Saving for your child’s future…how much is enough?

*this is a collaborative post 

As parents we are natural worriers – it comes with the territory. Worrying if the kids are safe, if they are happy, doing well in school, and the list goes on. Added on the worry list is, of course, is money. Kids are expensive! There’s back to school, holidays, new clothes, haircuts and so on throughout the year.

My kids are still young, my oldest is 11. So we are in the middle of little kid expenses. But I hear that the real costs come in when they get older. When it comes time for them to buy a car and or go to college.

I’m a positive thinker and know that the future will be a great place. There really is no point in worrying, as it doesn’t get us anywhere. Be happy now and happiness will follow!
