    To all parents out there, if you had to do it over again, would YOU have children at all or less

    children than you presently have? Be truthful in your answers.

    Yes absolutely!
    I had a difficult pregnancy but the moment I held my child in my arms, I felt heavenly pleasure which continues even now when I hug them. They are all grown up enough to have their own kids.
    I have loved each moment bringing up my children. Bringing up kids is a full time job and a great responsibility but it is a wonderful feeling to see them growing up and that pleasure cannot be replaced by anything for me.

    None of my children were actually planned out, however if I could do it all over again, I wouldn't change a thing.

    Yes I think I would, I love my children and they have taught me a lot.  My son has special needs but he's the happiest kid I know.

    yes, I would go through the labor pain again but one child only. Two is a big crowd

      With  social networking today, children really don't need siblings for companionship.  In fact, siblingship can be quite harmful to children in terms of parental attention, self development and self esteem.

    Yes, but I'd do things differently.  I'd start earlier, keep my job and have full time help in the house. I'd also not buy a single pregnancy or parenting book and would listen to my Mom and instinct in the knowledge that I was doing absolutely fine!
