  • Gabon's 'invisible' children: No birth certificate means no school

    Children whose births were never officially declared are known as "ghosts" or "invisible" children. It's an administrative irregularity with far-reaching consequences: millions of African children are excluded from the education system simply for not having a birth certificate. In Gabon, the government estimates that 7,400 children were missing the precious document in 2018, often because of their parents' ignorance of the administrative procedure after the birth of their child.

  • Even Financial Planners Say They Missed These Hidden Costs Of Parenthood

    Financial planners do know quite a bit about money, generally speaking. But even they get surprised sometimes by unexpected costs. And according to Business Insider, financial planners say first-time parenthood is a minefield for such unexpected financial demands. To begin with, just giving birth is an expensive practice. For a woman with insurance, the average birth costs $10,808 without any complications. Once baby arrives, your food bill will go up. A lot. Formula is expensive, especially if baby has special dietary needs. Kiddie meals at restaurants aren't that cheap, either. And teen boys are walking refrigerator-inhalers! And public school isn't really free. School supplies, books, uniforms, sports equipment--the list is endless. Keeping kids engaged and learning after school isn't free, either. Lessons, scouting, clubs, summer camps, family vacations all cost a very pretty penny! Finally, medical care and daycare costs for children can drive parents to distraction. You've been warned!
