its all over the news today that billions of pounds are owed in child maintenance.
some say £50 a week isn't enough and the others say your lucky to get that or his going on holiday every so often and splashing money on a lavish lifestyle.
my kids get £5 pocket money a week and we live as a couple. he pays the bills, morgage, food and i pay the council tax.
so let's say the woman has split up with the ex dad, then isn't the £50 P/W enough? I'm sure these mum's are using this money for something else. it's more than enough, it covers dinner money, a takeaway and pocket money and even bus fares to school. what else does a child need every week?
