Having watched My Son and his partner struggle with a prem baby, and try to keep up with home payments ect. in that period & the cost of travel to and from the hospital, I think some thing must be done to support those who have been trying to do the right thing, and support young Aussie family growth.

We pay high tax rates, yet are behind other countries like Sweden, which offer better paid paternity leave than Australia.

Parental leave should be scrapped. Pay the mothers to stay home and bring up their children themselves and not by strangers. The dole budgets should be given food and clothing coupons with a minimal amount of cash.

I am signing because as a 3rd year RN student, I want to know when I decide to have children I can have peace of mind knowing I can get paid parental leave

Payed parental leave should be available to all tax paying Australia regardless of gender. Baby needs mum and dad in the early months. The government can afford to pay for 12 weeks leave and then maybe employer can put in 12 weeks as well.
