Having a child is never easy.

Raising a child takes up a lot of time, money and energy. Parents must spend time and energy with their child to guide his/her every step. Parents have to provide her kid with protection as well as strict guidance so that he/she will not learn the wrong things or habits. Parents will need to engage in their playing activities so as to build up bonding between them.

As a father, I always make it a point to come back home immediately from work so as to spend time with my daughter. As for my wife, since she is a stay-at-home mother, she is able to take care of and discipline our daughter while I am not around.

Having a child is a long term commitment; parents will need to spend a lot of money during his/her growing process. Milk powder, seeing a doctor, enrichment classes, and insurance are not cheap, and these are just part of the cost. Due to that, I find it very hard to have another child as I might not be able to save enough for my retirement fund. I don’t except the money in CPF will be enough, or my daughter is able to support myself and my wife in the future.

Kids are expensive if we look at them at financial angle.
