Today’s kids are involved in many activities from Cub Scouts and Girl Scouts to sports and traveling teams. As a parent, one often must maintain a balance between involving your child and watching him grow physically and emotionally through his involvement in sports and your own bottom line. Kids’ extracurricular activities can be expensive—inevitably, they cost more than you thought they cost when you signed up your kids.
If your child is contemplating a new extracurricular activity, here are some ways to determine exactly how much you will pay.
If your budget is tight or if you have a child who is involved in multiple activities (or more than one child involved in activities), paying for each of their activities can be expensive. To decide how many you can comfortably pay for, it is important to determine ALL of the expenses involved before signing up. With some detective work and some assumptions about non-stated fees, such as a gift for the teacher, you can make an informed decision.
