However, it seems a little ridiculous depending on the $. Reasonable people should agree to something in-between. Some extra CS for a 1 year period (not per table) AND a lump sum put into trust for the childs future. This however would require 2 reasonable people which is often not the case in family court....

Yeah, RESP or other instrument for the kids is the way to go, some parents just need to get educated.
