The "Allowance for Newborn Children" gave $500 per family for a first-born child and up to $8,000 for a third child. That program was scrapped in 1997.

And Quebec is the only province to have its own parental-leave program having opted of the federal program. It pays up to 75 per cent of insurable earnings.

And it's now $7/day subsidized daycare.

Socialism.

Saw last night's episode and it was shocking in how rude the children were. I blame the parents.

They went to DC and for dinner to an Ethiopian restaurant. There were also some Ethiopian dancers performing during the meal. The children (and this includes the oldest one and his WIFE) spent the entire time rolling their eyes at the performance, holding their noses at the food (not kidding), and whining about how gross it was. Neither parent tried to correct the children at any point.

Shocking IMO.

please, think of the children.
This is why you think women should stay home and home school, right? Going to daycare or school is just too damn confusing.

I watch almost no TV but what I do watch is usually really bad. Mostly because it's an effective way to wind down after a long day (my brain is okay for the first 12 hours of work, it starts to fry after that though).

There is something healing and relaxing about really awful TV.

It's working. 2 years into the program and fertility rates are back to 1976 levels.

The Bates family are more frightening, in terms of extreme fundamentalist indoctrination. They show up occasionally on the Duggar's programme, with their cute colour-coded family uniforms and so on.
