Several mothers I met said, “I become depressed when my children do not recover from a cold quickly, blaming it on the poor care I take of my children.” ile örnek cümleler göster.
A: The way you've used "blaming" doesn't work in first-person. It'd sound more natural if you broke it up into two sentences, or, if you wanted to keep it in one sentence, use punctuation to separate the clauses. For example:

"I become depressed when my children do not recover from a cold quickly—I blame myself for not taking good enough care of them."

"...the poor care I take of my children" also sounded a bit awkward, so I changed it in the sentence above.

“a fair income”
and
“a fair amount of income”
have the same meaning and nuance, sound natural, and they are interchangeable.

Could you please tell me?
A: @WaveL No problem.

"a fair income"

This has two meanings: a literal meaning (reasonable, correct income) and a colloquial meaning, the same as colloquial 'decent', etc. And that meaning is 'good'.

So the context should tell you if the speaker means OK, or good. In writing it would usually be the literal meaning (because there are no clues from the speaker).

"a fair amount of income"

This seems much more like the colloquial meaning, so the speaker is impressed by the amount.
Q: ‎What does the following audio clip say?
The situation:
My bike can hold a smartphone.I often use my smartphone riding the bike.
A:
Needless to say, cars rarely appear on the road. (?)
