Cassieh and kw seem to have a huge probkem with sahm's. If ppl who can "afford it" have babies they can afford not to get any govt assistance.
I don't think some ppl realise that you have to be on a very low income...like you have to earn nothing and your partner s low income to get govt assistance. You can earn up to $150, 000 and still get ftb a I think. ..surely those ppl don't need it??

Being a sahm doesn't necessarily mean women sit at home. ..they have hobbies...study....other interests. And you can't get any extra money if your not entitled to it...u can lie and fraud and eventually get caught but if your only entitled to a certain amouny then thats all u can ever get.
Why do you have a problem with women not eventually going back to work? Some women get involved in their kids school. Some women volunteer. There's so many reasons why a woman doesn't go back to work. What if she can't find part time school hours? ? And there is no one to pick up the kids? ? Sooo many situations where your blanket statement doesn't apply.

U know that you don't actually have to work for the whole 12 mths leading up to taking ppl? Your eligible if you work for 330 hours in the 12 months leading up your leave...thats 1 day a week for a 7 hour day. So should women who have worked for 15 years get more ppl than one who worked for 12 mths???
I totally see where delirium us coming from.
I totally think it's fair to get more in ppl than bb if you have been working. We are fortunate to live in a country that gives us this assistance.

Short term government is fantastic.. I agree that all mothers should have the option to take a year off to spend with their kids... But when does it stop? And why does being a mum give you the excuse not to work?? Especially if your kids are in school or high school when they can catch a bus home.
To be clear.. If you can afford to stay at home then great. But I get sick of hearing how hard done by SAHMS are. If you want more money, work!

Did you read the posts between delirium and I on this thread? If you have, and you still think that about me, and think my views are the same as cassie's then I think you are having issues comprehending my posts.

Just to be clear Cassieh - women simply can't stay at home when their kids are in primary or high school and still get payments. They have to look for work or study. So that is a moot point. The tax payer is not paying for women to stay home when their kids are to school.
I don't think anyone is saying SAHM's are badly done by. I've been a working mum and a SAHM and I love my life. I'm just tired of the constant bagging out of SAHMs and the double standards from some working mums who are happy to receive support themselves which is well above the BB (and again, I support that) then whinge about the BB. Just seems hypocritical......

The above, along with your lack of knowledge about the amount of tax you get back as a single mum, shows that you really have no idea what you're on about. You're just trying to put down sahms and your reasoning is not justified.
