Do you think it is important to have kids close together?


I really do, especially when you plan to keep the number really low as most of us do today. What do you say about it? Is it a better life for them to do this, like companionship and memories?

    I am glad they have become close Bob. My sister is four years older than me & we were never close & still not. It somehow was too much of a gap & then too she stayed gone a lot; not a home body like me being content to stay home with Mom

    I sort of believe in 2 because of how populated the world is but I agree that in certain cases it changes things; such as with you. I know of a couple cases like yours with spaces in two sets of children & can only think it has to be great paren

    Makes a lot of sense. Strange that although my two no longer hang together much they both have many of the same talents, artistically.

    That is kids for you. You wonder how two from the same family can be so different but it happens.

    This is so true. Many people have 2 children to avoid having an only child. They somehow feel that having 1 child is a stigma when it is actually highly advantageous. No sibling rivalry, no sibling drama-only children are actually the happiest !!

    "Truly, if I had it to do over, I wouldn't have had the second one at all."

    WOW! Such honesty is unusual and refreshing in this climate of "political correctness". My guess is there are some parents who wish they'd never had children period.:)

    Well my sister and I are not close with 4 yrs between us but my 4 younger brothers with 2 years between them making 6 years between the oldest and youngest have always been close. They hunt and camp and all that.

    Strange; my sister and I four years apart have never been close. She didn't want me around her and her friends and it was always that way even though I kept secrets for them and was not a brat. No reason she shouldn't have and her friends liked me.

    That is interesting; especially being opposite sex. That's wonderful.
