  • I think two or three would be okay. I Guess it depends on how many you think you can handle

  • It depends on how much patience, room, money & love you can provide for your kids. Two is plenty for most people, but some families really want more.

  • I have 4. Although I would never regret having each of them and I can't imagine life without them, hmm. Probably 3. Although 2 is really plenty. One for each of you. After that, you've run out of hands. I always say, if you can handle three, you can handle twenty.

  • As many as you want as long as you can properly love and care for them!! We stopped at 2, for many reasons. Financial, plus I had alot of complications during my second pregnancy and I just don't think I could go through that again, and we have 2 boys who get along great and are best friends, another one would be "odd" LOL!! 2 is a nice even number and we're very happy with our family.

  • i really don't know how many each household should have but the ideal number would be 2 because in this day in age everthing is getting more expensive and you would like to be able to get them all that they would need.........

  • As many as you can financially AND emotionally support. For me, that's one. For you, it may be something different.

  • treat them equally, and provide everything they need and the skys the limit I suppose. But they have to be equals!
