  • yes, waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too many. Heck anyone that has 6 kids and tries for more, and is not very well off financially, has some screws loose. just my opinion.
  • It would be, for ME to have them, although I would have made medical history, I bet. +5
  • Ask Octo mom. I personally do. There is no way 2 parents can give that many kids equal attention and equal love even if they never worked and stayed home 24/7. It's not fair to kids to have that many siblings. This is just my opinion of course. I know some religions teach that God said go forth and multiply but I also think he gives you enough common sense to know when to quit.
  • Personally I think it is too many to give them all the attention they would need. And for me it would just cost too much :)
  • If they have the means to provide for them and raise them, no.
  • The Duggars don't seem to think so. http://www.duggarfamily.com/
  • 4 is too many.
  • yea but it also depend on your situation!
  • Yes, I know one woman who has 8 kids by at least 6 different men. They dont get enough attention and guidance in their lives....
  • Yes, when and if I have kids, I want no more than 2.
  • It depends on the family/parents. Some couples, like the Duggars have successfully raised like almost 20 kids now without no assistance from the gov at all. Their children are proper, polite and respectful. They've done a wonderful job on raising their large family. However, there are people out there who shouldnt have children at all.
  • No, I've known several families that had 13-15 kids and they were fabulous families. They were close families, with good values, very organized and they really loved children. I think that most families with lots of kids really do love them and care for them deeply. They usually work hard to be together and do things as a family. I admire them.
  • No, I dont. By the time you had the last few the first few would be moved out or almost ready to move out. I love larger families. I only have 2 kids, and I want more, how many more, I dunno yet. :)
  • I think the more the merrier.If parents like children allot why not.
  • I think it's a lot.
  • I dont think its too many as long as you have the time to spend with each of them and the money to spport them all well enough. I myself wouldny have that many but thats just me!
  • Yes. It ends up falling on the shoulders of the older kids to raise the younger kids. Parents are unable to give kids the individual attention they need. It could be devastating financially.
  • I personally support the idea of a strong independent woman. A wife with that many kids would basically have to make homemaking her job...which seems kind of last century and sad to me because she could never truly follow her dreams. Not to mention the wild tribe of children who would fight for the parents' precious attention. There are more things to life than making babies!
  • it depends on the parents, their resources and their support network.
  • Yes, but If that person has the money to support all them 14 kids, then more power to that family =)
  • are you mexican, jokeing but yes way too much
  • Depends on the family. I don't consider it too many if there is love.
  • Not for some people. If a couple has money enough to raise them, no problem. . I just don't want to give them special subsidies so they can have more than they can afford.
  • If I had the time, the space, the money...oh and the right woman...I'd have 14 kids.
  • Naa.. Especially if someone else is footin' the bill yo...
  • I think if the couple can handle all those kids and they have the money to feed and cloth and provide for theses kids... more power to them. But for your average family 14 kids is rediculous. Espcially if they are on welfare.
  • Depends, can you give them a comfortable life style? then it's ok. As long as you can afford them and are bringing them up in a well and stabilized family, why not?
  • considering the population of the world and how every single problem we face on this planet can be attributed to overpopulation..I think having even 1 child right now is too many.
  • my great grandomther has 14 children out of the 14 there are 2 sets of twins...back then it wasnt too many as long as u could care for them...now i think 3 is the maximum id like to have
  • Personally it seems excessive in this day and age. That being said, who are we to judge another. Provided they are taking care of those 14 kids and loving them, then I suppose that is their business.
  • I would rather see one family have fourteen and raise them well, than have fourteen people have one and raise them badly. I've known two different families with seventeen each, and they raised their kids very well. I have no problem with that. I have seen too many kids grow up with parents who don't give a hoot how they turn out and I really object to that.
  • If you can't afford to raise them it becomes too many if it's even one. The public shouldn't foot the bill for someone else's desire for children. Welfare should be a safety net, not a way of life. For those who can afford to raise their kids on their own... they can have as many as they like and you won't hear me complain.
  • No, the real king from the movie "The King and I" actually had 82 children while he was on the throne. See link: http://www.siameselife.com/mongkut_02.html
  • I think it's too much to ask of one uterus and certainly one perineum to have that many.
  • It all depends... if wanted that many. Or if you were aiming higher. But yes, indeed.
  • Like hell its to many, talking about 14 living creatures around you, (cloth,food,.....) all is x14
  • if you are with a partner, and you can take care of them financially and every other way, then no number is too many.
  • No, and anyone who thinks so can please stop talking to me. I've found that people who do are ignorant and judgmental, so I wouldn't mind having nothing to do with them if they hate on large families.
  • wow!well, thats a lot of work and if you can handle it , y not?! you get to be a rather large grandparent later on +2
  • i think it depends because if you are rich and able they are not too meny,but if its the other way round it will be diffcult,children need life its not only giving birth but bringing them up is the issue.
