What are the behavioral differences among the only kids and the kids who have siblings?

Excellent statement indeed. Only children are GREAT. They are also better & smarter than children w/siblings. They are also happier & better adjusted. The old adage that children w/siblings are happier is pure myth. They are maladjusted.
Thank you Tamara for your advice. I agree to it :) My only concern is that taking a decision to have second child is something that is not in the hands of a single partner. Both of the partners should go ahead with it mutually.
Thank you for your input Grace. Your guidance is of great help.
You are quite welcome Nothing wrong w/single children except from a prejudicial sibling culture & society.There is MORE WRONG w/ having multiple children-infighting, favoritism,vying for parental favors/attention. Wouldn't put any child thru tha
I have one son and don't have plans for another because extra kids means extra expenditures plus u should also look for extra source of income and if u give one thing to one kid, u can't overlook another. Still, I feel having siblings is fun at times
Yeah, every thing has it's own set of pros and cons. Even my husband is an only son and I know it becomes really difficult to manage at times.
This is such bulloockey. If you think siblings will help w/aging parents, THINK AGAIN.W/aging parents, there will be ALWAYS be one sibling who will have the responsibility while the rest DON'T.Only children are well-adjusted.Answer is pure B------!
Well Grace, I cannot comment because my husband is the only child and have to take care of his mom completely. I myself have one son. People often ask me to consider having another child. I am confused and don't know if I should have more kids.
You are almost right Grace... there is always one sibling at one time who takes responsibility for a certain period of time. In my case it was about 8 years... now my older brother is taking care of her for a while. we have that option.
