I too went with all these questions when thought of having my second Son... It really is a big responsibility coz managing with a little one when u already have little toes moving around.. Means a big thing.. But its really worth everything all the love and affection between the cuties brings loads of satisfaction .. It takes away whole tiredness of the day...

Hi Sujata D! Appreciate yr thoughtfulness. If all parents take this initiative I am sure many orphans or abandoned children who deserve to get their share of love, will get lucky.

Hi Sheila AJ! Ideally there should be a gap of at least 3 and a half years between two kids, as it gives mothers' body the required time to prepare itself for next conception. Plus kids also get their due share of love, and attention from the mother with appropriate spacing between kids. But there is no such hard and fast rule. If u wish u cud consult yr gynecologist to see if this is the right time to bear another child and yr body is prepared for it too.

Hi Divyaganesh! Having a second child should be completely yr decision. If u believe, u will be able to do justice to yr 2nd child on following parameters such as: 1. Giving him/ her his due share of love and time. 2. You have the support required to take care of a new member. 3. U r physically strong enough to take care of another bundle of energy. 4. U have the required financial resources to support two kids till their schooling lasts and fulfill all their other requirements. Hope this helps!

Nice sharing. To decide for second child is always difficult but it's totally depend on person to person.

congrts ...shikha u r proud mother of two little angels ....i agree with u it took so much of hard work in upbringing of kids... specially when u r on ur own... in nuclear family... i can understand.. because i have also gone through that tough time.... when there is no one to support u with two kids... both my kids make me realise how challenging it is to be a parent..... I will always love them and proud of them..... my two little naughty boys. Hatts off to you and all the mom nd dad across the world...
