For me, I think 4 or more is considered a large family. I don't think a family is that large unless they have 7 or more though. 4-6 is kind of large, but 7 or more is really large.

I think 4 or more is considered a large family, it's pretty common to have 3 children but a lot of people stop there. In the town I live in 2 or 3 children are pretty much the norm.

I consider 4 kids to be a big family. No one ever speaks of having "only" or "just" 4 kids. Then again, you could get a lot bigger.

I think 4 is large. But around here it seems anything bigger than two is large.

This is exactly what I see around me. Most people have 3 children and than stop. In Cyprus, 4 or more children are considered a large family. The gov't gives large families financial child support, the amt depending on the family income. It's not much but it does come in handy every month. For me a 'large' family would be around 6 or more.

I'm with you all; 4 is larger than average, 5+ is large...I grew up in a town where there was a family with 17 children!!!! Same mom, same dad; and the mom was about 5" tall! That's a classroom!!!

In my town, 3 is normal, and 4 is quite common too...
