Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

I don't think the question was,

"How much do you pay in child support?"

If you want, you pay...
But, if you need, you pay more!

The wife is a school bus driver so she can take the kid to work with her. She had a job that paid $8,000 a year more, but we were paying $10,000 a year for daycare so she was better off taking a pay cut and taking the kid with her.

It is more cost effective to keep the missus at home with the wee one than pay a daycare.

My kid just goes after school for about an hour and half each day, so I'm only paying $15/week.

Way too much for only two half days a week. The rest of the time we play juggle the schedule so that one of us is always home.

Well, no real out-of-pocket expenses, but how do we factor in the lost wages from one parent staying at home with the kids?
