Default The Cost of Having Kids

For those of you who are still undecided, this article suggests that it costs roughly AED1.2million to raise one child from birth to 21yo in the UK.

Yeah, those costs seem to assume that the little Darling is going to go to private/ boarding school.

It would also be interesting to see how much an average adult spends on themselves in the same time period.

I love this kind of unreferenced statement of fact.

And how much would it cost in the UAE (and would they get the same level of academic and cultural education assuming the go to top quality schools?)...more I would bet.
