@heatherwgaona ohh ok :(
Does your country want to have a paid/finaced parental Insurance system?
Ours cost 2.6% extra on top of every gross salary.
- Why we have a general social Insurance system for all, with different benefits?
- Well, so one can feel secure if life takes a new turn.

@SingingSupper u r welcome!!
@mattsimonato they celebrarted his life insted of mourning his death.
@MalteRoos yes true – we have high among the low ;)
@mattsimonato i was there on the morning that he died, then u could only be outside. It was fantastic – singing and dancing!
@mattsimonato roben Island?
@MalteRoos yes i know but for OECD standards its high.
@ScotsInSweden thats hard i know..
@mattsimonato I spoke at a conference in Johannesburg when he died so i went to his home in Soweto.
Later to Cape Town and robben Island
@DonGiovanna try to ask in Malmös facebookgroup.
@mattsimonato yes i was there when Mandela died. This is outside his cell on robben island.
@laguiri we need children for the country to grow. To pay taxes when we are old. To pay for pensions to produce services etc.
@DonGiovanna Malmö have a webshop online – contact them there!!
Another positive thing with our family policy is the high fertility rates.
We need alot of children beeing born. http://t.co/MX3kxnNAuk
For those who question the part time statistics. Read 4 yourselves.
@PatrikHed 37 vs 13 sry.
@PatrikHed 37% vs 12%
More women then men work parttime and also involuntarily in Sweden.
Source: SCB http://t.co/5PrBhlQyku
@Fondacey ill be back this afternoon in the matter
@Fondacey If more people work more its also good for the economy in general and for those who work.
@Fondacey ahhh ok ill look these statistics up too then. I think they exist actually. Ill be back in the matter…
@jonbo679 why do men and women choose diffrently then?
@Fondacey might be the other way around too
@Fondacey no just that we dont know how many who works part time by choice or not.
@Fondacey some work part time invoulontararly – and these choices will have economically effects for them later on.
@Fondacey the opposit figure for men in Sweden is very much lower…
@Fondacey sure then thats their choice.
@sweden its alittle cheaper here…
@pebbe they are :)
@whatboldness but they dont state the impossible thing that u state…
@whatboldness thats why we have housing allowance, maintanence support, child allowance , lower tax on food, subsidised daycare, free dental
@whatboldness where more specific?
But still we have a challange in making it possible for more women to work fultime and not parttime. http://t.co/Ra1HhgUkOV
@whatboldness yes true but then we have benefits that help single parents.
@2neuronas_ yes true – thats a problem – ill show u..
@SwedeMuses me too its great!!
@whatboldness naaah you have anything to back up that argument?
Much thanks to our family policy we have a high female labourforce- participation! http://t.co/1qAm8gbIfl
@ThePolkadotPig dont know how that helps the families? :)
In Sweden gender equality is importent for most people.
Our family policy makes it possible for both parents to have a job and children.
@GraceBellavue pippa means having sex, fuck, shag etc…
@gavinballard you get 80% upuntil annual incomes of 444 000 kr. Then often companies fill in extra ontop of that in private agreements.
@Fondacey sry ok :)
@Fondacey ahaa :)
@Rav_Bunneh parents have an equal right to the days.
@Fondacey ? That is not my experience. We have had paid maternity leave since 1957 and parental leave since 1974.
@sweden and 90 days at a low flat rate…
Obama says -US is the only developed country without paid parental leave.
In Sweden u get 480 days paid/child.
80% of salary for 390 days
@kribbemannen you need a hug i guess!
@caterwocky i will! ;)
@kribbemannen I’m not a snowman – they had 22 degrees in the sun the other day outside Torrevieja…
@Lesbiologist nope I’m toooo heavy :)
@madmaxly yes many do that.
@sweden sure is and cold.
My mother actually leaves Sweden during wintertime and stays in Spain instead.
Here is me and my daughter Lovisa at the gym.
She will one day change the world so beware! http://t.co/8UgdQH8A3a
@NicoPerez96 she had to work saturday so she could not party then :)
@sweden or somtimes thusdays or thursdays. A small party day!
”small saturday” comes from the farmers ”maid- saturday”. The Maid often couldnt get saturdays off but she could get wednesdays off.
@MDarpo ahaa i always thought it just was on wednesdays… Nice to learn new things.
@ternlund :) rent a bearsuit and hit the mall!
@Mayra_Zepeda thanks and a hug right back!
@Error_122 :) sure is!
@CassettesNMEs no :(
@MDarpo oh i didnt know that
@yoasje I’m not sure actually its always been called that. Think its just a reason for some to drink alcohol and go to the pub.
Today is the day of the hug in Sweden and internationally. It exists so we can get a chance to hug alittle bit more.
Take to the streets!
Wednesday is the ”small saturday” in Sweden.
@slovonapravo if one parent cant pay or will not pay – we pay out in advance and collect it later from the other parent.
@AntonioAntrop hi there!
@ekebom yes :( the Finns are the masters of sauna!
The problem with trancendental forcefields…a must see!
Some swedes are into New Age!
@jbeaton1993 here its the one who takes care of the child.
@hstlouis1602 the sauna was great!! :)
@Fondacey yes i know :( but in some countries its hard to get anything…
Luckely for a seperated parent like me we get atleast 1 273 kr/month/child in maintanence support from the other parent or from our agency.
RT @monikaozdoba: Poland won with Russia. Congratulations!
@paul_schulz12 ahhhh good!!! Poland also beat Russia today!

Time for the gym – but first some commercials from the famous Swede Roy Andersson
@PabloAriCua i think that its true! You get 1050 kr / month / child until the child is 16 and if they study longer u get it while they study
@Fondacey or when you get sick yourself…
@sweden yes i guess they require that too :(
One bad thing beeing a single parent of two- was that the school didnt care.
End of terms always same time/same day in 2 diff. classrooms.
@72lions I’m not sure why that is but i guess they are not building enough appartments that you can rent. :(
RT @StateOfUkraine: Reports are coming in from all over Donetsk that people are taking cover including @ the reg administration building as…
@wastydkittyn they can not afford to buy their homes in the same extent.
@Winterbay_ good question prob cohibitin in an owned flat?
Single parents often lives in tenancy / rented flats in Sweden.
Cohibitin parents own their living more often! http://t.co/6k9inFCqaC
Approx. 25% of all children in Sweden have seperated parents. 30-50% of these have alternate residence. My children also had that for 1 yr.
When parents separate the current trend in Sweden is that the children live alternate between the parents. One week at each parent.
RT @MrGeorgeWallace: I drove 700 miles to honor MLK. Standing room only, inside & out. I climbed that pole to get a look. God bless. http:/…
@CommonCormorant yes with some succsess too!
I survive the cold and dark winters by remembering the summers.
Here is where i go fishing Pike! http://t.co/rBHaUf4U9w
Tomorrow I will talk more about how It is beeing a single parent in Sweden. Both of my kids have grown up living with me most of the time.

@stielli he he
@Sgt_Mac_1 yes :( as i said a cold and hard life…
@stielli naaah the guy knows who i refer to.
@stielli yes :)
@Sgt_Mac_1 yes they do that in some places also.
@sweden whats the point u r trying to make here?
@sweden but ofcourse i can not proove that these are beggers. IT was a guess…
@sweden well we have a group of beggers working in the area about 50 m from this car. Ive also seen them make breakfast outside the car etc.
@sweden still like 4 ambulances, police and firemen outside.
@gotiskaklubben I might be wrong, it was a guess.
@nashu they had the Romanian flag on the car.
Home at last after a long day. Looks out of my window = pharmacy robbed! http://t.co/oeCWKcBQrm
@gotiskaklubben i mean that it must be a hard life.
On my way home I pass some beggers from Romania. Must be a hard and cold living. http://t.co/GEqAxwAwwH
@SingingSupper Swedish Kronor
@08sektionen that tweet was from last weeks swede not from me.
Daniel Norén is an old schoolmates son and a great singer from my old hometown Hallstavik.
Do sign him up!
@fthyldz7 me to :)
Now time to work on the annual report!
@StuartBonar well child allowance has more then dubbled in real value over these 66 years while milk has not.
When child allowance was introduced back in 1948 you could buy 65l milk for it.
Today u can buy approx 120l milk for it.
If u like milk!
Now I’m in the next meeting after a short break in which we got to
”Stretch our bones”
(Old Swedish preverb)
Stand up board meeting… http://t.co/WrRo7DLSlH
@kollarp even if u r the king!
Child- allowance is 1 050 SEK/child/month but it has decreased in purchasing power the last 8 years.
Soon meeting with board of directors for ”families with children” at the Swedish social Insurance Agency.
@Vassaste_Kniven yes nowadays
@ben_turner we have incomerelated benefits too. This transfer creates no stigma and increases the will to pay taxes. Everyone gets something
@Vassaste_Kniven a-kassa should perhapes follow income development instead?
@ben_turner everyone gets the same amount depending on how many children you got. More children = more money!
Today: carpenters wake me up – repainting at home, off to work, American radio intervju, workmeeting now lunch – chicken/rice/greencurry.
@Vassaste_Kniven i can show u later today.
Tomorrow 1 million families in Sweden will get approx. 2 billion SEK just for the fact that they have children.
Children are our future!
@fressyren well yes you could say that! We transfer money from families without children to families with children.
@syawal yes i will!
@tmnuotio its approx 100 euro per child a month!
Expenses for christmas and new year makes parents extra poor this month. Tomorrow comes salvation, child allowance!
Hi I’m @sweden this week. Welcome to the poorest day of the year for families with children in Sweden.
Salvation will come tomorrow!
