Should parents of multiple children pay more in taxes instead of less?

I can't imagine paying more than what I do for daycare on anything the kids ever do after entering public school.

 

$20k+ per year can buy a lot of stuff.

Well the thought is incomes will hopefully be increasing over that time as well so it would essentially free up $3k a month after the theoretical 2 kids.

 

Or I am buying an aston martin :)

 

I thought the same thing.....income did increase exponentially.  My kids just cost me more and more than they used to.

 

Wait until they get into year-round sports.

 

I am forking over about $20k a year just for my three kids to swim on a competetive year-round team.  Coaching fees, travel every month, equipment, etc.  Oldest is pretty damn good and qualifies for state/sectional meets.  His "tech" swim suits are over $300 a pop....and are only good for about 3 meets.

Don't forget that little thing in the future called college tuition.

WTF?! 20k on daycare and $20k on swimming. 

 

edit: My child could cry, scream and beg for me to throw out $2k on an activity and it aint happening. Like you said college tuition comes quick.

don't go throwing common sense into the mix it will throw everything of it's axis.

It's not exactly true though. Older pregnancies still increase the risk (dramatically) for things like downs. We researched it in deciding whether to have a 3rd child.

well

 

I have 2 daycare-aged kids

 

It's a little cheaper than it used to be, but at its peak, I was paying $400 per week with a 2nd child "discount"

 

And I know there are much more expensive daycares out there.

No links yet you believe him.

 

Everything I've read since his post says he is wrong. Women over 35 have more miscarriages and more birth defects.
