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."
