The High Cost that Comes With Raising a Child

CNN Article: http://money.cnn.com/2017/01/09/pf/cost-of-raising-a-child-2015/index.html 

I never knew that raising a child could be so expensive after reading this article. The cost for raising a child up to age 17 is $233,610. Housing is the most expensive which takes about 29% of the total cost while food comes in second. As children grow older, the expenses get higher because of education, food, and transportation. I was very surprised at this overall cost that is only up to age 17, not including college fees.
