I remember my friend complaining about his daughter and how much she is costing him.
He elaborated by saying how much he has spent everytime he pays for school transfer fees (she has been switching schools). He continued on how much he has to pay for new school uniforms, her new mobile phone, her clothers, her allowance and domestic airline tickets cancelled due to her ever changing mind.
In my view children are never a cost to a parent. To some extent it is a duty of the parents to spend for their children until they are ready to be independent. You just don’t make babies and complain about how expensive they cost when they are growing up.
On the other hand, some children are so obnoxious they really do not care of their parents. Call it downright selfishness.
