    This is up to the people who create children.I believe than no one has authority or knowledge to advice, or even worse,to suggest, how many kids.

    I think at the least, two. Having them close together, gives them a chance to be close personally. But, if I could afford it, i would have more kids. They bring so much joy to my life. Just follow your heart, I am sure you will be fine. Best to you.

    I don't think anyone can answer this question for anyone else.

    We have five children - 11, 9, 6, 4 & 2.  We are quite happy.  We did not plan to have five, but are so glad we have our "surprise". smile  I would welcome more, and we plan to adopt.

    Some of my friends do not want any children.  Others only want two, and have only wanted two for most of their lives.

    If someone finds themselves with a "surprise" -- you'll be amazed at the joy the addition brings.  Even in "bad" circumstances.  One of my God-sons was conceived by rape (by her older sister's boyfriend - Yes, he is in jail) -- and the mom was 13.  Nathan is now eight, and his birth mom raised him.  She married a couple of years ago, and is quite happy.  That's not to say there weren't struggles -- bc there have been.  But, everything has always worked out.. .

    I think your answer has to be answered by each couple/potential parent...

    You have as many as you want and can afford.  That number will be different for eah family.  I like to space the kids two years apart.  In this way, you get out of the crib and diaper age sooner than having them four or five years apart.  When they are closer in age, they tend to have some of the same interests in TV shows, movies and playgrounds.
