16 Worst Places to Raise a Family

Raising children is both a privilege and a challenge, and one that everyone wants to succeed at. When it comes to bringing up happy, healthy kids, some places in the world are more suitable than others. Here are 16 cities across the globe where raising children is an even more challenging task than usual.

Miami, Florida

While hot and sunny Miami might sound like a blast, it’s not really ideal if you’ve got little ones to look after. One study ranked Miami just below Detroit in terms of family livability, measuring factors like the quality of schools and healthcare, the number of playgrounds per capita and housing costs. Sadly, the rest of the state didn’t fare much better as 5 out of the 10 worst cities named were also located in Florida.
