Check with the childcare. I think still can get working mother subsidy if you can show that you are actively looking for job or looking after another kid.

This is a tough one, given that nobody would want his/her child to "struggle" and/or "lose out". A related question, I would say, would be "How to instill the joy of learning in our children? To t
