  • too many is more than you are capable of caring for. if you can care for 6 then go for it

  • If you can fit them all in your car, go for it. My back seat is maxed out with 3.

  • For me personally.

    More than 1.

    I have no opinion in regards to how many are too many for anyone else..

  • Depends on the parents/people. Me, I think over 3 is to many.

  • If you can financially support them and have the time and energy then have the number of kids you want.

  • Have as many as you can take care of. Hopefully, they get the love, attention and necessities that they require. I have one and I am amazed when people have two or more.

  • I agree if you can financially support them and provide moral, emotional support for them then go for it. I have 4 of my own and I think I am done, my husband wants one more but I don't think mentally or emotionally I can, not right now so we are waiting until I feel comfortable with our situation...then I am absolutely done!

  • As long as you can take care of them all, it's not too much.
