Parenting payments (letter)


by Carol Phillips

News Weekly, August 11, 2001
Sir,

The recent Federal Budget raised an item of concern to me, as a mother who is to be "induced" into a day of paid employment when my youngest child is 13 in order to receive the full Parenting Payment.

I believe that some exceptions should be permitted for women who are gainfully employed full-time, even though they are unpaid.

I speak especially for home-schooling mothers like myself, although there must be others in this category.

My youngest child is eight years old and if I am to be able to home-school her through her secondary education, I will need to be available full-time, leaving no time even for a day of paid work.

I believe that the Government needs to be informed of the necessity of such exemptions.

Carol Phillips,
Burswood, WA
