#16, so...you do know that you're basically saying you'd rather your parents didn't have you, right? I mean, I thought life was special, but if you really don't want to live...there are plenty of people who are fighting for their lives. Maybe become an organ donor before you do anything about it. :) be happy for what you have, and stop looking at what others have with envy. You're lucky to be on this earth.

One child is enough for some people. Yes they don't have siblings but they're usually incredibly spoilt and get whatever they want. But don't hate your parents for only having one child, there may have been multiple reasons as to why they couldn't have another.

16, have you ever heard the expression 'the grass is always greener on the other side'? Most only children spend their childhoods wanting siblings, and most children with siblings spend their childhood wanting to be only children. There is no one right way to have a family and no one way to parent perfectly. There is just the life that you have, and how you chose to live it.

So having one child is "evil", but what about you know, abusing/murdering your child? I am an only child and have a single parent, and I grew up fine. I never wanted siblings. Jusr because you can't be happy doesn't mean every only child endlessly whines about something that doesn't matter. My mom doesn't even really talk to her siblings, they're not great, so having siblings doesn't mean you'll have people in your life forever or that they'll even like you.

@16, having an only child is NOT an evil thing to do as parents. I know this because I am one myself and I NEVER wanted any siblings, ever. My parents could "afford" more than one, but only had one. Thanks to that, I am much more financially secure (read: not in tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt due to higher education, they were able to pay $300k NICU costs for the first month of my life, etc.). If you can't "afford" to provide for children, don't have any a

Sorry, but single children ARE more spoiled thanks there was multiple children. It's simple. One child = all attention, toys, ect. Two or more children = shared attention, toys, such, the money has to be used to give them all something. Just because you have a sibling doesn't mean you aren't alone. Just because you are a single child doesn't mean you are alone. There's this great thing called friends.

#16 are you serious "if you could only afford one don't have any at all" that has to be the most idiotic thing I've ever heard do you not know how much it costs to raise a child?! On average it's about 280,000

But, see, for every one of you, there is one of me who didn't hate being an only child. I spent the first half of my childhood as an only child and never gave even a passing thought to wanting a sibling. Not only was I an only child, I grew up on property so I couldn't just walk out my front door to go knock on a friend's door. It wasn't until I was older that I moved to a neighborhood and got a sibling all at once. I am a married adult now and I love my brothers and would die for them, but gr

I'm an only child, #16, and I'm just fine with it. If parents, by chance, don't have twins, it doesn't mean that they are "evil". And don't act like you are speaking for every only child out there, because you aren't.

#43 I feel your pain. I too showed horses. My mother was very supportive of it, and my brother's football. My dad, on the other hand, would say he would come to shows, then not show up, or come at the beginning and then leave before I ever even had a class. But he was always at my brother's stuff.

I was kinda the opposite to you #43 my siblings were all 9-11 years old when I was born (and there was 4 of them). I had siblings, but no where close to me in age. My siblings had all moved out before my ninth birthday. My parents and I moved to a different city for my dads work, and so we only saw my siblings a few times a year for weekend visits. This meant that although I wasn't an only child, I lived as though I was one. my parents had me quite late (my mom was 32, and my dad 34) so by the t
