Many people think otherwise that a child is an extra plate of soup, so long as it is healthy, and the rest will follow. But there are those (among them, and I), who believe that the cost of children will be considerable and it is pointless to deny it.
Baby food is not just something from an adult table, but high-quality and healthy food. Agree, to feed the kids with fried potatoes and herring is not quite reasonable.
It is necessary to provide the child with a varied and balanced diet, and not soups from bouillon cubes, for example. That is why you will need funds to buy products, fruits and vegetables.
This also includes clothes with toys. And this is not about Dior bodysuits, but about a wardrobe that corresponds to the season, clothes in which the child will be warm in the winter, dry in the autumn and comfortable in any weather.
With toys a similar situation. If you can still cope with the baby on your own – do-it-yourself entertainment, then with age the needs of children grow. And it is unlikely to be able to knit a typewriter or sew a Barbie doll. I will not even talk about current prices for toys, you already know everything.
Fine, if a child does not get sick, but such miracles, alas, does not happen. And now the prices in pharmacies are such that the usual OCR costs up to more than one hundred, or even a thousand, you will agree.
We have a relatively free medicine, but there are additional expenses here – these are procedures (massages, physical procedures, ultrasound and others), and the reception of narrow specialists, and additional analyzes.
Now it’s difficult to get into a regular state kindergarten without a compulsory voluntary charitable contribution, and I understand them perfectly, because there is absolutely no funding for preschool institutions.
And this is only the beginning, then will begin gifts, photo albums, extra classes and clubs, preparation for school, school uniform and so on. You can continue indefinitely. In addition, I want to think about the prospects – a good higher education for the child.
Maybe someone thinks differently, but I believe that children are expensive. And it is even in the situation when the child is healthy and not sick often. I want to give my daughter a maximum, not a minimum – and this is not only love and upbringing, but also material values.
Maybe someone is happy and vsemer in a one-room apartment, but I want for my child a separate and comfortable bed, and ideally – my room. I do not want in the store to choose between apples for a daughter or tights for myself.
The minimum needs are different for everyone, of course, but there are cases when the quality of life depends on the number of children in a family. It is easier when the children are still small – the clothes are inherited, they eat a little, they play with common toys, it seems that everything is budget and nice.
But then, after all, the needs increase – my daughter wants a new dress, a son needs a new phone, and you want perfume. I have a friend who, in order to save the eldest son on the phone, sews the younger daughters with her own hands on diapers. She tries to talk about the dangers of store diapers, but I know the reason for such savings.
Do you think children are expensive or money in this case can not be?
