THE HIGH COST OF ENTERTAINING THE KIDS

FULL STORY:  Here's another reason to resent your kids for the sweet three-month break they get every summer.  Your WALLET takes a pretty good hit . . .

 

 

According to a new survey, it costs an average of $495 to keep your kid happy and entertained over the summer.

 

 

That includes $319 on toys and activities to keep them occupied while they're not in school.  Plus another $176 to take them with you on trips and vacations.  So it doesn't even include stuff like extra money you have to spend on daycare or babysitters.

 

 

9% of parents said they start saving up for summer at least six months in advance.  And 35% usually end up strapped for cash by August or September.

 

 

Almost two-thirds of parents start planning activities for their kids before summer hits.  But 45% said they're pretty much out of ideas by August.

 

 

The average parent said they suggest 13 different activities a week for their kids over the summer.  And that's still not enough.  On average, kids are bored and don't know what to do by about 1:30 every day.
