Your German colleagues will probably ask you about your family.  They might say:

Haben Sie eine Familie?    Do you have a family?

Haben Sie Kinder?    Do you have children?

Here are all the different possible answers.  You only need to remember the one that applies to you!

Ja, ich habe ein Kind / zwei Kinder   Yes, I have one child / two children

Nein, ich habe keine Kinder    No, I have no children

Ich habe eine Tochter   I have a daughter

or Ich habe vier Töchter   I have four daughters

Ich habe einen Sohn   I have a son

or Ich habe zwei Söhne   I have two sons

If, like Soo, you have one of each, say:

Ja, ich habe einen Sohn und eine Tochter.
