    Just made an off subject comment. Don't think that is necessarily against the rules.

    Parents that stay home are still paying child care expenses. You would have to figure in loss of income.

    No , Gloria, you know exactly what your point is. And it's interesting but your posts/day have gone way up since I came back. So it actually seems like you are quite glad I'm back. And never forget, if you lack the self control to stop yourself from replying to me feel free to use the ignore feature!

    The only ugliness I've seen is from a few defensive posters who pull out the profanity and other garbage to defend their position. Sometimes it DOES get ugly because of the passion we feel about our causes and opinions, and I too step away when it gets really heated and I have nothing of value contribute. That's what we have mods for. I don't really see any big group disrespecting the rules of this board. Yeah, now and then by a person or two, but i think basically is if you can't handle the opposition then it's best not to be here. And, I'm not talking about YOU, Gloria, just a general 'you' comment.

    Perhaps you did not read what I wrote correctly. OR you just feel like fighting, I tend to agree more with the latter because that is exactly what you do and TRY to do on these boards.



    Dumb people need to be regulated from buying beer etc who are on public assistance. So YES absolutely people are DUMB among a lot of other things, who buy these garbage things instead of food and the things this money is intended to buy with their public assistance they buy beer etc.


    I absolutely do NOT feel pity or softness in my heart for those people. Now who I do feel softness and desire to help are the people trying to make their lives work and do the best by themselves and their families.
    But for the grace of God go I.

    As I'm sure everyone else did too. I wonder why that is if it isn't true? But don't flatter yourself, how much I post depends a lot on the topic and how busy I am at work. I can take it just fine, just like debating much better when everyone can be respectful.

I know you're an intelligent person so there must be some other reason for the issue to be digging at you so much. I cannot help you or anyone further. I think it is time for a break before it goes too far. I am not a fighting person. So, with that, I would kindly like to decline to comment further on this.

    These are the words you used. Direct quote, btw!

    And that is why dumb people need to be regulated from buying lotto, beer, cigarettes and cashed in to buy all sorts of non related to survival.

There is no rule, however, on how that benefit should be applied. Some lower income people and those on social assistance AND those families with higher income probably use it for dipes, clothing, or even non-essentials (like lottery tickets, beer, whatever, and some families who have a stay-at-home parent probably use that benefit for things other than child care, even though the benefit is designed to give families a break in their child care expenses. We choose to put that money into an account we opened for the kids and then decide what to do with it later, so we're not technically using it for their child care expense (currently $1310 per month). Am I defrauding the govt of the purpose of the benefit?
    We lose that when they turn 6!!! I totally forgot about that. DD turns six this year.....darn! I dont work (in fact, I do some daycare), so I count that benefit towards my income. It comes as a check though, so I dont see how anyone could say what exactly it gets spent on, as I just deposit it into my account and then use it as my money.

    Same here. DD turns 6 in two months. I reminded DH about that the other day (about the cheque being cut in half) and he was like "wha??". Man, time sure flies. See, and I am saying the same thing that you are - It's technically assistance to help with child care, but we don't really need help with child care (though we totally appreciate the extra money), so we put that money aside for the kids, like maybe we'll put it into an RESP or TFSA or whatever. I wonder if that is kind of considered to be defrauding the govt of my own tax dollar?
