Children are always lovable. I have a boy 3 years old, and I love him. However, my wife and I don't want to have another kid any more. It takes so much to bring a kid, and we have not the ability to bring up one more kid. How many kids do you have? How many kids do you want to have?

i agree! bringing up kids is not easy. it takes a lot of effort, time and money. especially once they start schooling. i want to have two kids. a girl and a boy. just like me and my brother. two because it is important that your kid has somebody to talk to and play with that is within his or her generation. and when something happens (God forbid) to the parents at least they have each other. sibling rivalry may be a big factor but at the end of the day they will always have each other. so it is really important to plan everything out when you have kids. plan first before having one and while they are young. :)

If possible, I would like to have two kids, one boy and one girl. I have a boy already, but I would still like to have a girl. It is only my dream as we are not allowed to have more than one child because of China's one-child policy. Ok, I have to take care of my only son without thinking to have the real desire to have one more, either a girl or a boy.

I don't have kids yet, but I do want to have around 2-4 kids. Hopefully I can have at least one boy and one girl. I wouldn't want to have too many kids because I would want to be able to raise them well, send them to good schools, and provide for all their needs with a little room for their possible wants.

I guess it is enough to have 4 kids. 2 boys and 2 girls.

I love kids and I want to have as many as I could, but unfortunately I do not have rooms for them - a room means, education, food, shelter clothing and upbrining etc. At present I have one and I think that is enough.

as much as i want to have lots and lots of kids, my financial status won't allow me to. i'd want my kids to have a good life so i have to trim it down to 3. i guess i could only send 3 kids to good school if not the best.

I have 3 kids and I agree it is hard. But I wouldn't want just one. I was really glad when I had my second daughter. It gave my oldest daughter someone to play with. They are 7 & 9 now and get along really well. Actually my crazy hubby wants to have another. We also have a 2 1/2 year old son. He is great but it is harder now that I haven't had a baby in the house for 5 years. And my opinion is that boys are different from girls. I am not sure if only having the one child seems like he is demanding a lot of your time. But I know after having my second that got easier. Even having the baby and two older kids they will all play together.

I have two kids. If things had been a bit different I would probably have had 3 or 4 at least. I love children and really enjoyed seeing mine growing up. Of course for that I would need a much bigger income LOL so I stayed at two. One seemed to little and more just wasn't feasible:)

I have four children. I have a 10 year old son, an 8 year old son and a 6 year old daughter with my first husband. I also have a 17 month old daughter with my current husband. I would have loved to have one more baby boy, and it's not as if you can choose the gender anyhow. We are not going to have anymore children for financial reasons.

i want to have 2 kids one boy and one girl with 1 years different so they have a brother or sister to play with. i think that 2 kids is a moderated quantity of children to have because more than this is too many and only 1 kid he will fell alone and will want someone to play with him!!!
