Wow, I’ve never heard of such a thing as ‘child benefit’.  What exactly is it?  Does everyone with children get this benefit if they are eligible?

@pinkshoes:  I think the US has something similar with taxes.  Each child gets you a sveral thousand dollar deduction on your income taxes if you meet some income requirements.  I want to say it’s around 5k per child, which breaks down to roughly $96 per week saved.

Personally, I think a lot of tax issues need to be overhauled and reexamined.  I can’t say what the limit should be, but clearly some people don’t need it as much as others.
