Mods can you please delete this thread. I am just wanting it not to pop up as it is a very emotional issue for me right now. I thought that it would be a supportive environment but it's made me very upset. I'm sorry for the trouble - Thank you

I think your letting your own issues with sahm vs wm get the better of you on this one, because that really wasnt what anyone was saying at all. Of course everything i have said applies to WM. As i said, if we lose money we have to move or make other allowances. Money doesnt fall out of the sky for either 'team' and we need to make decisions on how to tackle the hurdles when they are thrown at us.

I already work 6.5hrs a day and we barely make it through even with the centrelink i get. I still got a few more years to go before i can can legally leave kiddo at home alone but if i have to do it sooner, guess i have no choice in the matter. Its either a choice of working(atm my job isnt family friendly hours as its shift work but stable in the hours, morning, afternoon and night shift with night shift being the most friendly as kiddo would be sleeping those hours and i could get back in time for him to get to school in time otherwise morning shift starts too early for BSC and cant do arvo coz i cant leave him home alone to cook and put himself to bed and i wouldnt get home til after 10:30pm.) or i could go onto newstart and not work even though i am capable of working?
Its also not as simple as find a new job. Trust me, i been trying but i am unqualified in many things and people dont want to do the training. I could always go back to study but i dont think i could study and cut down on my work hours as for me to study, i need to be in a class environment as too many distractions for me at home or anywhere else to study by long distance.
I shall continue to put my name down for night shift esp for when my dad passes away and hope for the best and wont have anyone call up the police or whoever about me leaving kiddo home alone so i can work.

I'm not allowing my SAHM status to affect how I've read this thread anymore than you've had your working status affect it. There is a clear us and them thing on here and working mums have come to treat SAHM's with such thinly veiled contempt and superiority.
