i only preefer 1 or two..that i know i can raise easily...you dont need to worry much if ur earnings are enough for the whole family...you will only have little to feed and support..and of course you can focus better and have more time with the kids if there are only two of them..

I will probably stop at 2 kids. Right now I have 1 and she is 18 months old. We have thought about just keeping it down to just her. But I would like for her to have a little brother or sister. I was an only child until I was 12 so I know it can get lonely. But I also don't want to wait and have a big age gap between kids. I would like for them to be about 2-4 years apart so they can still be close.

I would like to have two kids, but I'm not opposed to having three kids. I want to have more than one because my sister and I were really close growing up and I don't know what I would do without her, so I want my kids to have that experience too. I think I wouldn't mind having a big family, but I don't know if that would be possible financially for us, so I would rather have a smaller family and be able to provide for the kids better.

Well I want at least five for sure as I have five already :) Sometimes I think I might like to have another one but my husband feels we have enough and my health would not allow us to have anymore right now . It is true that with only a couple of children it would be easier to focus on only a couple but if you are willing to take the time you will always find a way to manage even in a big household such as ours . I always wanted children and before I had any , I thought I only wanted two but when I had my children I knew I wanted more as I have never experienced more joy in my life as I did with each of my children . They are my world and they bring me happiness that cannot be shared by any other experience in life .

My wife and I would prefer having 3 kids only.For now we had 2 kids already and we will be planning to have another one in 4 years time.Yes, I agree with you that having lesser number of kids means having a more time to spend with our family.

i prefer to have only two.. becoz if we will have only one then the child will be very alone and lonely.. so it is better to have only two...if we decide to have more than 2 it is not possible becoz as you know today india condition, the prices have been increasing day by day and it will be very difficult to give fully satisfaction to our children.. so it is good to have 2 so that we can give fully attention and satisfy their needs fully...

I do want kids only three of four,two girls and two boys also.Because if you have a big family it will be a happy family but i think it depends on how you handle it.And if i am financially stable and my husband also we can make 5 and above kids.

I want 2 more...I have 2 little ones now and would love two more but my husband doesnt see it the same way. I sometimes want to keep it as it is but I always wanted a bigger family and love having little babies.

I really like to have a big family but I don't think our country's economy could allow us to have a big family. I was 6th of Eight children. I guess I would like to have around 3 or four. I don't like to have only one because then he/she wouldn't have anyone to play with and if there's only two I have to worry about sibling rivalry and usually, just two siblings usually don't get along.
