“It’s like a second mortgage, isn’t it?” You’ll often hear parents of young children say about their monthly child care bills. Well it is and it isn’t. It’s certainly a hefty chunk of change, but you’re not paying it for 30 years’ guts. That’s the good news. The bad news is that you can’t own a brick and mortar house after that. No, instead you get the school book list, the uniform list, the after-school care bill. Having children is more expensive than anyone will ever tell you.

And yet I wasn’t prepared for the moment when an interviewee casually added up her own childcare bill over the years, for three children. “I probably paid about 80,000 for childminders,” she estimated.
