What causes so many people with siblings, especially those from large families, to have an intensely

virulent and ingrained prejudice and animus against only children? It seems in this society, children with siblings are glorified while children who have no siblings are demonized or worse. According to this society, the multichild family is viewed is the most desirable and ideal family. In fact, the multichild family is the only viable family choice. Although there have been studies that show that there is NOTHING WRONG with being an only child and in fact, it is more advantageous to be an only child, there is still the societal animus that being an only child is inherently odd.

    I found that many had animus against only children because we had the things & opportunities that they did not have. We onlies had monies for things beyond the necessities. Many wished that they were US. I and another girl felt this animus.
