How much do children cost?
-0-2 when mom is at home on mat leave:
-2-5 when daycare is required:
-5+ school age:
I know it will be a little different for everyone, but I'm looking for an average middle class upbringing (no hockey) for essentials like food, diapers, clothes, activities like swimming lessons etc..
I'm thinking around $10,000 cost per year on the safe side for one child...is that about right? Too high, or too low?
