ABSTRACT
The article discusses on the increase in costs of raising children in Great Britain. It is believed that raising children has recorded a percentage increase with a total high spending of £180,137. This increase in cost has led households to rely on two incomes to raise their families. According to the author, it is of great importance for families to gain awareness on the cost of rearing children and develop solutions to cope in times of financial difficulties.
