Childcare costs are parents’ responsibility

Moan at the Independent after a whiny morning’s news piece about how the state isn’t helping people with young children enough:

Sirs,

So the rising cost of childcare is hitting some families with young children hard. Perhaps they should have thought of that before breeding?

If childcare costs going up by twenty pounds a week is blowing their budgets then they had far too little financial headroom to even contemplate the responsibility of bringing even more people into the world.

If people can’t afford children, they shouldn’t have them. It is not the state’s responsibility to reward them for their selfishness.
