How many children do you want? A lot of people think that two is a good number, and that it`s not harder to have two children than one because they keep eachother enterntained. How many children do you want or do you have? Do you want more. Is there anyone with more than two children, do you have a hard time keeping up?

i have heard that a girl likes to have a sister so i would opt for a third child with an expectation that she is a girl :)

I honestly don't have any. My partner and I never wanted any. I know some people find that strange, but we discussed it, and it wasn't right for either of us. From my friends, I think two is a good number - any more becomes too expensive, and too difficult to give each child the individual help, time, and attention they may need.

I'm happy for you and your partner that you had the guts to listen to your own needs. I know for sure that you'll have more time for eachother and more money for traveling and nice dinners. Good for you.

I have one son so far and I want more children! I realize that won't be easy, but I think one child will be alone and it will be uneasy to bring him up as a non-selfish person. So I dream of having more children. Moreover, I enjoy being a mom.

i have none now because I am not ready at this point in my life. I want 3 children someday, I know in my heart that is the perfect number for *me* It's different for everyone, we're not all cookie cutter people so the number of children we want is a personal thing and there's no "perfect" number.

I have just the one child, a son and he keeps me on my toes. Unfortunately i have not been blessed with anymore, but if and when that happens, I would like at least one more - a little girl. My sister has four kids and their ages range from 11 yrs, 8 yrs, 4 yrs and 2 yrs. I don't know how she does it sometimes but somehow she manages. I don't think i could cope with four children!

I donot have any children but have future plan for only one.Two children now a days is very expensive.One children so that I can take care of him or her properly.Entertainment of my child will depend on me.More than two children is out of question.

I'm glad that you have just as many children as you want! Is it boys or girls or one of each?
