    I agree; it seems having numerous children must eventually limit the time you can spend with each of them. Still, larger families can still be very loving and functional groups. I'll probably shoot for 2-3 children myself. Thanks for your input.

    Only does not have to mean lonely.Not at all. Arrange play dates for your son. Get him involved in activities. Have him be close to his cousins Only children can find companionship thru friends & cousins. One doesn't need siblings for companions

    I'll welcome any input, thanks for sharing your story!

    Only children aren't spoiled and problematic children. That is an old myth. Only children are well adjusted, mature, high achievers, & highly resourceful children.

    Only children do share & are raised to share. Being an only child was awesome.You're adhering to baseless, even atavistic stereotypes regarding only children. I know people w/siblings who are selfish & refuse to share because they're forced t
