Ask a Question

I’m an only child, I have Close cousins but it just wasn’t the same. I now have 3 boys of my own and step daughter. I really wanted a big family and now I have one. Are you and only child or come from a big family and craved the opposite?

I have 2 brothers and the happiest part of my childhood was when they had moved out and I was the only child. Never got on with my middle brother and we never liked each other. I feel like an only child as never see or speak to them and that's the way I want it.

My son will be an only child. His sibling is the dog.

I want just one child, everyone says to me that thats not fair and my child will suffer. However, i have a brother and he HATED me growing up. Theres 18 months between us and from the second I was born, he didn’t want a sister and hated me (he is undiagnosed autistic spectrum and I think he didn’t like the change). He used to physically beat me up on a daily basis, I was always covered in bruises, claimed to everyone he was an only child and pretended he didn’t know me at school. So I would have preferred to be an only child!

Sounds like me and my brother! He didn't beat me up, it was more mental bullying but he used to say he didn't have a sister too.

I don't think it's unfair to only want one child, especially if you have a bad relationship with your own siblings. My son will be an only child, for very different reasons, but that doesn't mean he will suffer.
