190k to raise kids!

Parents of teens ride waves of expenses - Yahoo! News
Last year, a middle-income family spent an average of $190,980 to feed, house, clothe and entertain a child from birth until age 18, with the preteen and teenage years taking the heaviest toll, according to the U.S. Agriculture Department. The more money a family has, the more it tends to spend on kids.

Don't forget that's average

Here in California, it's easily double or triple of that.
