Kids say - boys vs. girls

Tuesday, 28 June 2016

At LV= we know that raising a child is something one can never quite be prepared for.

According to our latest ‘Cost of a Child’ research, the current average cost of a child from birth to age 21 in the UK is £231,843!


Question on screen: what’s the difference between girls & boys?

Girls are shorter than boys and boys are better at football than girls.

They don’t like each other.

They like flowers and boys like superheroes.

Some girls are quite mean.

So are some boys!

Boys like boy games and girls like girl games. A girl game is like a fairy game and a boys game is a dragon game.

They don’t like pink and they don’t like blue.

I like blue!

And I like blue!

Girls have long hair and boys don’t.

Everybody’s personality is different whether they’re a boy or a girl, everybody’s personality is different and there’s loads of personalities.

Outside of the playground, the only real differences between girls and boys are biological – so when it comes to raising a child, there is little or no differentiation. From ballet shoes to football boots, our little darlings can cost a fortune.

Our 13th annual ‘Cost of a Child’ research' shows that the average cost of raising a child in the UK in 2016 is £231,843 … No matter if they are a boy or a girl.

We’ve separated the cost of raising a child into key categories including; Childcare, Education, Clothing and Recreation. These costs are unavoidable and the Cost of Raising a Child research is a great insight into how to financially prepare to raise your son or daughter to ensure you can enjoy every step without worry.

Although there are no differences between girls and boys, Mum’s word is still final …right?
