The family that I grew up in was five members at our largest, which was for eight years. It was myself, my brother and sister and my mom and dad. However, my father passed away when I was fourteen years old and my sister was eight years old so there was only the four of us. Now that I'm a mother with a family of my own, there are four of us, it is my daughter and son, my husband and myself.

Hi, I guess I am from a small family. My parents has 4 children and I am the youngest in my family. I have one eldest sister and two eldest brothers. As for I myself, I have married and I am definitely has a small family too. I only have one child with me. I prefer to have a simple small family,at least less problem to occur.

My family includes myself, my 14 month old baby daughter, my disabled 3 year olds son, and my teenage son. My mom lives in a bungalow in an area nearby. My sister lives in a house in the same area as me. I can walk to her house in five minuets. My sister lives with her husband, her two sons and two daughters. It is lovely that my family all live close together. Five years ago I lived in a village, my mom lived in the place I grew up and my sister lived half an hour drive away from my mom. In those days I lived one and a half hours from my sister and two hours from my mom.

I come from a family of four children. In my household, I have two children of my own. When i was younger I wished i had a bigger family. There would be more joy and love to share. I am happy and fortunate to have the family i have.

I've always wanted to have brothers and sisters, I was an only child for about 9 years before my two sisters were born. I know how lonely it was, having no siblings to play with. Now that I have my own family, I know now how hard it is for parents to raise kids, and a lot harder if you're the only parent who's with them everyday.

My family is big! i have 10 siblings actually 14. But the 4 of them had gone already. I don't like having family though having a big family is wonderful. It is a happy family. The bad side of it if the parents cannot support it.. and sad to say I belong to that kind. It's so hard that they can't even sent you to best schools, the daily basic needs are not met. I myself experienced to work at very young age. I'm so glad now I'm grown up, by the grace of God.I have made choice to make my own family of 3 kids.. I can provide what they need... Besides it is too hard nowadays to raise a big family.

I have a family that's pretty much the average size when it comes to american families. I have two younger brothers, so with me and our parents, that makes five. We also have a little teacup chiuaua, but unlike some people I don't count pets into immediate family. I love the size of my family, but I often do feel bad for my mom, since she is constantly surrounded by four boys haha.
