Mother-of-three Sonya Sheeba was disappointed that dental and medication rebates for children were not delivered in the federal budget.
Mrs Sheeba, of Metford, said money to help with the cost of raising children was essential because families struggled with the cost of living.
“I’m definitely disappointed because dental treatments and medication costs are expensive and it would have been nice to get some help with that,” she said.
Mrs Sheeba was pleased with the changes to the education tax refund, which would give her money to equip her children for school.
She was also happy with the government’s decision to give parents of school children aged 16 to 19 an extra $80 a week, and tax cuts for people earning under $80,000.
Mrs Sheeba said the government would win next year’s election if they delivered and maintained their promised $1.5 billion surplus.
“It’s important to have the budget in surplus and I don’t think they should wait to achieve that,” she said.
“A lot of people are sceptical of the government because of all of the spending they have been doing, but if they keep their promise of the surplus I think they will win.”
