I was refused this - my maternity leave had to start when the baby was born on Aug 21st.

Why would she want to delay it?

If having more time off school is so important, there is an alternative way...

I don't know what all the fuss is about.

If men had babies, we'd probably take the afternoon off to give birth, but we'd certainly be back at
work the next morning.

You women - several months off just to pop a sprog!

It's all a question of money - sadly. But if there's a chance for an extra fortnight on full pay, it
makes sense to ask don't you think?

Absolutely. Everything else in life you can't have unless you can afford it. Unless you are a woman
wanting kids, then taxpayers have to fund it, what a jioke.

Resign, stay at home, look after the baby until it's at school.

"It's all a question of money..." really makes me mad.

Just completing my 11th year of teaching and still not taken 1 sick day!

The irony is that without children to teach, we would soon be out of work - so part of our taxes go
towards the costs of bringing into the world the children we will eventually teach. Ultimately, of
course, the more children that are born now, the more tax will be paid in twenty-one year's time.

Sounds like a bargain to me. After all, these are the workers who will fund my pension when I retire
- in twenty-one years, funnily enough.

The joke is rather that there are still neanderthals like you who - in spite of years of universal
education - can't get their heads round the obvious notion that maternity benefits are an aspect of
the way civilised societies respect children, parenthood and equality.

Or rather it would be a joke if it weren't so pathetic. And sad.

You're attitude makes me mad. Some of us would love to 'resign, stay at home and look after the
baby until it starts school', but don't have that as an option. You pay my mortgage, and I'll
gladly stay at home.

And by the way, I'm in my 12th year of teaching, have had 2 kids during this time, and have only had
7 days of sick. Am I a hero as well?

Let me see, I pay 6% into the teachers pension plus 9% for additional years plus NHI for 44 years,
plus my PEPs and ISAs, nope they won't be contributing to mine, I have paid it myself.

No you have been paying the pensions of retired staff.

Who will pay your pension when you retire?

I have heard this before and I simply quote from the guidebook to the teachers pension scheme which
is in front of me.

"You pay 6% of salary towards your pension" (note the word your) "In certain circumstance you may
also elect to pay additional contributions towards your pension" (note again the word your)

I can keep on with similar quotes but we would all get bored and I don't need to unless you can
prove otherwise.

Furthermore you are incorrect about the money I save for my pension in PEPs and ISAs, I can assure
you it is not paying anyones pension at the moment.

So far as my state pension is concerned, if what you are suggesting is true that means that the
politicians have been telling lies, surely not.
