Having no siblings definitely has its ups and downs, but I wouldn't have it any other way! Most people jump to the conclusion that you're spoiled or were an accident since your parents didn't have other kids, but being an only child is actually amazing. While my parents didn't give me every single thing I wanted, they taught me lots and I did earn everything I got.
1. Don't you get lonely?
Well, no, I do have friends. It also helped growing up when technology wasn't quite exactly where it is today. Everyone would play outside or with each other as opposed to behind a screen, and it kept everyone more connected. It also taught me that it's okay to spend time alone and it can actually be refreshing.
2. Do you wish you had siblings?
Occasionally growing up, the thought crossed my mind, but I never dreaded not having siblings.
4. You must be spoiled
With love, definitely. I might have gotten more than if I were to have a sister or brother, but my parents definitely taught me how to work for what I want.
5. Why didn't your parents want more kids?
When you do it right the first time, why would you need to have more? It just isn't what my parents wanted, but it worked out just fine.
6. Are your parents stricter since there are no other children to focus on?
I wouldn't say that fact alone makes a parent more or less strict. Yes, there were more eyes and focus on me, but my parents still allowed me to do things with friends and have freedoms.
7. What's it like being an only child?
I wouldn't consider it anything special. It was just how I grew up and I think I had a pretty good childhood.
8. You must not like to share
You're right, I don't. Who does? But it doesn't mean I can't or don't know how to.
