    Highlighting one's own achievements rarely helps as everyone has their own circumstances.
    I have prepared yet still at a disadvantage. I was given no hours at work next week for the fortnightly roster. I had to ask my 74yr old nana to look after coop for a night just so i can work 5 hours. To get another shift which i have to start at 6:30am, i have to send him to a school friends house at 6am so i can walk up to work by 6:20am to read over notes etc as BSC doesnt open til 6:30am. I feel like i have wasted my time working a job i want to do.

    I dont feel like i will be any better off working. I am so limited with what hours i can do unless i want to pay someone $20hr just so i can then earn $3.67 an hour working my @ss off as i wouldnt be earning my full hourly rate paying off the babysitter.

    I also thought I would add I'm not a single mum, nor have I ever been. Doesn't mean I can't see why single mums are upset.

    Oh, and when someone is struggling to get by, that is not the time they are in a position to consider looking for work or beginning studies.

    It is only when they feel stability in their life that they can turn their attentions to such things.

    Just been doing some research on this and thought id share some links:

    http://singlemum.com.au/features/sin...son-bryce.html

    http://www.singlemotherforum.com/vie...2&t=2035#p9414

    http://www.theaustralian.com.au/nati...-1226351404890

    http://www.westernadvocate.com.au/ne...s/2548605.aspx

    I thought by sharing these links those that were confused, or simply did not understand the situation for what it is or will be can now have a insight into the situation.
