Having a child should be one of the happiest moments in any persons life. It is also one of the scariest and nerve wracking. The moment that child is born you are fully responsible for not just your own life but also the life of a new born person that you will help mold into the best person they can be.
In all of the commotion and joy of bringing a new life into the world you are also faced with some harsh realities. You have to think of the cost of childcare, school supplies, clothes, buying their first car, starting a college fund, and so on.
One thing you may not think of is the fact that as soon as that child is issued a social security number they instantly become a possible victim for identity theft and if a child’s identity is stolen it could be much much worse than having your own taken. Children’s Social Security numbers are 51 times more likely to be stolen than an adult’s.
