We let our children decide for themselves if they want to make their Communion, Confirmation etc and they know if they want to they need to go to classes each week after school, so it is a big commitment. Both of them have decided that they definitely want to do it so we need to pay for it.
Its our 11 year old son and 7 year old daughter who are due to start Catholic classes next week in preparation for their Communion and Confirmation.
Normally they start these classes in October - which gives us parents a chance to get all the other stuff paid for - but this year, they are starting the classes on 16th Sep and we have to pay €70 each per child for religion and €100 each per child for the homework club that they have to go to before the classes. So its going to cost us €340 to pay for their religion classes!!
I think its really unfair that this is due to paid on September when we are still recovering from paying everything else that is school related.
It was my birthday last week and we never even went out for so much a drink because everything is being spent on the kids this month. I don't mind too much really about the birthday but I just feel these Religion costs are a bit too much of an expense in September.
Just fed up with paying so much for back to school and now Religion classes on top of it. So skint.....
