How do you know when enough is enough when it comes to having kids?
Having children can be the most beautiful gift in the world, but don’t take on too much when it comes to having and raising kids. Here’s how to know when enough is enough:
1. Your finances are unstable: You want your kids to have the best life possible and their life will be negatively affected if you are not financially secure. From buying diapers and clothes to saving up for their college fund, money is a major factor in having children. If you are just getting by taking care of the children you already have, you may want to hold back on having more.
2. You’re overwhelmed as it is: The stress of balancing work, children and finances can be overwhelming. If you are strained from your hectic life, adding another child to the equation will not help.
3. One person in the relationship doesn’t want any more: Relationships are all about compromise, not winning and losing. If one person in the relationship doesn’t want more kids, you must respect that. Let them be the best parent they can be to the children you already have, and don’t pressure them for more.
