I need to make my own financial way

Your parents may offer to give you all the financial help you need to raise kids if that’s the issue, but you are well within your right to explain that you do not feel comfortable creating a financial burden for the family. Realistically, nobody can predict how much a kid will really cost. How much will college cost in 18 years? Or food or housing? Or a car? You are an adult, and you’d like to fully be financially responsible for you and yours. It’s okay to say that you wouldn’t feel right trying to bring a person into this world who instantly drains the finances of those around you.
