  • If your kids are raising your kids, you've got too many.

  • When you feel like you can't meet the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of each of your children.

  • It varies.. Some women love to have a big family and can handle it, some can't. I have 2, and that enough for me!

  • I like mommytobe626's answer. Based on that I think I have too many, lol. I have 5 and there are some days I'd love to "lose" a couple of them...if only for a few hours. At least the older 3 are in school. It's just me, the 4yo and the 3mo at home. Those 2 drive me bonkers. Can't wait for the 4yo to be in school next year.
    We're done now. Had my tubes tied because they were all c-sections. I think hubby wanted 1 more but it's my health so I had the final say.

  • Depends on the parents; I know I plan on my son being an only child, I also know people who have 4, 5, or 6 kids and they love the chaos.
    Speaking in general terms, I don't really care how many kids have, unless they are A) living off taxpayer dollars (Octomom) B) The kids are raising the kids (Duggars) or C) the parents are exploiting the children to become famous (Jon & Kate)

  • for me 4 is to many. I have 3 and I that was the right number for me.
