Sound-off: How many kids are too many?
Most people have a strong opinion about whether or not they want children, and if so, how many they want to raise. Although many Americans are fascinated by reality television programs and news stories about families with a dozen kids or more, most people are satisfied with one, two or three kids.
But what do you think? How many kids, in your opinion, are too many?
One is too many. I don't want any kids, so the thought of even one is scary to me.
Two is too many. I enjoy having one kid. It allows me to focus on him / her exclusively, and I can still have a life away from my child.
Three is too many. America is designed for the family of four, and once you have five, everything becomes more difficult. Plus, you have to own a much larger car to accommodate three kids.
Four or more is too many. I manage / think I could manage three kids, but any more than that is too chaotic. Plus, the world is already overpopulated, so why do you need to bring so many more people into the world?
Everyone seems to think that having a big family is great and the more the merrier, but what will the worlds population look like in 20 years if everyone decided to have four children. I think having a big family is important too, but I'm planning to adopt.
Funny you mentioned the topic b/c I just had a realization about having kids this morning. Although I don't want a family until I'm at least 30, I always thought 2 was a good amount. And then I got to thinking, when I'm older-like 50-I'm going to want to have a large family that I can enjoy. And I think I would be nice be siblings to have more than just one brother or sister (since I grew up with only one brother)...So, I think 3 or 4 kids would be cool, provided they could be financially supported for
Howver many I have is correct and however many you have isn't.
Have as many kids as you can love and pay for yourself. If that is 0, then fine. If that is 8, then great.
It is not the number of kids it is how many can you financially support yourself. It should not be up to the tax payers to help support your kids, if you want to have kids you need to support and supply for your own kids. They are your responsibility, to LOVE and care for.
