    To those who are only children, how do you respond to people who cast verbal dispersions to

    your only child status?

    I haven't had it happen a lot.  Once when a bunch of ladies and I were getting things ready for Vacation Bible School, I jokingly said something about being an only child and this old biddy looked at me and said, "It shows."

    To this day I have no clue what she meant but she obviously saw something I was giving off. I don't know. That is the only insult I can recall.

      I liked what you said "old biddy".  Yes, sadly, there is still a negative perception of us only children.   You see we live in a sibling society which praises the multichild family while still denigrating the one-child family.   This is sad indeed!
