In this episode, Niall tackles the contentious question: Is It Irresponsible to Have Children You Cannot Afford? As Ireland, like many nations, grapples with declining birth rates, the affordability of raising children emerges as a critical issue. With the average cost of raising a child soaring, many prospective parents face tough choices about family planning.

Drawing from a diverse array of perspectives, callers weigh in on the debate. Some assert that bringing children into the world without financial stability is irresponsible, emphasizing the importance of providing for their basic needs and securing their future opportunities. Others challenge this notion, arguing that parenthood encompasses more than just financial means, and unforeseen circumstances can impact financial stability.

The discussion delves into the complexities of parenthood, exploring the balance between financial readiness and the emotional fulfillment of raising a family. As callers share their personal experiences and beliefs, Niall navigates through the nuanced arguments, highlighting the challenges and ethical considerations at play.

In the wrap-up, Niall reflects on the key insights shared by callers, offering thought-provoking commentary on the broader implications of the issue. With no easy answers, the debate on responsible parenthood continues to provoke introspection and societal dialogue.
