Have you ever heard people talk about how expensive having kids is? I’ve seen estimates that state the average parent will spend almost $250,000 to raise ONE child to age 18!! I’m sorry, but that is beyond ridiculous!
Maybe it’s true, maybe it isn’t, and obviously it depends entirely on you and your family’s unique circumstances, values, etc. But personally, I’ve always subscribed to the belief that financial planning and fiscal responsibility aren’t the biggest things to take into consideration before having kids.
