How should the Govt help families?
Assistance for families is shaping as a key issue in the September election and we'd like to hear what family-focused policies would win your vote.
This year's Budget was labelled "family friendly".
Paid parental leave will increase to 18 weeks under National, and will be available to parents in different kinds of work. Parental tax credits will also rise and there will be free GP visits for under-13s.
Labour has promised to increase paid parental leave to 26 weeks, and says the Government's offering isn't good enough.
What do you think of the proposed policies to help parents and children? Do they go far enough or can you suggestion other ways to help families?
Are you happy to with the proposed paid parental leave extension?
