How many children do you think is enough children?
When you're young and thinking about children most say they want 2 or 3 children just wondered if you ever said more than that or want more than 2 or 3
Personally I think 3 would be enough for me but I look up to anyone who is brave enough to have more
My mum has 8 children, one of my Aunts has 6 children and another has 5 I have a big family so I think that put me off slightly from wanting more children

I always said I want 4-10 kids and wanted a few of those to be adopt children with disabilities. I still want a few adopted children with disabilities (im on a spot financially now to start the process but want to wait a few more years) but I'm debating on ds being my only bio child or having more. I kind of dont want to have more of my own.

I always wanted a large family with about 4 kids. Then I had my second and decided I would be insane to have any more. Two is perfect for us. lol.

I don't think there is a number. Enough= how many you can afford and mentally handle. For me, one is enough. For my stepdad's mom, she was disappointed she could 'only' have sixteen.

I always wanted alot of kids like 4 (that's alot to me), but realistically now, I'll probably just have 1 or 2.. I have 2 step kids already... guess that constitutes as 4 though, if I have 2 of my own..

It depends on the parents :D I ve seen parents with 5 kids and each child gets the right amount of care and attention they deserve but I've seen families with 2 or 3 children who can't and shouldn't have had more

For me? Zero. But it's a little late for that, so I'll make do with 3.

We want four or five. Right now we have two.
