Parents today face diapers, clothing, food, entertainment, education, childcare, allowance and countless other expenses. As parent,I will look at where the family finances to be in one, five or even ten years and will list down all my goals. These goals can be simple as putting savings bank account or college insurances for my child. Our children bring us much joy and responsibility. Taking the time to plan ahead can take some of the stress and worry out of raising them.

Yes you are correct and your estimation is hundred percent right but here in india we lots of parents face this problem and many of them plan only for one kid these daysdue to expencs everywhere.Aswe belong to a middle class family we till now never faced a critical financial problem and after having good financial support only we went for a child and we even planned for his future by depositing some money on behalf of his future studiesand etc...........and every person should save some money in their saving account as to prosper in their difficult times.

hi rapolu_cs, Here in the Philippines,we both have same picture of the problem concerning financial inability that belong to a Class D family, most of that family are having 5 to 10 or more kids. Some of the children in that Class D just graduated in elementary and least expected if they could reach up to high school & college. Good thing for you that you belong to a middle class group and could set a goal for future needs. Thanks and best always, eunixia

I have three financial issues that concerns me the most in regards to being a parent. Number one is affordable healthcare, number to is college savings for both my husband and I and our children, and number three is how we will be able to afford a mortgage within the two next years.
