I think that rwo children is OK. If you have more you may have an economical problem at any time of your life. Because i think that when we are talking about chilren we should have in our mind that you need alot of money for their education, their clothes and much more things.

there is nothing wrong with having as many kids as you want as long as you can love and support them

I am 27 and have 3, I think as many as u can handle support and love . Dont worry what people say this is your life not theres.If your dream is to be a mom then follow your dream . my niece is 22 and she has 2 children, the first pregnancy she has a miscarriage and the 3rd child passed away at 4 months. She is young and doing great and is also i think trying for a little girl. just give them all the same amount of love and support . Forget what people say and live your life for yourself not for them

We planned also 3 kids .... the last one was a double pack .... this brought us to our economic limits, but was worth it .... stay at home with your children, and manage the family-company, it is a wonderful mission in life .... and if you don't have enough money: meanwhile exist many good networkmarketing and work from home opportunities!

I think you are too young for a third one but the choice is yours to make. To me 5 is too many and 4 should be the most

Teddy and Mommy
I think 3 is the perfect number. Of course I am 26 and only on #1, but I want to have 3 as well. I would like 2 of my own, and to maybe adopt a 3rd. Do not let what others say influence you when it comes to something as personal as how many kids you want to have!!

I dnt mean to be rude, but I think that 3 is one too many.....cos the world is already too crowded with humans.

well, you certainly are young for that many, but if they are taken care, you are all happy and healthy******then i'd say it's your business. but please remember to take time for yourself and adult conversation once in a while!

Like everyone else said--it is up to the couple to decide when they have enough kids. When I was 25 I was also pregnant with my 3rd and my family all thought we were nuts. Of course we also had a baby and a toddler at home (they were 2 and 13 months old when the baby was born). Now we have 4 kids and are still considering having a 5th in the future. I was really upset about all the comments and then I talked to my aunt who had 5 herself and she told me to screw them all. She heard the same thing back in the 60s and 70s when she had her kids but she felt so blessed to have each one and I should too. She was the only one that said anything positive about my "large" family.

As long as you are able to give them the attention they deserve, can financially support them without government help, and can keep them clean and healthy, have as many kids as you want. Are you constantly dumping your kids at "everyone"'s house or asking for help from "everyone"? Do you complain about how hard it is to care for the children? Do you feel trapped and helpless? If not, then tell everyone to mind their own business. Being a mom is the best thing that ever happened to me! Sure it is hard work and it means I can't go out and party whenever my friends want me to, but really, that is not what I want to do anyway. I want to give my kids a bath, read to them, comb their hair, play with them and love on them. I would tell these people to define success and exactly what they mean by ruining your life. I define a successful life by how happy my children are.

Me personally I couldn't really do more than 2 I think. But every one is different. I know people that have like 10 kids and they love it. I think that if you can give your children the attention that they deserve then their really isn't such a thing as too many children to you. I have a friend that is 21 years old and she is pregnant with her 3rd and 4th child. A lot of people think that she is ruining her life. And she doesn't look at it that way. She looks at it that she is truly blessed to have so many children and loves it all.

Too many is up to YOU to decide.. personally? I have 4.. and in 3-4 years we will see about the possibility of having a 5th.. if we dont feel like a 5th is a good option at that time.. we will be stopping at 4..^_^ Personally, we are doing great and wonderful with 4 kids.. so I don't see it as too many..

More than 2 children are not desirable.

As long as you are happy and you are able to provide for them what they need I would say ignore what other people say ..
