what do you consider a big family?

How many kids constitutes a big family in your mind? I would say 4 or more.

  • I have four children and am told often that I have a large family. To be honest it's true. I consider any family forced to buy in bulk, drive a vehicle that seats more than 5 people to be large. We buy bulk and drive a mini-van in order to seat all six of us.

  • Personally, I'd say 7 or more, though with some families 1 kid makes it a big family...

  • SO is the oldest of 7-- that's insanely big.

    More than 3 kids because then you can't all ride in the family sedan together. It is hard to seat you at restaurants and the movies.

  • I would say five or more is a big family. I was always told I came from a big family by my friends. I am the fourth of five kids, so i guess I come from a big family.
    I have three boys and people are always implying that I am insane for having three.

  • 30 years ago it would have been 5 or more, but today I think society tends to think 3 or more is a big family. People look at me like I have 2 heads when they see me out with my 3 year old, 20 month old, and my 9 month pregnant belly.
