Q. Is Child Benefit enough and what you do spend it on?
Child benefit hasn’t seen any meaningful increase, in line with inflation for years. My 15 year old son wears men’s clothes and is 6’ 1. He takes a size 10 shoe. He’s always been tall, and has big feet. It costs a fortune in clothes - uniform, shoes, football boots. If he outgrows his footwear, I need to find £250 just to cover those costs, and so he can have school appropriate footwear and do PE lessons.
