 What is wrong with the ones you've seen?  They've appeared to be pretty accurate to me (and my kids are now grown).

I just did this one and I think it's pretty realistic. Maybe just a tad on the low side...

OK, that was the one I thought was too low. But it was only about $3K less than what I spend.

upper middle and higher spend way more than that.  It takes money to raise a child properly, that is why people should only have what they can afford.

Well then it was about right on. Especially since its an average and child care varies depending where you live.
For you it was off my 3,000 a year
Which is 250 a month or 83 a per kid per a month.

Some will pay less and say it should cost more averaging the cost out ;)

according to this, we spend around 35k a year, sounds about right.
