Last week we told you that the average cost of raising a child from ages 1 to 17 was $ 235,000 which is a 3.5% increase from the year before. The statistics are based on a middle class family and were compiled by the United States Dept of Agriculture.
This figure left a lot of us in shock, so we went out into the community to get your money questions answered. We brought in financial planner Michael Wittenberg of Wittenberg, Priddy, Blankenship Financial Services to help us navigate the situation.
You can contact Michael with your questions at email@example.com and more information can be found at http://yourfinancialfriends.com
