Would you have more kids if PSLE is not so stressful?

Postby ngl2010 » Tue Nov 17, 2015 10:05 pm

I've been hearing my friends said they will have more children if PSLE is not so stressful. What is your opinion?

I feel that there are more issues that are multi times more stressful than PSLE.

PSLE is not the primary concern for me and hubby.

There are many factors for consideration.
It can boil down to having quality time with spouse ,
1-1 attention for child,
financial means,
child bearing over age risk,
Getting trusted caregiver
Overseas job opportunities

Some above examples are real issues of what my hubby and I have experienced. We are happy to have our only daughter.

I don't see psle as an impt exam. Rather, it is a gauge of my child's ability. Hence, there is no stress from me & dh. The high stress came from school instead! For me, there are more impt values & character building aspects at this age to focus on than academics.

A P6 exam has so much sway over how many kids we want?

Age
Finances
Caregiving support

These are the things that I would consider. Not some exam.

PSLE is not the reason why I stopped at 2.
It's more to do with affordability, age, and caring for the child.
For most women, giving birth to a child is easier than bringing them up.

Haha.. Not even if someone offers me 1 mil for 1 more extra kid that I have now.

Too much responsibility, tiime and effort r needed to make sure a child grows up well.

Money will not entice me to have #3, not even 1 million.
I've enough of waking up nights to change diapers, express milk 24/7, cooking porridge before going out, fever during teething period and after jabs, weaning off milk, terrible 2s etc. :dowan:

1 mil for every kid? Where do I sign up?
Would a football team suffice?
