW and home schooling on top of that. Super mum. How does your son cope, that must be really hard on him.

    wow... how did you manage 16 hours a day, then travelling between the 3 jobs and then looking after your husband and children including a young baby?? I thought it was illegal to work 16 hours a day! I am wondering with all that thrown in with working 16 hours a day how you would manage to get any sleep and find time to get on bubhub!

    No child care as my husband stats home with the kids. Retail and cleaning not very fancy jobs but it's something for now.

    LovemyFam I have a few questions..

    what is your appearance? are you pretty? are your teeth good?
    Did you have access to good clothes to attend the interviews?
    money for transport?
    access to a computer, printer, phone to call jobs?
    how is your level of education?
    do you have good references?
    can you read and write well?
    did you finish school?
    did you have access to a phone for employers to contact you?
    do you have a car?


    Just a few things as its such a broad statement, I found it so easy so everyone should.

    I think we have to lose the assumption that most people on welfare are cheats and / or bludgers. I did prosecutions for DSS (Commonwealth) for welfare fraud when I was a junior lawyer and by far the majority of people in this country on welfare (a) hate it and (b) are honest. It is not a glamorous way to live your life, flat screen tv or none
