I Guess This is Where We Make a Dent in 200K
According to The Guardian it costs 200K sterling to raise a child to 21. Until now DS has not been an expensive child. Admittedly, I found childcare a little excessive especially as we didn’t have family around to give us a break. However, DS was not a child who needed a lot of stuff and he was happy with hand me downs.
We are now at the dawning of adolescence and it has begun! Sneekers, phones, outings with friends, clubs and music lessons. Ouch! I guess this is where we make a dent in 200K.
