ANSWERS: 28
  • I would say seven or eight
  • For me, any kids would be too many. For two parents with a modest income, I would say 4 should be the cap.
  • For what? As in a family, hey whatever they can afford to raise. In a group, as long as they are well behaved and respectful.... I love children it's their parents that do the damage and make them intolerable.
  • well i have read about woman that have had 8 kids, and this is a lot so i would say enough for a woman to want to have in one life time, but if you where to adopt maybe 12 - 20 depends on your support, lol
  • When the parents can not give all the children what they need, food, warmth and shelter, clothing, education and most importantly, their time and love, then that is too many.
  • When the amount of children are consuming just below your resources.
  • As many as you can tolerate. This includes how many your income and resources can support without denying them food, shelter and clothing. And as many as you can love and discipline and teach without becomming overstressed and harried. And the amount you can love and tolerate considering their individual differences and needs. The number will vary with each set of parents and their age, training and energies. For some people, one is more that enough and for some a dozen or so is not too many.
  • I would say 5 or 6 is the absolute highest for me. But who cares about me? This is your life!
  • It depends upon your income, your tolerance level and whether you are an abusive parent. An abusive parent should have no children whatsoever, while a rich person could have many.
  • According to one demographic study I read, if every family (or the average family?) had 2 children there would be a slow decline in the US (it might have been the world) population. Given the crowdedness and congestion that so many of us experience, I'd say that 3 or more is too many in terms of the quality of life for society as a whole. For me more than zero is too many. We're childless and that's our preference.
  • For some people one is too many.
  • if you can't count them on the fingers of both hands you have too many kid. And being able to remember the names too.
  • I am very conflicted in my answer here. I think people should have as many children as they can comfortable afford and care for, but I also believe that overpopulation has ruined this world. 30,000 people starve to death every day, and the problem is just getting worse. Even with an equitable distribution of food and resources to every person currently alive on Earth, there wouldn't be enough for everyone. The answer lies in proper development of technology,not in limiting the number of children into good families.
  • 4 or more i believe
  • When you can't afford them. Not enough money or time. Just because one has enough money to financially support one's offspring if one does not have the appropriate amount of time to dedicate to their children then they cannot afford them. And by dedicate I mean undivided attention in person. Children left without attention even if their parents are home STILL need a *little* undivided attention. Children need to KNOW that they are loved and all the money in the world can't buy that. Sitting next to your son/daughter while reading the newspaper while they play at your feet doesn't let them KNOW that they are loved, nor while they are doing homework or while you make dinner. Eh..Sorry about the rant. Love is the most important thing a child needs and if you can't afford that then you can't afford your child/children and you have too many.
  • When you are no longer able to support them.
  • I'd say 5. It's a vagina, not a clown car.
  • I think the number is different for each person but I would say when you are not able to financially nor emotionally provide for all their needs, (not wants, needs) then that is too many.
  • The Duggers... THey have about 10 too many if you ask me!
  • 2 or 3 it 's enought!
  • For me, one.
  • One is too many
  • if you have more than you can support and feed and educate and provide medical care for and give individual attention to, you have to many. in my opinion
  • I guess it depends on how many you want
  • When you can't feed or clothe them, educate them or give them all the love they need, that's too many.
  • One is too many. None is perfect.
  • As long as you can afford to have them, then no amount is too many!!!!
