Now more and more Chinese families have only one child,so do I .But I really want to have a brother or sister so I woule not been lonely in my childhood.I always asked my mother why I don't have a elder brother maybe I want to be protected and don't need to face somethings alone.So how many children do you have ? do you have a brother or sister?

In my family we are three children. I'm the eldest and I have my younger brother after me and youngest is my sister. It's really good to have brother and sister. It is alot more fun. We had really nice childhood. And mother used to say that when we three never needed friends. We used to play together, sleep together. We hardly communicated to other child. And for me, I think I will have two children as you said one child will be quite lonely.

I have many sister.I think i like to be you.My elder sisters is very fierce with me .I think it is because im not pretty.But they always love my younger sister even she do false thing maybe because since she is kid, she is very cute and pretty untill now.What my false.If you in my side,you will not want to have sister.It is so torture and stress to have sisters like them. I always hope to be born as chinese because chinese only have one child in family.

I have 3 children 2 boys and 1 girl ages 11, 8 and 4. I dont want to have anymore. It's hard work and costs more money to feed and clothe them.

I have 3 kids. I believe this number is not too many to make you crazy with all the noise and expenses, and not too few that they can't enjoy playing all by themselves.

I have three children, and I'm not having anymore!! I had my first when I was only eighteen, after I was married I had my daughter. They are five years apart, my husband wanted one more so I said that was fine as long as we did it right away. Two month later I had my last little boy, and my last two are like best friends!!

at this day and age, it is practical to have only one or two children in the family. the world has not much good to offer the new generation anymore. it is a very much destroyed old world. pollution has got its grip already, global warming is gritting the world with its pangs, the ozone layer has been destroyed causing the breaking in of all types of cancer gripping the populace throughout the world. having children is still an option people are holding on to because it is only the way to ensure the continuance of the human race.

I have 1 son (13 months) and i think i don't plan to have another child :) Even sometimes i think, it would be great if my son have a little brother or sister. But if i remember the time that i will spend to take care of children. I don't think so :) With only 1 son, i don't enough time for myself what if other child wow....no way :) But yeah...i don't know if my son already go to school. Maybe i change my mind. Who knows :) I have 1 little brother.

I have only one younger brother. When I was younger, I used to want to have an elder brother, but I think so far I've been happy being the eldest sister. ;-D Well, I think in the future I want to have one kid first and if I can handle one, I'll think about the second one. My hubby wants us to have two kids so that the first kid won't feel lonely.

Hi there. We have two children and look after loads more, like nieces and nephews or when we feel like it, or when these children want to come and stay, as for having more of our own, nope I think we have a balanced family... I do have brothers and sisters...

I have two little children,the oldest is 3 years old and the youngest is one and a half year old now. Even we already have a girl and a boy, we sometime still think to have another one . But of course not this time. We think in a few years from now, when these two kids already go to school probably will be the good time to have another one. Me my self have3 brothers but no sisters. One big brother and two young brothers who always try to protect me when I was still young. Now I'm married, of course my husband take that responsibility :)
