Survey Reveals That Daughters Are More Expensive Than Sons
A new survey has revealed that parents believe that they spend more money on their daughters than their sons.
The study, conducted by Sainsbury’s Bank and reported on by Yahoo!, involved more than 2,000 people living in the UK.
They were asked to estimate the cost of raising their kids and many said that little girls are more expensive than little boys. In fact, they were approximately £600 (€700) a year more expensive.
Parents revealed that they spent around £5767 (€6757) on their daughters, compared to £5475 (€6415) on their sons, up to the age of five.
With teenage girls (aged 14-18), parents said they spent around £7747 (€9077) on girls, compared to £7172 (€8404) on boys.
