We all know that childcare isn't cheap. But a few stories this week put in perspective just how expensive it is to have children.

The worst impact is on those making minimum wage salaries, but even middle-class families are affected, as this personal story reveals. There are large costs to society, as well.

For many families, childcare means that one parent — usually the woman — drops out of the workforce entirely. The labor force participation rates for women may continue to decline so long if there is no policy or market-place based solution to this problem.
