Yeah well accidents happen and they'll find a way to manage (though father isn't getting a choice about a snip after this one
his wife said). The kids are a good bunch and their gran is always ready to pitch in a lend an extra hand.
Jan your daughter is lucky yo have you two
Not that my parents aren't great
they've always tried to help me as much as possible and so glad that their willing to put up with me for now till I find my feet.
Most parents would do what yours have done - I shouldn't think you are too hard to put up with! Emma can come home whenever she chooses and she did let us help last year when she desperately needed another car (she needs it for work) - we were happy to do that.
My understanding of the history of Child Benefit was that it was paid, post war, to encourage people to have children to help shore up the depleted population. As this is no longer a requirement, Child Benefit should be scrapped, IMO, thereby saving £6.7 billion.
Oh Daisy that's a sweeping comment! I feel child benefit should be given to those who really need it - after all, life and circumstances change and some who are swinging along quite happily with 2/3 children on a decent job can suddenly be made redundant etc - then they should have some help until they get on their feet again - that is one incident where child benefit must remain.
