In the U.S., it’s no secret that raising a child can cost a pretty penny.
In 2013, it was estimated that raising a child until the age of 18 can cost parents over $245,000. If you have a family with three or more kids, you’re spending a small fortune just to ensure your children have everything they need. While most parents would prioritize their children over luxury goods, there’s no denying that at $245,000, you could buy a pretty lavish house in most towns across the country.
So how exactly do your prioritize having more children and living in your dream house? One mom is learning the hard way that making that choice isn’t as easy as it seems (especially if you share that decision online).
