Hmm... does this person have dementia?

No, maybe they're just unsatisfied with their fertility.

Ах да, я русская между прочим. А парень молодец, что сомневается насчёт think и других предложений. Он был абсолютно прав. Поэтому оскорбления здесь неуместны!

Is it just me or does this sentence suggest that it means 'too few' (ie not enough) children? If it were a simple statement of fact, then it's not likely to be prefaced with 'i think/consider/believe'.

Yes, it suggests too few. The context seems to be "I have two kids, but i wish i had 3 or 4."

По предложению невозможно определить сколько детей. Это может быть и один ребёнок, но всё равно человек скажет "Я считаю, у меня мало детей." Впрочем для кого-то и трое или четверо тоже может показаться мало.

Better be positive about this kind of stuff dude...

I also wrote "consider" here, think-думаю. Программистам ещё нужно подправить эту программу. Наверное это бета версия. Слишком уж много ляпов, если так можно выразиться.Моя 120 попытка подтвердить, что я свободно говорю по-русски xD

Why is "...a few children" marked wrong?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Paul633408

After "sowing wild oats" a few children here and there ..not so responsible...and biologicallyonly possible for men not to be sure!

said no parent ever!

Could've been a teacher on a field trip and then it's a very scary thought.

"a" few was not available in tiles. This isn't a native speaker, or the content was rushed. No one says the sentence as it is written.
