    The world is becoming a more dangerous place and I don't feel that I would even be happy having kids now, let alone in ten or fifteen years time, bringing them into a world that seems to be doing everything wrong at the moment.
    Oh I've been thinking about this a lot lately, I feel very selfish for wanting them for my own pleasure you know, but at the same time I don't think my life would be 'complete' without kids.. :/

    Hmm there are four of us, yet I'm not really close to any of them.
    I don't look or act like I'd ever want kids but one day I want to have atleast three! If not more. Will probably cost a bomb raising them all but it would be so much fun. Just need to find a man who thinks the same now

    Why anyone would want 5 is beyond me...
    My mum currently is helping a woman who has 4 children and is pregnant with her 5th.
    She had to hire my mum to help because she unable to cope on her own. The house is a bomb site, total chaos, the nappies are never changed, she cannot tend to all the childrens needs therefore they are being brought up to fight for attention and she is permanently sleep deprived.
    She gave up her career as a lawyer to have kids and in May she will have 3 children under the age of 3. :eek:
    Moral of the story? 5 young children = bad idea.

    I voted none because I don't see children in my future.
    If I do one day change my mind though, I won't have more that 2.
    Two is good I think as being an only child can be lonely :sad:

    Two. I want to be able to spend time with them, buy them nice things, and pay for their schools and university fees, and give them the lifestyle I've had. Therefore, I won't have anymore as I don't want them to have to share it all with others.

    As of now I wouldn't want any, though I'm 19 and that viewpoint may likely change when I'm a bit older. Even then though It would be 1-2, I'm an only child myself and I think only having 1 or 2 kids would be much less stressful!
