  • Worse never having any privacy
    Best is always having someone to talk to or turn to when you need a listening ear

  • if you have a large family that sticks together and everyone respect each other and everyone helps one another out as in babysitting etc thats awesome.
    Or do you mean you and your husband having lots and lots of kids?

  • We have 2 kids now. We want 4. I consider that a large family.
    No, not lots and lots of kids.

  • We have 4 children - best part is that it will only get larger and our family gatherings are loud, fun, and full.
    Worst part - there has been no worst part.

  • The worst part has to be that I never get any time to myself and the best part is that there is always something going on and my older kids actually help with the younger ones which makes it so much easier. I wouldn't trade any of it for anything.

  • we have 4 kids.
    You need bigger cars
    travel is expensive too
    when they are teens they eat a lot

    But I would not trade it for the world!

  • I grew up in a large family.
    Worst: No privacy, often felt lonely despite having 3 other siblings, my sister stole my indentity, etc.
    Good: I will let you know if there is any good. lol

    Best- honestly I don't know, I just know I love my family very much and wouldn't trade my life for anything
    Worst- costs more
