Given that each new mouth to feed puts a drain on much needed, and fast disappearing natural resources, how many kids is enough?

I think that 2 is a good number, one for each parent, then the worlds population may drop to a reasonable balance. It would be a lot cheaper for the parents too! :lol:

Yeah, I would have voted 0.
I also follow my own advice, no more mini me's!

I voted for 8+

The faster we go through Earth's own resource the faster those penny pinching oxygen theives in governments and corporations the world over will invest in getting us off this putrid pebble in space. :p

everyone should get a credit. one to replace yourself. you dont want kids then the credit goes up for lottery for those that want more

I voted for 1, but if there was a 0 option I would put that. Voluntary Human Extinction ftw!

I wish I had a dollar for every time I rambled on about a much needed global population control, especially if some third-world countries with massive populations (like India and China) ever reach a first world status and everyone there is going to want their own house and car :faint:

2 is enough...globally. 2 in theory is enough to replace each parent when they die, so things stay balanced, especially the ratio of young people to old people :p

I voted for 2 as well. Being that I have 2 right now and they are plenty enough to handle. :)

Two kids. A kid's gotta have someone to confide in, and that isn't always the parent. There's just some things kids don't want to tell their parents, but would willingly tell their sibling (I'm talking from experience). It might also make them less selfish if they have to share their parents' attention between the two of them.

1 ideally (for me) because there are already so many people, there's always adoption if you want more ._. I can see why someone would want more of their own, though :\
I say if you have the money to have tons of kids, then go for it. It's too much when you have 3-5 and you can barely put food on the table. Clothes, food, living expenses and schooling is expensive, especially since a lot of parents aren't able (and unfortunately, there are some that are unwilling) to seek better paying jobs.

I've always said I'd prefer 2 children, 3 maximum. I'm biased though coming from a family where I'm the eldest of 3 (I have a 13yrs old brother and 22yrs old sister).

I think we have enough children in orphanages, instead of making more, people need to adopt...

If every person limited themselves to 2 total children the world population would stabilize and slowly over time decrease, however given that many parts of the world already suffer from massive overpopulation, 1 would be better.

2 absolute max, but preferably none. single children usually turn out to be spoiled brats, so if your going to have kids at all have 2 to balance them out.

It has only been a few months since the population hit 7 billion and there are already over 13 million more! :wow:
