When is the right time to have a sibling?

Most couples think about whether they want one or two or more children before their first child is born. However, the birth of the first child can change everything: some parents think that one child is enough, while others decide that they want as many children as possible, even though they had already decided that they were an only child.

The family\’s economic situationalso plays a major role in the decision. Our social system is not very supportive of families with children, often requiring them to rely on their own funds or savings; if you feel you cannot financially manage a second child, consider whether there is a solution or put this plan on the back burner.
