Parenthood can be an extremely happy and amazing experience but for many it can also be an extremely stressful experience. Parenthood can change your life drastically and this is a forever change because once you have a baby, there really is no going back. Before making the decision to become a parent, it is important that you sit down and think about it for as long as it takes to make sure that you are truly ready for the many responsibilities and life changes that come with it.
Expenses associated with parenthood
From the day your baby is born, you will find yourself spending big amounts of money and your daily expenses will usually be more than you would have spent earlier in a week. Babies are extremely expensive. The sad truth is that when everyone around you is forcing you and prodding you to have a baby, they do not explain to you that babies are extremely expensive and many young parents will usually either go in to debt trying to sustain their baby or their baby will not have the nutrition and lifestyle that the baby deserves because they are so expensive to upkeep. Even more alarming is that the expenses never really end and they simply increase as the child grows up. Everything from nursery school to clothing costs a lot of money. In fact, with clothing for your child, what many people will not tell you is that they will not be able to wear the same outfit more than a few months as they are constantly growing which means that you will need to buy your child new clothes, new shoes and new everything every few months.
The best first school for your baby will be a British nursery in Dubai known for its high standard of early education as well as its discipline and general knowledge. However these schools also tend to charge a lot of money and it is always best that you collect enough money for schooling and at least the first three years of your child’s life before you choose to have a baby.
If you and your partner are very social and outgoing people, you will have to be prepared for long weeks and months at home with your baby. You will need to give up on an expensive dinner in exchange for something for your baby or to save money for the babies’ future. You will need to make hundreds of sacrifices every day for your baby and you need to be sure that you are ready for those sacrifices.
