Me and husband are not able to agree for second child. I feel having brother or sister is important. But he is saying one is enough. How to explain? We fight on this.

May be he is thinking financial wise and not in your agreement if that's the case may be you guys can plan, if you are not working you may start. May be you can make your kid to excited about brother or sister , I'm sure your husband won't ignore that.

Hey I know its difficult to take decision of second child. Try to convince your husband by giving example from his family.

hello instead of fighting explain to each other your reasons of having and not having another kid.  make a list of pros and cons and then come to a collective solution.  all the best 💞

A few years ago this would have been my case. We sat together and worked on why it was important to have a second baby(my point) and why it was important to do other things in life other than babies(his point). Well, you know who won! ;) Another strong support for me was my first born who was hell bent on having a sibling like most of his friends. I still think it is very important to have a second one and it was a wise decision even if it took a while longer.

u and husband need to agree on this coz after all u will need his support once baby comes. u cant raise a child in a scenario where the father wasnt willing right.
gently talk abt why u feel u need a second one, show him good examples of families around you. also try to understand ehy he says no.
it will take a few months maybe. but u wont achieve anything by fighting.

it's very important for both you and ur husband sud agree for 2nd child. u both sud sit and discuss. you need understand why is he saying no and think about the ways you both can work mutually.. having 2nd child is imp but same time raising s second is equally difficult. plz talk and mutually what's good for the family. all the best

Why do u want second child? Please find a better reason that just having a sibling. And think how will you manage things with a new member in your life. what support you have and what more will you need. How will your elder kid cope with this change? First you do complete homework so that except financial burden if your husband has any other concerns you have a logical answer. If you convince him with logic I m sure he will also accept your idea.

both of you sit down and discuss the pros n cons of having a second child. discuss other factors like finance, sharing chore, babysiting etc..
ask the reason why you hub is not willing to go for another baby and try to sort his reason

Ujjwal Mishra(SuperMommy) for me having a sibling is a good enough reason. Thanks.

It should be a mutual decision taken by both of and not just one of you.

this is something that you both should agree about how your child might feel that u kept him deprived of the sibling live when he grows up... sit down and jot down the pros n cons..let him see that this has more pros than cons...
