I believe every mother, or at least every "good, healthy mother" knows how many kids she can handle. And I don't think there's such a thing as too many. I've studied families with over ten children, and it's true, there's not much time to devote to a single child, but there's more to life than that. Children learn social skills like no one else. And it's just amazing the many things they learn that cannot be taught at schools. Everyone sees this from a different angle and there's endless opinions on the subject, and while those opinions may all be true, the one thing we should agree on is that we should all respect other women's choices. Each one of us has her own defenition of success and happiness, and that's what we follow. Someone else's recipe might not work for us.
