I grew up in a lage family. i had cousins and brothers so we played together and had really nice time. Some people don't like crowded families. What do you wish for your your children? Should they grow up in a large family or a smaller one? How many children do you think to have?

I guess I would like to have 2 kids, 1 girl and 1 boy. The elder one would be the boy and he would be like a big brother and he could protect his little sister. Well I am kinda like the only child because I have three "half-siblings".. both of my parents married twice. my three siblings are not really like other siblings because we dont live together and we are not really that close..i guess I dont really know having siblings feels like, so i probably should have more than one kid.

if i were to decide, i would like to have 2 or 3 kids. but by the time you're married, you can't decide alone because you've got a husband whose opinion needs to be heard. it's 50-50 and fair decision making as much as possible and the financial status of the marriage should also be considered. i'm the 5th child in the family. life was difficult but it did us well. we've worked hard to become what we are now. i'll make sure that i could give the needs of my kids and that means "all their needs". i'll make it a point not to spoil them and we should have time for bonding as a family.

Before I had my children I hoped I would have a girl and then a boy. I thought two children, one of each gender would be ideal. I was even more lucky than that because I had two son and a daughter. I have a 14 year old son, a 2 and a half year old son and a 6 month old daughter. My younger son is disabled. He is unable to walk because of his spina bifida. Therefore I wouldn't wish to have another baby. If I did I would be unable to manage until my daughter is walking. My younger son will go into a wheelchair. I love traveling and I can only just afford the plane tickets now my younger son is over two years old. I am happy with having three children.

I have 4 siblings. Both of my parents were from a big family also. A family is all that we can have no matter what the circumstances are. I would want a big family too. Maybe have 5-6 children with 3-5 years interval of course. :)
