Do you think that children who grow up with siblings are happier?


How much difference do siblings really make in a child's life? What are your own and your kids experiences?

    Children w/o siblings are freer to develop into their own persons.They don't have to conform to a sibling construct which is commonplace in multichild households.They aren't subjected to gamesmanshp nor favoritism which effects a child's self-esteem.

    You are so right, when there is more than one child in the family, there is oftentimes sibling rivalry There is also favoritism &preferential treatment of one child over others.Siblings can be treated unequally based upon birth order etc.

    Not necessarily the case. Friends LOOK after each other and so do cousins. I had friends and cousins look after me and I them. There are siblings who would not hesitate to thrown another sibling under the bridge. GET REAL here!

    D, I agree with the loneliness factor. I still remember a Sunday. afternoon when I was 7. My mom and dad sent me outside with my doll buggy. I walked up and down the quiet street and thought to myself, "Oh, THIS is what the word "lonely" means.
