  • Why are you concerned with if women you have never met before think you have too many kids? As long as you take care of them, love them, and provide for them, what does it matter if you have 1 kid, 6 kids, or even 10 kids?

  • That is way to many... for me. If it works for you then I say have 10! I had a lot of brothers and sisters and we had so much fun growing up together. I don't get why any one should care how many you have. If you are not asking me to watch them or to help support them then I say congratulations.

  • It is not too many as long as your nerves can take it and as long as you are the one keeping them up and not government assistance.!

  • If you can properly care for and support them, I think you are fine, I know this one woman who has 6 kids and is pregnant again. She gets like $700 and something a month for food stamps plus she gets wic, she gets cash assistance, all her school aged kids are on free lunch, her little ones get free daycare, she gets housing assitance and they are all on medicaid. Her son is in my little brother's boys scout group and she brags about it all the it, she even says that is why she has gotten pregnant with the last 3 and this one she is pregnant with now. (of course her son in in boy souts for free)

  • As long as you can save for retirement and send your kids to college, then you are fine.
