9. One child, two children, three children
I do not believe that it is the number of children that counts.

It is how the child is raised.

I have also known families of 3+ children where the youngest was spoiled and a brat.

And as for the spanking, I do not believe in that either. It is as violent as the child's behavior, and I wonder if the one did not result in the other.
