You probably already know this, but you are better off solo or with adults. You are a thinker, who must have order and must be able to complete a thought. Rugrats will only stir up the muck.
Your Best To Go It Solo
You do best when you are one on one with children. It's important to you to communicate and give the children you are around your full attention. If you have children you should probably only have one that you can parent just the way you want. That plus you are not entirely patient enough to have a brood.
You are good with multiple children and believe that children should have siblings. If you become a parent you should have two, but no more than three. If you don't have children you should seek them out, i.e.. spend time with your nieces and nephews. You will be the cool aunt/uncle and you need the interaction to be fulfilled in your life.
Two Children, But Not More Than Three
You should have a brood of children, or be a teacher at least. Children love to be around you and you love the energy of being around groups of children. You have a lot of love to give and owe it to the children in your life to give it.
The More The Merrier
You like kids well enough, but do not have the disposition to be around them 24/7. When you are with them, you are fun and playful which is why you are a great babysitter, but when it comes down to the nitty gritty of scraped knees and parenting a teenager, you would not hold up.
