STAY-at-home parents were the losers from the 2015 budget and mums and dads are not happy.
In a bid to motivate new mothers to return to the workforce, stay-at-home parents will lose access to child care rebates.
Although there will still be protection for low-income earners, families with an income of more than $65,000 a year will no longer be eligible for childcare assistance.
Yarraman mother of two Helen Wyvill said spending time with her kids while they were young was her first priority.
"I went back to work when my first was two years old, but now with my second I want to be at home until they're old enough to go to school," Ms Wyvill said.
Ellesmere father of two Harley Cash said it was impractical to try and force parents with young children to re-join the workforce.
"I want to go to work but they're (the kids) more important," he said.
"Child care fees are so expensive so I'm also better off financially if I stay at home with them."
Kingaroy's Codie North said her two-year-old son screamed for her when she left him.
But not all stay-at-home parents think the change is a bad thing.
Mother of six Casey Wilson said working parents were more deserving of child care benefits.
Although a stay-at-home mum herself, she said three of her sisters worked and she sympathised with their struggles.
"I just think they deserve it more," she said.
