How do you do it?

REPLY

yes i will get a job thank you now that my youngest started school, unfortunately i don.t have family to watch my kids for me and by time i paid daycare fees for the kids if i worked it would take my wage and besides i liked raising my kids myself, and i actually didn't hear myself complaining neither? How about you get some manners? i just graduated psychology major which i did online through university of southern qld for past 3 years, so plan on using this to get into therapy/counselling, however we are in rural qld so not many jobs around but thanks again for your input....

If you want to be any good as a councellor maybe drop the raising my own kids superiority crap. It makes you sound pathetic and mean. And sexist. Does your husband not raise his own kids?

I'm a different responder, but don't you dare make mothers who have to with feel guilty for using daycares! That's just as awful as the other responder making stay at home mums feel bad for not working.
Why is it everyone's mission to make others feel shittyabout themselves

I don’t see her making anyone feel guilty or writing anything negative about anyone using child care. What she said is really well thought out ... the cost of daycare would eat her entire wage so the choice they made for their family was she stay home.

Jeez

Congratulations on your studies too! Having done what you did and raise a family takes some dedication. Good luck in your new career!

What is ur business from home? If you can choose to work extra hours and earn more? 🤔

ANSWER
1 year ago
Me 47000, hubby 37000. And about to lodge a lump sum claim for ftb.
But without ftb we actually are fine financially, never miss a bill, eat great, kids get great presents at birthdays and xmas.
If we get ftb it'll go in our rainy day savings in case something dire happens.
We both pay more tax as we don't claim tax free threshold too so we just got 13000k back.
And we still have family holidays twice a year.

I earn $75000 and hubby about $65000. I also get carers payment for my son who has high medical needs just under $3500 a year. I receive child support for my son (sometimes - huge arrears bill in the tens of thousands) but is meant to pay about $12000 a year.
So household income all up is around $155,000

Do you really need a carers payment for your own son? Seriously? Taxpayers pay you to do what you should be doing anyway for a person you brought into this world? To top it off your annual marital income is $155k.

This would has gone mad.

She means carers allowance not carers payment. It's only affected by income if u earn over 250 000. And if you were a carer on top of being a parent to your child you would know she absolutely deserve it!

My husband earns around $80,000 p/a. Whilst I receive about $380 a fortnight from Centrelink (which I don't EARN, but I'm including here for an overview of how much money we have). We're in debt up to our eyeballs. We have a mortgage, car loan, personal loan, and school fees to pay. Plus living costs.
I'm hoping to get an apprenticeship soon and pay off as much debt as possible.

No but buisness owners do...
And I work about 18 hours a week.
Before kids I worked for my parents after travelling, and took over the company at 25 .While I ran that I made between 1-1.5 million a year. When I chose to have a family I knew I couldn’t run the company and be a present mum in the way I wanted to be, so we sold the company , I used about 1 million to set up my current company which earns a lot but it allows me to do something I love and it’s giving back to my community. Plus it keeps me busy. Keeps us all in a good routine, makes it easy for us to take care of my husbands family, makes it easier to keep giving back to people...I’m considering retiring at 40.
I don’t know we will see I love my work, I might even just make the entire company free service, but I’m still hashing that all out in my head.
I also employ a lot of people so I feel a responsibility to provide work for people too given my position.
