It's without a doubt that raising a child is a special experience, although parenting can feel hard especially when juggling a full-time job. Did you know that the cost of raising a child has continuously risen TWICE over the rate of inflation over the last 12 years?

In 2015 a study found that raising a child from birth to 21 years is around £229,251. The Majority of spend goes towards education and childcare. A breakdown below will help you digest how the figures add up.

This is shocking! Can't cost this much surely!? Cut out the pocket money, holidays. Swap childcare with Grandma! Education seems to cost more every year , feel sorry for the next generation of students.
