The more kids, the harder it is to keep the house clean. When you live in areas with Western levels of prosperity, there’s a lot of crap for kids to make a mess with! So to have more than a couple of kids, either you have to be a super organizer or you have a very high tolerance for mess. Or I suppose you could be super mean and restrictive to your kids. Most people simply have 1 or 2 kids.
I think that those countries trying to boost fertility rates could help a lot by making it easier to pay for household help for families with more than one or two kids. But then that’s another entitlement, blah, blah, blah. But I bet I’m on to something here!
Because, trust me, more stuff + more kids = more mess!
