Child Population Dwindles in San Francisco – Yahoo! News

But most families need two or more incomes to keep their homes, and their children spend most of their days being cared for by others.

“We have so many friends who are moving out and say how much easier life has been for them,” Bakstad said. “If we can make it work in the city, we would love to stay. In a way, the jury is out.”

I was just having a conversation about this about an hour ago, and, look, here is an article about it. I would go as far to say that this is happening in the entire Bay Area in general. Young families just can’t afford to live here so they are moving out. I mean, look at me, for example. I would love to have a kid. But I think about the logistics of that and it just ain’t happening as long as I live here. Money is the main reason. Not being able to afford to live in anything bigger than a 1 bedroom apartment. those kinds of things.

I really wonder what this mass exodus is going to do to this area? It really makes me wonder.

  1. Isn’t it crazy? I love the Bay Area and NYC, but who can afford to live there? I mean, unless I have enough $$$ to live comfortably, I’ll stay where I am…like I can afford LA either. Mass exodus wouldn’t do much…there will always be someone to replace those who move out.
