I agree with your opinion. I want to bear two kids,twins girls.I don't know why i love girls so much maybe they are so cute and pretty. Yeah,we have to take great responsibility on our children.It is great if we can offer our children whatever they want.So now we have to study or work harder and harder in order to give our children a bright future. Come on,be confident towards your future life.

I love to have 2 or three children preferably a boy and a girl or two girls and a boy. Coming from a large family I felt how hard it is to have many siblings and also since we are not really rich it was very hard for our mother to raise us. Good thing though three of us are working now so my mother doesn't really have to worry that much anymore.

I only plan to have two kids after I get married. I always think it's not easy to take care of kids. There are so many aspects we need to look into,from very basic things like food,education,materials,living and so forth. We of course want to provide the best things to our kids,so the best choice is not to have too many kids. The responsibility is too heavy.

At first we wanted to have four kids. With he high cost of living nowadays, I think we reduced it down to just two kids. I already have a two year old daughter. Hopefully, in the future it will be a boy so that I feel complete already. . When I think about the cost of raising a child and sending them to school, start getting the shivers. Times right now are really hard. I already fear what will happen to my children's children.

Of course, I want to have a kids.. If ever I will be given a chance to have kids then I am planning to have 2 one girl and one boy.. 2 is enough already because in our life todays it is really difficult to raised children... You need to plan well your budgets because there are many responsibilities in bearing a children... Being a parent is very hard especially being a mother because you need to know your priorities and need to sacrifice many things.. But for now, I am not yet ready to become a mother/parent...I will still enjoy first being single and having no big responsibilities... Maybe, about 5 more years I can say that I am ready if ever I have a steady and good job and a husband who is responsible also... Happy posting!

hi friend,i want 3 kids as my parents.i have 2 sisters.and i am the only boy.BUt after i married,i want to have 3 kids too.two boys and one girl.and i will try my best to teach them well.I will teach them foreign language as well as the mother's language when they are one year old,and when they are five years old,i will make them into the SHAO LIN temple to learn the martial arts.I think it is helpful to them to keep a healthy body and practise their willpower.This is useful to them in the future.And when they grow up,one will become a lawer, one will become a politician,one will become a doctor.... It is my dream WOW...hehe

I have 2 now but I wouldn't mind 3 as long as it doesn't take much away from the 2 I already have. So since the world is as it is today with the economy and everything I probably won't have another one but we will see.

I married last year, so still won't get any child yet. I want to have four children, two boys and two girls. Those are enough for me. If can't, I thinks at least must two children. Because my parents just have me one child only. I was feeling alone since I am a child. So, I don't want my child is same like me.

Hi shirleylily, I have two brothers and a sister so my parents have four children and this is what you envy. But I am rather sad that I have only a kid. I totally agree with you that the only child in a family is quite lonely as he doesn't have any playmate to play with at home during his childhood. When grown up he doesn't have any sibling to share his feeling and to solve any problem he comes across. Anyhow I am glad that you have found your loved one and had got married last year. Nowadays I believe you won't feel lonely anymore as your partner would share everything with you. With best wishes.

I love to have two kids. Living now is very difficult we are so affected about economic crisis, I never dream to have many numbers of kids maybe it is depend upon the situation if you can raise them in a good life. Thickenss of population is a big deal today I really want to have a policy in our country regarding about the number of kids that a couple should have. Maybe it is better to have a two child policy, the small number of family the better life they could have.

I am fond of one child for my future family. In China ,there is politics---family planning . What's more I don't have enough money to araise child more than one ,althought I love children who only need to laugh to his/her life . In my opinion, children will take away my love from my wife ,maybe this is too selfish ,but it is a verity .

Yeah heart4u, nowadays to raise a kid is not as easy as in those earlier days. We need much money, time and effort to bring up a kid. If a kid is not given properly care, he might become a problem child. When grown up he will bring a lot of problem to the family and society as well. So I think to be responsible parents, they must sacrifice much time to take care of their kids. It’s the duty of the parents to cultivate the kids but not to push to the school or other people. For me I think it is nice to have two kids in a family, so that besides the parents, they still could have someone to be their companion at home. But I feel rather sad that I have only a single son. posting and have a nice day.

i think maybe 2 kids is better.So the kid can help each other,and will not alone. But,in fact,i think one kid is enough.Now our life is hard , we face many problems,bear the heavy pressure.

I already have one child and I will take as many gd will give me. I know what you mean , the world today is very scary. All the prices are going up and you think how to support your family. It just gets harder and harder by the day. However, after having one child and seeing he joys and challenges one brings its all worth it. I am the only child and so is my husband. I definitely do not want to see my daughter growing up without a sibling the way we did. I for sure want at least one more which wold make 2.

I would like three children. I would like two girls (Madison & Amber) and one boy (haven't really thought of a boy name lol). At the least, I want two children. I wouldn't want to have one spoiled child. I think that two children would be ideal in order to avoid the "middle child" syndrome. However, I would really prefer to have three as I already stated. I want to have them young, but not now (I'm 23 and my life needs to be in order first).

I want two kids because many family events revolve around 4 people and it makes the family just seem more balanced. Rollercoasters seat 4 people in a row, restaurant booths seat 4, cars seat 4 (comfortably) and many other situations seem to favor families of 4. Also with the bleak future of the American economy I do not know if its possible to afford more kids. Of course in the case that I end up with more kids I will still care for and love them regardless
