Budget 2011

With rising costs and increased learning needs, financing our children's education is no longer a simple walk in the park. Discuss with other parents about how they are managing their finances to cope with their expenses.

I want more subsidy in Childcare and more child care leave for subsequent kids.

Eg: 1st child - 6 days, 2nd child - additional 3 days, 3rd child - additional 1 day. Maximum 10 days.

Nowadays, once our kid fall sick, we parent needs to take at least 2-3days leave to monitor them at home. 6 days is not enough for 2 kids and above.

if i am not wrong, the birth rate actually dropped after the last implementation of childcare leave. Thus, there were some talks that the childcare leave is not good enough to make people wanting to have more children.

GST more likely to increase then decrease...

My wish is for the new launch houses to be released asap after the election.
