    If anything i think most WM are jealous of SAHM, so i dont think its 'superiority' thing. Thats the way you feel and your entitled to feel so.

    The government doesnt have to fund our lives. If we couldnt afford our lifestyle anymore we would have to move. If i have no money, i dont buy anything. It sucks but its a fact of life and theres no point in me stamping my feet for free money to sustain my choice to live where we do-you change your circumstances.
    Spot on. I just get tired of people whingeing when there's a cut to benefits. If your finding it difficult to make ends meet you need to reevaluate your situation and see what you can do to change it. We have been doing it tough too since dh was made redundant last year just as I was expecting our 3rd baby then I had to finish work early due to an injury. Unfortunately I'm not able to return to my fulltime position earlier. So instead of sitting around whingeing, stressing or worrying about how the mortgage is going to be paid while we only have one income coming in, I have got off my a### and was prepared to do anything work wise to get me by and make life financially easier for us and I'm damn proud of my efforts.

    Nor do I do so on the hub.
    No not all But there are a vocal group on here that have become quite unpleasant lately. I just skimmed the thread again for fear I was maybe over reacting. But nope, some pretty b*tchy responses to the OP. Of course passively aggressively worded.

    This is what I don't understand as to why I only get 6.30 of FTB B. I'm only on partnered payments and my partner doesn't earn much. It's crazy hard with only 200 to live off one week :/

    Op I've reported your post so hopefully a mod sees it. I'm sorry this thread has caused you more stress. I know how hard it can be when you're under financial stress.

    Shouldn't it be like the dole in that case and those with kids 6 and over need to show they're either studying or actively seeking work, instead of taking FTB B away as a blanket rule when all kids are 6 or over?

    No one should be penalised if they decide to live rurally, they wind up a single parent or don't have family or friends to be their village. So there has to be more of a case by case approach

    Thanks to the ladies who have been so lovely. I'm terribly sorry that this tread has gotten so out of hand. It's not an easy thing to go through but we will make it work. I'm thinking uni might just have to wait for now.
