Were you the golden child or the odd child out in your family?
Considering that I am an only child, I was ( and still am-ha) the golden child. I must say that although I was (and still am lol ) spoiled, my parents taught me right from wrong, were and still are there when I need them, raised me to be independent and did not allow me to do whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted. I had a schedule for everything (homework, bedtime, etc.). My television watching was monitored and so was my phone use. I ate my veggies and was respectful. I think I turned out to be just fine!
You are DEFINITELY NOT SPOILED at all. You are independent and gutsy in addition to being quite a no-nonsense young woman. I thoroughly applaud you. More young people should be like you. You have demonstrated that we onlies are all right people
Both. To be honest, I don't think there is such a thing as a regular child. Each is special in their own way. But golden yes. My siblings have yet to reach my GPA and number of degrees. Even so, they are golden in their own way. My brother is obsessed with nuclear engineering, my focus is psychology, and my sister adores animals. They have just as much knowledge in their areas as I do mine.
