ya at jurong .. near my house in jurong ..
But there are certain issue within us, we are not divorce yet. BUt not stying together anymore. He keep saying that he is trying very hard now....and like i must forgive him like that....he told me recently that he is giving up....said i too nasty to him! crazy!!!
yes i can't forgive him....but he can't force me to forgive him also what....
Anyway, without him better ....
I read your thread regarding about high price of CC. May I know the $600 they quoted you is before or after govt subsidy?
I am a divorced parent with 2 kids, the younger 1 is still in CC. I put her in firstskool, $550 before subsidy. Also, I applied more subsidy from CDAC as my salary is below $1.5k. If you are not earning more than 1.5k per month, you can tell the CC that you want to apply for it. But is quite troublesome, CDAC's subsidy only last 6mths so got to fill up forms every few months.
Now CDAC is subsiding $188 per month so I am only paying $62 for the CC. It does help me a lot in financially and I will have $ to settle my other expenses.But if I didnt remember wrongly, the child must be under your care and control in order to apply.
I didnt really read their requirements as I got sole custody. I also rent a 2-room flat from govt almost immediately even though I sold a flat (due to divorce) within 30 mths. No choice, my ex wanted to get cash back and I got no $ to buy his shares. I did a lot of research before I filed for divorce as I dont want my kids to sleep in the streets.
You should really consider of getting your son's care & control under you since you will be the one taking care and bringing him up.
So far we've only given in to my boy twice, cos I really want the get the toy for him (education toy which I've been eyeing). But we do not buy it when he throws a tantrum. I buy it after that, when he shows us he can behave. & he'll go "OH MY! It's my toy! I like this toy! I LOVE YOU MUMMY!" when we reach home & I give it to him.
