Creative parenting expert, Nikki Bush, chats about the financial and social distractions associated with Matric Dances.

In the parenting feature, creative parenting expert, Nikki Bush chats to #WeekendBreakfast host Phemelo Motene about the financial, and social issues surrounding Matric Dances.

Bush says that preparing for a Matric Dances can be extremely distracting.

There's so much attached to matric dances from the overwhelming amount of money it costs these days.

Bush says that girls tend to be more expensive than boys.

Boys generally hire the car but the girls need to go for makeup rehearsals, do their nails, and get outfits for the actual Matric Dance, and the after party adds Bush.

Bush says that matric dance dresses range in price.

If you hire a dress, it can be about R900. If you go buy a dress, it can be anything from R1800. I have heard parents spending R10 000 - R15 000 for a dress.
