Being an Only Child is a Disease in Itself?

Children with no siblings have a habit of getting much attention from their parents since their childhood days. They turn into an obnoxious and they are assumed to have grown into strange and at the same time self-confident adults who are unable to compromise in a relationships.

A rubbish concept, really. I would say that being an only child has a negligible effect on who you are, and you certainly do not need to ‘get rid of it’. Everything in our environment affects how we develop, and who we become. There are many variables which influence us – culture, language, school, upbringing, genetics etc.

A friend of mine claims that only-children are always a bit ‘weird‘. But it just isn’t true. I know plenty of weird people with siblings, and sometimes their siblings are weird as well.

From my point of view, children who are a single child are very good at making friends and building a quick friendship. They have a quality of taking initiative to make friends which are a valuable skill to have in life. And they have a tendency of spending much time with them.
