What do you think?

I have four kids, and I’m pretty happy. I mean, I’m also pretty exhausted and pretty broke, but I’m also pretty happy.  Granted, my kids are now older with my oldest being a teenager and my youngest almost in the double digits, but when they were little having four kids only five years apart was quite stressful and taxing. Even through all the stressful times, I love having four kids, but I don’t think it makes me happier than my friends who have less kids than I do.

While many people think one or two kids is enough, whether because of financial reasons, health reasons or just personal preference, a new study out of Australia says the key to being happier lies in having a certain amount of kids.

Is more, better? A new study shows that the happiest parents are those that have four or more kids. What do you think about that?
