    I don't think she meant that at all, just saying that the government seems to value working mothers over SAHMs? I think?

    The two aren't comparable.
    That's what I got from it too.

    Default Anyone know if the baby bonus budget cut is going to affect paid parental leave??

    Note the stars around *good mum*? Why does this whole forum have to constantly be in attack mode?!

    Tell me about it, pretty shocked to see that post got people's hackles up, relax peeps. It's my interpretation of a Labour government policy. Not my belief, k?

    Thanks hubbers, should have thought to actually read the budget..... (on second thoughts that sounds pretty onerous.....) Pregnancy brain instead sent me into a fit of tears at the thought of leaving a 6 week old at day care


    Please don't turn this into a debate over SAH parenting versus working families, it's two totally different things and dependent on each individual family (and soooo many other factors) and that wasn't my intent at all of this post. I'm sure there was no malice intent from other posters directed at anyone's choices or needs.


    Have a good day!
