Child Benefit

I heard on todays news that from this week Child Benefit is to be restricted to 2 children. At Long Last !!!!! Course I dont suppose it will apply to the folk who already claim for 10 or 12 children just new claimants. Still it is welcome step in the right direction dont you think ?

When you say "step in the right direction",are you suggesting that it should be capped at one child or scrapped altogether?

What about those who find themselves having triplets, or other multiple births?

Your winter allowance may be next

Re: Child Benefit

Should there still be any child benefit? Should people have a child if they are not in a financial position to support a child without expecting others to pay towards its upkeep?

Re: Child Benefit

In this day and age there is no excuse for having children if folk cannot afford to them.As for my comment ' A step in the right direction' I just think it is time something is done to reduce benefits so that they cannot be relied on in stead of folk getting off their backsides and working to keep their own families. My generation had personal pride and felt it their duty to provide for their families, taking any job that they could get. Ofcourse if folk were on the dole and they were offered a job and they didnt take it their dole money was stopped .

What about if some poor soul was inpregnated via a sexual assault and decided to keep the child?

So is it a administration problem?
There's always some that take the Mick and the media will always try and demonise them while folk like to play armchair judges.

No there shouldn't, at least, in a world where everyone is responsible for their actions, unfortunately too many folk don't consider having a small number of children to be something they should be responsible for.

Of course it's not the child's fault, however irresponsible parents shouldn't get a free ride.

I also only had the two, anyone that wants more should be free to have them so long as they are prepared to take on the financial responsibility to feed clothe and educate them, it should be no-one elses responsibility.

Unfortunately that isn't the way it works, those that don't give a sod about anything tend to be the ones that ignore birth control, after all, society will take over from their lack of responsibility!

Nothing to do with it, that is just you trying to side track from the main problem.
