it cost about US$300 a year to feed a BRAT, clothes, shoes cost around US$50 a year in China.

books can be had in a library, schooling is free, if the brat is smart - even university is free, otherwise some artisan master will take him or her as an apprentice.

what's the big deal......

Why would you pay to raise other kids and not your own?
