How Much Damage Can A 6-Year-Old Boy Do Over 10 Years?

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin. Raising kids is expensive, especially if your kid is a spiky-haired rapscallion who runs around with a tiger sidekick named Hobbes.

In total, Calvin caused nearly $16,000 worth of damage over 10 years.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Really, that's it?

MARTIN: No estimates on how many related trips to the emergency room. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
