Child support grants should be increased to R1050 because children needs are costly.(opinion)

As a result, the social relief award should be increased to R1050, which would offer enough money for both parents and their children, who are both in need of financial assistance since they are unemployed. It's been said that we're in the midst of the third wave right now.

Fearing getting the virus, a lot of parents have chosen to stay at home rather than go to work, especially given the current status of the outbreak and predictions that the third wave may be on the way.

Because a newborn baby grows so quickly, you'll need to buy medicine, diapers, milk, clothes, and other basics every two months at the very least. As a result, President Cyril Ramaphosa should devise a strategy and discuss with Sassa about boosting child support grants to R1050 per month, given the high cost of raising children. That is precisely what I expect will happen in the future. People nowadays have children because they require more or sufficient funds to keep their families afloat financially or otherwise. It would be sufficient if it could be decreased to R1050, and people would be less tempted to have children.
