    Well Lilly appears to think it should not happen at all,
    I think 8 years is plenty of time,
    I think though once the youngest child is in school back to work programs should take affect, cutting $200 of someone is wrong, it should instead place a bigger focus on training etc so when the child is 8 a parent has a higher chance of a job.

    Single parents ARE limited more in work hours etc because care only goes certain hours and an employee is far more likely to employ someone who can work 'whenever' over someone limited to 9.15-2.45

    It can be done ladies, you can be a single parent and work! I know people who have done/are doing it!! Particularly when you're kids are at school.

    But I guess those with the mentality that they are entitled to be handed everything would see it as too much like hard work and require effort and will never change their minds.

    I think the amount of time is fine. I was replying to someone that seems to think single parents don't deserve any money.

    And if your husband didn't end up being such a 'great' father and your work made you redundant? Or you weren't on maternity leave? Or your now ex just doesn't pay his share of child support?

    Ok I think we might agree but not sure, I think that the help should happen before these kids hit school and time is almost up. I think that maybe around 2 the kids should get child care and parents should have to do some form of study or work it should happen when time is almost up. If done right they wont need that $200 when the child is 6 or 8. By that time they will most likely be in full time work and supporting themselves pretty well. Of course some will have stuff happen and not make it like others but if they are really trying and just cant do it for reasons out of their control then maybe they can get an exemption and get a bit more help.

    From what I see now is the government is saying your years are up and booting them off then helping them. One generation will have to do this but the next generation wont if they implement the rules. One of the generations will have to suffer but it will be better in the generations to come.

    This is what happened in America they made the rules and those that were close to the 4 year for a lifetime mark were a bit hard off for a bit but now it flows smoothly for those having kids and needing assistance.

    I have to admit I don't really understand the sentiment that women should be "paid" (I use that term loosely) to stay home until their kids are in school. I don't see why it's an issue to return to work earlier than that and have them in some sort of care.

    like I said in an earlier post, most single parents either work or study. It can be done, but there are also some who lose their job.

    I worked when I was a single parent, but this was after the 12 months I had to wait on the child care waiting list. Before that, I worked one day per week while my oarents watched DS (the absolute maximum I could ask of them, with them both working fulltime).

    i still qualified for some PPS when I worked the 1 day per week thankfully.

    I think you have very romantic ideals in your head of what single parenting is. My DS's father was employed while I was with him. Pretty ironic how he quit work as soon as we broke up so I received a grand total of something like $2.86 a month. Wooooo hoooo!

    My son is just as deserving to have a parent at home as ANY other child REGARDLESS of marital status!

    This is a strawman. No one has said this.... People are trying to explain why it's not as black and white as get out and get a job when you are single. That's all. I fully support primary carers training or looking for work once the kids are at school. The issue is that the govt is doing little with the logistics of how this happens. They are saying study or get work, but are not addressing the barriers to why it's so hard for them to work.
