What do you need to do differently when you have a big family?

Cupid’s Advice:

How many kids you have is a personal choice between you and your significant other.  Some couples choose to have one child, and others choose to have many more.  Cupid has some things you may need to do differently if you plan on having a big family:

1. Bigger cars: For a family of three, you can take your pick of automobile.  If there are over five in your family, you may  need to invest in a larger car, or possibly even two modes of transportation.

2. Time limits: With a lot of children, budgeting time limits is essential.  At certain points of the day, you may need to set up a certain amount of time for the bathroom, the television and maybe even specific homework schedules.  You need to make sure to support each child equally.

3. Budgeting: We all know how pricy children can be, and the bigger the family, the more expensive it gets.  You’re going to need to plan ahead for various expenses for each child, which involves major money planning.
