Ideally, how many kids would you have?

Postby concern2 » Tue Sep 13, 2011 1:55 pm

If you do not have your current constraints (for whatever reasons that hold you back), how many children would you have had/choose to have?

I happened to see a poll about "How many Children do you have", and thought it'll be interesting to know how many children Singaporeans would choose to have if given a choice (without the current constraints if any).

after dd, didnt want another but decided to have another much later. after 2nd one, again decided not to have 3rd one. but now ................would like to have the 3rd one..............after that maybe 4?

:whut: sorry, dont seem to be answering your question but that is how i am feeling now (would like to have no. 3 but dont think so).

guess 3 is what i would like to have.

I notice that many parents who are not so worried about finances have 4 children. This is just in my circle of acquaintances.

In an ideallic situation, I see a family picture complete with 2 sets of healthy doting grandparents, parents and 4 happy children in a lovely garden setting. In the background, hidden from view, are 2 dedicated helpers.

Back to reality, in my picture, I see fatigued but thankful parents to 2 children crammed together in a 2 seater sofa.

I have 2. If DH and I were not such 'involved' and 'hands on' parents, we would consider no 3. We love children but we are struggling financially and physically. Right now, we're in survival mode. We won't rule out adoption at a later stage but that's another chapter yet to be written.

I oso so envious.

Unfortunately, sometimes, it is not as simple as 'just do it'.
