    However I also know exactly where DA is coming from. DA lives in the town next to my home town, where I lived for 22 years. In her town, my town and the other towns around us, there are alot of young mums (in their late teens / early 20s). The towns are quite small (compared to where I live now, anyway) and there's not always alot to do or easy job opportunities - if you want a good job you've got to work bloody hard for it. Therefore, a lot of teens don't have much ambition - boys and girls - and they see kids as the "easy way out" - having kids simply means they don't have to go out and look for a job. They get money from the government and a lovely $5000 bonus which they all love - because you know, 5 grand goes a long way towards raising a child, right? My OH's cousin had a baby last year and said to us that they were going to have another one as soon as they could because she loved not having to go to work anymore and because they wanted another $5000. She actually said that.

    I went to school with a girl who would purposly get pregnant (or pretend she was) so her boyfriend wouldn't break up with her. Then she'd "lose" it. Then next time they had a fight she'd be 'pregnant' again.

    Seriously - so many of these people are bored and babies are so cute and tiny aren't they. Just the same as why people get puppies.

    There are seriously some awesome young mums out there. But sadly there's more than enough bad ones to give the good mums a bad name.
    Yeah it's people like that who do give the rest of us a bad name. Seriously mind boggling when people do it soley for the baby bonus. Do they honestly think a child isn't going to cost ALOT more than that in the long run?
    I definitely think it's good that the gov started paying it in installments. Hopefully that makes people stop and think about their decision.

    Not ALL young mums are like you. Actually, in my experience you and others like you who have obviously taken on parenthood responsibly and maturely are in the minority, NOT the majority. Hell no, I don't have stastical figures from the Govt or Centrelink to back up my opinion on that, and I also don't feel I should be required to here. It is MY OPINION that a large majority of young teen mothers just should not be having children.
    As C & B said above, maybe things are different in your towns. I don't see alot of it where I am.
    Thanks for elaborating in your response for me. It's nice to know you don't have that opinion on ALL young mums

    (ps it's tomorrow, it's tomorrow )

    The latest is because last weekend I went to help whippersnip the runs in the morning at kennels we keep some of our rescues for a couple of hours instead of spending time with him, at lunchtime I left to go straight to his place, called him to say I was on my way and he told me to go home instead. He has always known I am heavily involved with rescue, it is my passion.

    Right now I DO prefer my animals over him, do I question his commitment to his kids? No! I understand they come first, I hate that he sees them as competition.

    So tonight on msn (he never confronts me face to face) I copped it yet again, I kept my cool, but inside I am fuming!

    Rant over....
    Ugh I can semi-relate with you there, it is so frustrating. I'm in the process of moving out with my boyfriend and he is so picky, he does not like ANY of the places I've found that allow dogs. I'll be paying most of the rent so I can't exactly afford to be picky here! And then he says; 'Well, the ones I like aren't more expensive, they just don't allow dogs.'

    And I go: "Yes....but you know Keeda has to come."
    Him: "That's fine, I guess you're picking living with your dog over your boyfriend."

    How can you accuse someone like that?! I've had Keeda since before I even met him, he is not going to guilt trip me about wanting to finally live with my own dog again.

    Funny how they can twist things around like that



    Just a minor typical man moment from me this morning. My husband asks if I can shave his head before he showers, all well and good right? He had just sat and watched me vaccuum and mop the floors. I don't exactly want his hair all over my sparkling clean tiles.

    That's immature & is emotional blackmail. He needs to grow up. On a more humourous level, you've just reminded me of a bumper sticker I saw ....

    "My husband said if I go to one more dog show, he's leaving me .... gee, I'll miss him for a while."

    What 'tha !!!! You're not his maid. He should be doing some form of "domestic" when you are.

    I've been through this one before too. My response was (admittedly nasty) "Well, you're big enough and ugly enough to look after yourself. *Dogs name* isn't, who would you pick?"

    It probably wouldn't matter if it were dogs, friends or anything else that you spent a lot of time doing or being with, he would still react the same. He is jealous of the times that you prefer someone or something else over him. It is normal and most people will feel this way.

    It doesn't neccessarily mean the relationship won't work though. It is something that you ened to work through as a couple if you think the relationship is worth it. Trust me, it will happen again in the future with others as well and I am sure you will also be in his postion somewhere along the line throughout your life. Like I said, it is normal.

    The key is how you work through this and not whether the relationship lasts the test or not. If you yourself understand and acknowledge the issue then the next time you face it, you'll handle it better and the next time it may be worth it even if this time it isn't.
    A pessimist sees the glass as half empty;
    An optimist sees the glass as half full;
    A realist just finishes the damn thing and refills it.
