  • However many fall out the windows because the house can't hold them all in....lol.
    Whatever you decide upon, or whatever God blesses you with, is never too many. :)

  • 19 lol

    I always wanted 4 because my parents had 4 and we had a great time, but I had my twins and the my divorce, so I don't see any more kids coming. But I don't think there's a limit. Personally, I think for kids are just my perfect number. I don't think it's too many though. IDK!!

  • For you? or someone else? Only each individual can answer that for themselves. I have 5. YOU could say that's too many, but that's just your opinion, not a fact. For some people 4 is too many so they stop at 3. I don't care how many kids anyone else has. I want one more. I'm sure some people would say that's "too many" but its not their family so it doesn't matter.

  • I have 16 children and am pregnant with twins. We will have more after the twins are born. We can afford our children and they all have their own rooms. We had to add on to the house many times this last addition we added three more bathrooms and 6 more bedrooms so we have room for 4 more after the twins are born. My husband makes a very good living and I am home with the kids. We hear the snarky remarks from people who have no lives and spend far too much time thinking about us.lol We move on with our day. Our kids are healthy happy and very intelligent. We home school and have 6 private tutors that come in to help the older children. Some people 1 child is more than they can handle for others we will have as many as we can have. I am only 38 so I have plenty of time. I have given birth at home 16 times no c sections or doctors involved. The twins hopefully will be the same. To each their own.

  • Probably when you run out of room, don't have the financial means to meet their needs, and/or if you can't spend enough time parenting and caring for each one. JMO. To each his own.

  • 3 would be my personal limit. I can't imagine trying to care for and financially support more than 3. I think even 3 may be too many. My husband and I plan I just having the one we already have. But everyone can handle things differently and if you really want to have 300 kids go ahead its your life.

  • Honestly, I don't think there is a universal answer. We want five, but we'd welcome whatever happened, planned or not.
