I think it's great. We have a society that will allow mother's to stay home with their youngest till they turn 8, and then they are expected to return to work to help pay the tax to support other mothers to do the same. I think it is ludicrous to expect the Government to support mothers to stay at home for 18 years (per child). Society depends on everyone contributing and paying tax. Staying at home when there are no children at home during school hours is not a priority. There are better things the Government needs to spend money on. Something has to give in a budget, and paying mothers to be at home- when their children are at schoool- is a waste of money.
