    Just for what it is worth

    there is no such thing as a life term lease anymore,
    they existed 30 + years ago when the demand for public housing was not as high

    if you are in public housing now you are given a minimum term least of 2 or so years and then reevaluated, if your needs have changed (child left home etc) you have 2 choices, accept being moved to a smaller house OR leave housing dept

    the housing dept has a massive shortage of available space full stop, great lets move all these old people out of their homes ... and put them where exactly? there are not a great deal of public housing options full stop here, I know of people living in private accomidation which public housing is paying part of because there is not enough units or houses to go around.


    my sister left her partner, she was told she would be put at the bottom of the waiting list because she was not technically "homeless" (my mother took her in), she had 4 children 6 and under,

    at the same time I KNOW a woman who has 2 children who got evicted simply because she did not pay her rent, as she was now facing "homelessness" (despite having family in the area) she was entitled to accomidation and got a 3 bedroom house,

    the system is under funded and over taxed and there is simply not enough places to meet demand,
    the problem is not the "selfish old bats" who wont move from their HOME that they were given for LIFE 30 + years ago.

    , my mother would not choose to live with family either unless she had to so no I am NOT selfish, she is a capable person who is fully able to maintain her own living environment and self, she requires NO extra help and is happy living with just my father and her

    eta - nowif she experianced a change in health or my father passed or she became unable to maintain herself, house or lifestyle or simply didnt feel able to live unassisted I would take her in in a heart beat, I would take ANY of my family in if the cercumstance required it but we dont choose to share because we have our own houses and our own life styles and ways of doing things,

    if we can afford our houses etc no I dont tihnk our families should be shoved together to live, that would NOT work

    Wow, thats pretty harsh. Not everyone gets along with their family. I have my 21yr old cousin and her 3yr old with me. I am thankful they havent been here for about 2mths now as i honestly believe i would of done something i would regret.

    I cant wait for august to come as she finally leaves. I cant wait for my privacy back, my child to have all the space again and me not having to worry about if everything is still at home when i come home after work.

    I couldnt live with my parents again. Being seperated was better for our relationship. I know the day my parents will be back will come sooner rather than later as my dad is very sick but i dont want that day to come but he will need a carer.

    Gosh, thats a rough situation, id feel terrified if one day i got notified "strangers are moving in!" that would be terrible. You would have all of your stuff already, they would probably have stuff too, so where would it all go? Could you trust the person? Would single mums with kids get put in with other single mums with kids? Would the kids get a long or would it be a ightmare? Would one parent be really relaxed and let their child do whatever while u maintain a strict household?

    One persn is a slob the other suffers etc?

    That would suck soooo bad.

    I couldn't live with my mum either. She completely takes over to the point where, after 6 weeks of us being together, my child started behaving like my mother was the parent and I was the sister she doesn't have to listen to. Not everyone can live with their parents as adults. I had my brother here, I could easily live with him. He is like the brother to my daughter, although at 23 I don't parent him, he treats me like a parent to him, someone to turn to and trust. Different dynsmics work for different people.

    We are one of the few countries in the world who do not share with their extended family. You just have to make do, but I guess this sense of entitlement takes over from what is better for everyone.

    Yes our society is different to others. I don't think it has anything to do with a 'sense of entitlement'. It more has to do with different cultures and beliefs.

    Marie, do you share with your family? How does people in housing affect YOUR way of life? Do we make YOUR life much harder? Do we interfer with your life?

    Do you think it should be one rule for some and another set of rules for others?

    But we DO make do lol, I rent privately, as does 99 percent of my entire family.

    We make do with what we have and we ALL have homes so you know ...

    I dont see how living in over crowded conditions with people you fight with is better for anyone at all,

    As I stated if the situation required I would take my family in in a heart beat but were not gunna all move in together and live one room per family for no reason.
