I always worry about the future. I worry I am a good enough mum, trying to install the right values, and doing the right thing, and importantly. And that we will have enough money to live the life we are accustomed to and that we can give our children the future we want. All of this costs money and times are still tight. However, I still put money away every month towards our children’s future. It’s not a lot, but it’s a start. Do you?
We all know that having children can be expensive and that the average cost to raise a child from birth to 21 is £218, 000. That’s a lot of money, especially when I have three. But, children are priceless and bring so much joy.
This is why I put money away each month for my children in an investment for their future. Whether it will go towards further education, their first house, I don’t know. I do know is I hope whatever amount it is, it gives them a good start to their adult life. Which lets face is a scary enough prospect as a mother.
My oldest wants to be a pro footballer and I hope his dream comes true. My middle boy Tyler would like to play football too, but I think he’ll be a little comedian. Baby girl, a dancer. Whatever they want to be I will be there to support them and by investing now, I can help grow a fund for their future.
