    Children do not really cost all that much to raise contrary to the apparently popular view.

    It looks as if, if you want your children to have year books, though, it would be a significant expense for parents with several children. I think you just have to keep your youngsters out of the sports programs, music programs, and even do without the yearbook if these will be prohibitive for some parents.

    It sounds hard but these are not necessities, and you do what you have to do.

    Why do people have children if they can't afford them?
