Thank you Elena, but problem is that in this case the subject is "More than two". Is it countable or not?

i think 4 will be vere good

2boys and 2girles 

whate's about you ?? 

You think 2 are enough ??

Oh 

i'm sorry 

I have read incorrectly

So sorry

"Too many" is correct. You wouldn't say "I have too much children." 

No problem, Omar.

Thank you for your explanation, thatrobertguy!

Although, I am still confused by the fact that the verb "to be" is in the singular here. Should it be in the plural in the case we use "many", shouldn't it?

 

I think both of them are correct. It depends what do you want to say? If you mean two is enough as a number and don't want to another child you should use "many"; but if you mean two is enough as a responsibility, for to good education and good raise, you should use "much". But what ever you mean, two children are not enough both as a number or a responsitibility. We need more than two children, I think it must be at least six:).

Thank you, makdis57, I like this thought. I would like to hear from professional teachers, but they somehow ignore the topic. As for me, one child is too much.
