Do you find yourself in a situation where you are expecting a baby on the way & having to deal with the stress of dealing with debts or struggling financially?
With the cost of a Scot’s child costing on average £84,000 until they are 11 years old (reported by www.scotsman.com – https://www.scotsman.com/business/cost-of-raising-scots-child-to-age-11-now-84k-1-3905054), meaning the average yearly cost for a child in Scotland adding up to just under £8,000!
This can add pressure or stress in any household with debt around, as the priority will be to concentrate on supporting your new child (or maybe more!) with costs arising from new furniture, clothes, nappies, child care costs & more food!
As debt will then not be a major priority, if things are tight then generally we find people in Scotland in this situation will stop paying agreed amounts back towards debt or get in more debt to keep above water.
If this is the case simply avoiding the debts can only add more stress, as burying your head in the sand can then lead to mental health issues etc… Click here to find out what are the consequences of avoiding debt.
