Interesting...still no only children as yet, but Dreikers (way back when) theorized that if there is more than 7 years of space in between you and the next, you've been raised as an only child. I happened to marry the oldest of 6 (TWICE!)

Stephanie, I do think only one other sibling helps as well. Sounds like a wonderful family. I hope you have your educational consulting business in your hubs b/c I have free online learning games that I created on my website. Feel free to email me
Peggaduse, Now see, I could handle homeschooling. It's that whole crowd control thing I don't have "goin' on". I remember student teaching and taking the 25 kids down to the gym when they didn't have specialists. 25 kids in the gym terrified me!
I agree Billie. It was hard enough for me to handle my own child. But 25 of them? I don't think I could do it without pulling my hair out. lol.

Andrew, Ah, ha! Interesting. And I think a person with siblings is much more comfortable with "criticism" because brothers and sisters tease and can be negative, and knows how to handle it. Don't know exactly how to put that. Thanks, Andrew!

So, my theory is off! Were you at the high school, college, or elementary level" And you're right, you are essentially an only child. However, I'm thinking that if you're sister had children, you're experience with them might have helped (?)
Interesting, Billie! My sister had five kids and I babysat them a great deal growing up. I taught middle school and high school for eighteen years. :)
Billy from Billie, soooo maybe it IS that interaction in "a teaching role" early on that helps. My mother never let me babysit because she worried about "kidnappers!". I had one babysitting experience - at 16 with kids who were asleep!
