If you had an extremely difficult child and chose to have another

Why did you make that decision? My friend's dd has ODD and is more than a handful, even gets violent on a regular basis. Yet my friend decided to have yet another(this will be her third) child. I have a hard time wrapping my mind around why they would want to do that.

My dd has autism and I am envious of the other parents that come in with other children, younger than their asd child. I didn't think I'd be able to handle another, but kudos to them if they think they can. People have different levels of what they can handle.

If it's not causing them to neglect any other children, they can have as many kids as they can afford.

My youngest had a severe milk and soy allergy. It was hell for a little over a year. We're going to be trying for another even though we've experienced how medical issues can happen.

I don't think anyone's trying to prevent them from having kids. I'm just curious as to why they would want to.

wow...

do you ask the same with parents of physically disabled children?

-Sometimes diagnosis comes later

-Maybe they would just like one? 

.... *no words*

I'm right there with you.

I knew by the time he was 18months that he would take everything I had.

If my daughter had been my first, I would have been one and done. DS was such an easy baby/toddler. I almost feel tricked.
