The US Department of Agriculture estimates that raising a child cost middle class Americans an average of $233,610 according to USA Today.
That principle does not include the cost of paying for college, which easily drives the number over a quarter of a million dollars.
The report claimed a “child represents a major financial stress”.
That’s a ton of money, but most parents are willing to pay it.
“I would give my life for my kids, let alone worry about how much they cost” a mother told Tastie Fish this afternoon.
