  1. Ivs got 3 kids under 8. One autistic. My partner is stay at home mum. We get no centrelink cos I earn too much. I coukd afford a million dollar mortgage now. As a plumber I can make good enough money to do all this..but to get a loan for a million dollars to live in a sufficient area for the family is the hard part

  2. I think its more important that kids are born into a supportive and loving family rather than a financially fit. The benefits of 2 loving parents who work together to raise their child is very important. Whether that couple be married, separated or divorced. If the parents get along with each other for the sake of raising the child and that the child knows they are loved. Kids don't care if you own your own home or rent. Buy second hand, make basic family meals, find free stuff to do as a family and love your kids as hard as you can. Nobody has any guarantee that the next 20 years is going to be smooth sailing in any area of life. Have a family when you feel you're ready to be a parent.

  3. There is some common sense required. No way do children cost what these surveys say they do. But, it does take common sense. As parents you need to focus on NEEDS rather than WANTS. Some people have too many kids they then can't provide for because of this (and pretty much all of the points you make). We raised two bio kids and four foster kids (one at a time) on one wage and paid off a house at the same time – and no, it wasn't back when Adam was a boy.

  4. The $8k cost per year is massively understated if you need to have your kids in daycare. My son is nearly 2 and childcare costs are $714/fortnight alone. That's after the government subsidies too.

    We have bought very few clothes and toys as we've simply got hand me downs from my older siblings and friends who's kids have grown up.

  5. MGTOW

    Don’t have kids if you’re a young man.

    If you chose the wrong partner you will be destroyed by the family court/child support system.

    It will destroy you mentally, emotionally and financially. The system is designed to do this.

  6. People should consider moving regional Queensland heaps cheaper to raise family…. move back to Brisbane when finances better both parents working etc…. sometimes need to look outside the box to get ahead… it can be done and it's what my parents did when interest rates were 18%.
    Totally agree kids are not as expensive as media says they are

  7. Some private school I know are charging $250000 per year, 10 years of schooling is 250'0000 just there, plus sports, braces, glasses Nike's, cars later when they are older etc etc the list goes on and on, I think they have underestimated 🙂

  8. I always get weird remarks when I say we'd love 6+, people instantly assume we're in some weird Christian cult out here in the rural area. Nothing like that, we just have heaps of space and love kids, they think we're crazy but we'd rather surround ourselves with kids than iPads and yeezeys.

  9. Unless you want to raise spoiled, privileged brats, they dont actually cost that much. Think simple, for example, State schools, cost free pleasures like the beach, parks, good basic food, clothes from op shops, reading books, basic toys and good disciplined up-bringing . Of course if you want to send little lord fonkliroy to St bottomtooth gramma, its gunna cost you a bomb!
