Chuckle when they talk to an only child, who now has more than one child of their own?

I love the question "Is it normal for them to argue this much?" LOL

  • I was just thinking about that. My kids do not argue much. (They are teens.) Maybe because they are homeschooled and are around each other alot?

  • lol
    Homeschooling doesn't have anything to do with it. (I was home/unschooled)

  • I thought maybe they were just closer. :)

  • I know several singletons, and it is funny watching them grapple with the concept of "sibling rivalry". They never experienced it, and some of the questions are too funny!

  • I think that makes sense if they are home schooled and together a lot it could make them closer and not argue as much as normal!

    i think its normal for ppl to have questions about parenting, and there is nothing wrong with that.
    not everyone is a genius and has answers to everything.

  • My husband had three older brothers that are 10+ years older than he is so he was basically an only child because the brothers all lived with other family members (half siblings.) We have 5 kids so, I hear that often. I had 2 sisters that lived with me.
