David Disley-Jones works for the Learning and Skills Council. He lives in Kings Heath, Birmingham, with his wife Jenny and their children Molly, five and Samuel, 18 months.
He said although there were certain announcements in the Budget he was pleased to see, for the most part he did not expect to see much change to his family's life and finances.
Mr Disley-Jones said: "There doesn't seem to be a lot in there for the average middle-income family, not a lot of change. I suppose the Chancellor's responsibility is to show stability and the reliability of the British economy at a time of global crisis."
As a recent house buyer, Mr Disley-Jones said the stress he had gone through meant he was keen to see action taken to improve the stagnant market and make fixed rate mortgages more attainable.
He said: "We moved house late last year, and that meant an increase in our mortgage. We are on a fixed-rate mortgage, but only for two or three years.
"When we experienced the housing market last year, it just seemed really flat. We didn't have a lot of people wanting to buy our house which made things a lot more difficult. The chance to have a long term fixed rate mortgage would take a lot of the stress out of the whole process, especially for first-time buyers, which in turn has got to be good for the whole market.
"We're already on the property ladder, but altruistically speaking, it's best for everyone to encourage the market like this."
He said the one thing that really pleased him, both as a parent and as a person, was the Chancellor's focus on green issues and tackling global warming, although he was keen to see words backed by action.
"As a parent, the main thing is any measures that will be in the interests of your children, so in that respect I'm in favour both of incentives for people to buy greener cars, and also the plans for improvement to public transport.
"What concerns me is politicians making headline announcements which don't turn into reality."
He also welcomed the Chancellor's moves to increase child benefit and increase tax credits for families with children, although he said it would have little impact on himself and other middle-income families.
And he added: "As a stressed parent I'm concerned about the rise in alcohol duty, it's overly punitive.
"It won't cure binge drinking, it just punishes people who want to go out for a few beers."
