I think having one kid would make me insane.  Luckily I’ll never know for sure

2 are expensive enough. Took care of that issue after that.

The study was conducted in Europe.  Has little to do with having and raising children here in the U.S.

The jump from 2 to 3 was much harder than I expected. My youngest is 2 & 1/2 now and I feel like we just got everything dialed in. It’s chaos, but I wouldn’t trade it.

My oldest is 22 and my youngest is 8.  Right now I have all of my boys (22, 19, 12 and 8) working together in my greenhouse building some walls and grow beds.  My 17yo daughter is working on her truck, my 21yo daughter is working on a horse pen at her house and my 10yo daughter is working with her mom.

I can’t afford not to have a big family.

In case you guys, especially white folks haven't figured out, the reason they want immigrants to flood this country, legal and illegal, is because you guys would rather have "stuff" than reproduce.

Look at every family of color, they have 4+ children. White families generally have 2-3, and they're done.

Wasn’t 1 it was a small group of late 30s or early 40s liberal white women in Haight Ashbury area.
Middle aged liberal women at a high end grocery store. First time anyone said some shit like that to me in front of my kids who were very young. I was caught off guard and didn’t say shit. Just stared at them with a are you out of your fucking mind look. My ex was down the street shopping so I just got the kids away from there.

It's only bad if you're unfit. Thankfully for the unfit the following is true in every way...

IDIOCRACY Opening Scene (2006) Mike Judge


Eugenics might have been completely batshit stupid in the details but the goal and mechanism wasn't. I mean, if you want to make a better world population, start with the best genes. Unfortunately, when you choose that course of action you inevitably run up against the fact that most of the people in the world are just a little too stupid to live and if you get rid of them then you'll have nobody left as an underclass that gets to do all the servant work so you end up having to keep a fairly large population of them around and they're pretty prone to rising up indignantly to generations of accumulated indignation.

Sure. Mail me a stipend check for about $15k per year per extra kid over my one and I’ll get right on that.

Also, we are too old to have any more of our own so we will have to adopt them. That typically costs about $30k, I’ll need that paid for as part of the up front starting cost as well.

Not Irish twins! Link

What Are Irish Twins?
Years ago, when two children were born within 12 months of each other, people often referred to them as "Irish twins." And when three children were born to the same mother within three years, they were called "Irish triplets." (begin feelz) But today these phrases are considered outdated and are less frequently used, particularly because their origins come from a derogatory stereotype of poor Irish Catholic families having lots of kids close together.

Don’t worry. The sheer stress of being constantly broke despite making more money than I’ve ever made will ensure that my ass is dead and buried well before old age / retirement ever becomes a concern.

Yes another testament to over reach and how OPINION not decency runs our country. Here's the answer to stupidity like this. They are incorrect.  
Also again another attack on the family.  NY Post is no surprise. When they pay my bills and taxes and mortgage...they can tell me how many kids to have. Every child is a blessing and the destruction of the core family unit is the reason this world sucks. These people are going to realize that very soon.
