Women who want to be ‘compensated' for their ‘unpaid childcare labour' are the female version of men saying they won't ‘babysit' their own kids, amirite?

Agree - if you have a kid, then man up and raise him to be a responsible, well rounded contributing member of society.

Make childcare free so people can work, if people choose to forgo free childcare you can pay them to raise their children, simple.

So wait a minute. Let's say we make childcare free. You're saying people who have the free option available but choose not to use it should just be paid anyway? What kinda sense does that make?

Because they aren't using the money the government would be paying the companies to look after their children.

It's the same reason the government in my country still funds private schools, because they lift the burden off the public system.

Well.. if private schools are dependent on public money, what exactly makes them private? I mean aside from a little freedom with rules and hiring, how is it private?

Also, education is something we want to incentivise. Single motherhood isn't.

Because parents pay to send their kids there as well so the school can often afford to have better facilities/opportunities for their students. Furthermore they could teach certain aspects the parents like, for example they could be affiliated with a specific religion.

And this isn't incentivising single motherhood it is incentivising choice and childcare. A mother could choose to put her child in childcare and work, or she could stay at home and look after her child or she could hire a private company/person to look after the child.

If the government sets $x amount for each child for their care, how is it fair that they shouldn't receive equal access?

Furthermore you are looking at childcare like it's nothing, early childhood development is super important and just as important as education to a healthy nation.

Paying people 50k a year to raise their own kids would absolutely incentivise single motherhood and would kill the childcare industry. I mean you talked about women going out for career opportunities... what job is better than being $50K a year to stay home with the kids?

I'm not looking at it like it's noting, I'm looking at it like you looking after your own kids doesn't entitle you to other people's money

What is 'unpaid childcare labour'?

@freq432 What is 'unpaid childcare labour'?

Some women say that basically the job of being a mother should be compensated by the government because they see it as them doing a job they're not paid for

@browndog888 That's ridiculous.

You think that's ridiculous you should hear how much some of them think they deserve. I've seen people on twitter suggesting motherhood is a $50K a year job.

I don't really care I just find it hypocritical to get on a guy's ass for saying he doesn't want to babysit his own kids only to then say you deserve to be paid by the government for looking after your own kids.

@BigMemer You think that's ridiculous you should hear how much some of them think they deserve. I've seen people on twitter...

Well if we pay her can we -the government via our taxes- take ownership of the child at 18? If we're going to put it those terms it sounds like raising cattle.

It's the first I've heard of it. Ya, that's obviously hypocritical. Worse than that, though, I feel bad for the kids whose parents have that kind of mentality - what a way to grow up.

Understand what you are saying, but IMO, a woman who doesn't want to raise her own kids perhaps shouldn't have any. I'm not talking about moms/women who have to work.

Watching your own kid without your employer paying you.

@Squintygibberoses4jt Watching your own kid without your employer paying you.

Why would an employer pay people for watching their own kids? That makes no sense.

If they do it full time, they should get paid for it. Work is work. The pay should come from her husband who is the sole source of income in the family, not the government.

Actually I do think it's a good idea for the government to sponsor a certain part of those costs because of how expensive raising kids are these days, and we're essentially raising what would be the country's future. But if the government were to give out money for raising a child, it should be on a per child basis rather than a per housewife basis.

However, if you take government money, then they are going to tell you what to do, where to go, etc.
