No. The fact that I was raised as a homeschooled only child made me become much more social as I got older, and I'd like lots of kids (I have two so far, taking a break now but hopefully more in the future!)

My mom had one sister, who came along when my mom was already a teen. She felt lonely during much of her childhood, and as a result she had five kids fairly close together so we'd always have playmates and something fun and interesting going on.
On the other hand, I saw how much hard work it was for her to have five kids, so I purposely had only two.
But I can see other ways that our families are very similar, just not in the number of children.
