For starters, please don't assume everybody has the care of their children subsidized. Some working parents receive very little or no child. We are middle income earners receive almost nothing back. But I am certainly not complaining nor do I EXPECT to receive this benefit. It's wonderful that we live in a country that supports its people so well (and it really does) but this entitled attitude some people have is what annoys me. By the way, everybody is entitled to an opinion and there is no need for the 'defensiveness' that seems to come about when there are opinions that go against the grain.

Whilst you don't receive FTB or rent assistance etc, others don't receive rebates on childcare. So there are different ways of receiving benefits. I for one would be lost without my child care rebate as I would be working for a pittance without it. But I understand that SAHMs receive assistance at a much lower rate than my earning capacity so I don't hold that against them either. I could do the same but I would rather work and have more money. Does that make sense? I wouldn't take it too personally - some people on here just like you to see the broader picture. I think that can only be a good thing

Given that the op was questioning why some SAHPs feel that they should be entitled to at least as much government assistance as working parents, can I ask if any SAHMs here actually feel that way. Do you think the amount you recieve from the government is unfair compared to what working parents get?

They would get FTB cause well even though kids are at school they are in their care that's a given but other payment ssuch and new start and others are regulated you can't just get them for example new start you have to be actively looking for work you have to report in every fortnight prove you have applied for jobs etc etc.

Do I begrudge working parents getting assistance in the form of CCR, PPL etc? No way.
Do I begrudge SAHM's whose partner earns less than mine, getting more assistance? Not at all. That's what its there for. To assist people.
I will never understand why some people get so up in arms about it. How does how much assistance someone else gets, affect you? This is one reason why I don't share information about our financial situation with our friends or family - because its no ones business but our own

I think income should be based purely on family income for all aspects rather than single income. Partner A taxable income + Patner B taxable income - # of Dependents = family taxable income. Then tax worked out on this amount and proportioned out to each partner. That way, government support could be proportioned to lower income families, single income families and so on.
On a side note- I got taxed $11,000 last year!
