Make sure your daughter knows this, and pays you back:D

You should get that in writing:D

One shouldn't forget one's own cost to the parents though. But I have that covered. Just don't show them the article;)

You need pet insurance for that though. Medical treatments can be expensive;)

For changing nappies - no charge
For getting up in the night to feed and change you - no charge
For caring for you when you were ill - no charge............

Cant remember the real words.

Who said the costs stop at 21? It looks like our 25 YO is going to be getting half of our block to build a home! I know, that the conversion rate means that our cost would be closer to the $400,000.00 mark but that still sounds cheap!

Just think of it as repaying your upkeep back to your own parents;)

That will be costing me 400,000 then.....

Hmmm, I am not sure how they really work this all out.

And what about the emotional/time cost too..

And also the benefits?

In 1961 when my daughter was born it cost $18,000.00 to raise a child to the age of 18. The problem was that I was only making about $2,600.00 a year.confused2
